The nachos ARE awesome. So is the appetizer sampler. The bruschetta is FAB!

It's def true about the walk-ups. We've gone to T-Rex at least twice without ressies. Both times we were seated immediately...and we arrived at peak dining times.

Have fun!!!

You must have gotten really lucky or have better luck than me. I had ressies, select club card and still had 20 min wait for party of 4. this was even when i bypassed line of folks waiting to get to podium to ask about seating.

? about t-rex

I didn't think this was part of disney dining?
What's it like inside.
We were thinking about trying something new, but we will have a 2 year old with us so I'm not sure if that's a great idea?

Thanks

T-Rex is a great restaurant! It has dinosaurs and mammoths which all move and sound off. Their are meteor showers that streak through the ceiling, my kids absolutely loved it. the food was great and the servers where very friendly and attentive. They encourage getting up and taking pictures. It is loud when the meteor showers happen though because this is when all the animals sound off. It was definitely a must do. LOL, my DH just asked me If we could try it again during our next trip.

I have never waited 20 min at T-Rex or RFC even when the wait was well over an hour and I waited through the first line. The last time we waited through the first line about 10 min and were seated in 5 more when the wait being quoted was 1.5 hours.

Thanks for the advice about the card! I just signed up. I figure it can't hurt and skipping long waits would be wonderful!

The wait to get to the podium during Christmas week was HUGE! Over half an hour just to get your name on the list, then another 90 minutes for a table. If travelling during peak periods, I would definitely have reservations.

I've never known them to combine discounts so I would bet no.

Did you try to make reservations online? We love T-REX also. Sells out pretty quickly. You might want to take the one of the times offered and then check back every once in a while to see if other times open up.

Have a Great Week----
