    I have $200 in Rainforest Cafe Gift Certificates. Three of us will be going on the trip (2 adults, 1 child) how many meals do you think we can get with that. We don't have one anywhere near here, so I want to be able to use all of the gift certificates while we are there.

    would say 4 maybe 5 meals......when u figure in tips etc...of course it depends on what u eat...

    why not check and see if they have a menu on the rainforest site....or maybe you could email them ....with a general question about meal costs

    Can you use extra at the merchandise store? Last July we got t shirts on clearance for $2.50 and beenie babies for $3. It was a good bargain and great souvenire. Good quality shirts too.

    are you saying that 4 plates of food at rain forest COST $200.Thats $50. a plate???? Each visit??

    Oh man,I thought food was one place I could save some money??

    I guess I will be eating at Mcdonalds alot if thats the case. I like food,but thats crazy![and I thought $8.00 a plate locally was awful!!]

    On a recent trip we had 2 adult entrees and one kids meal, two sodas and the bill was about $40 with tip. I had a $25 gift certificate so it only "cost" us $15. That's a little pricier than most meals we ate while at WDW (being McDonald's officionados ourselves with two small children) but it was a splurge while at Downtown Disney. Be prepared for a long wait if you go at a peak time -- I think we waited 2 1/2 hours.

    ...within reason. As stated before, it depends on what you order as to what your bill will be. Alcoholic drinks will run the tab up. But, the food is not $50.00 per plate. It isn't THAT good!!! LOL

    I live in the real world, so I choose to vacation in Fantasy Land!!

    Be sure to sign up for the Safari Club. There's a $10 charge, but you get a $10 certificate to use on your first visit. Club members get priority seating!

    Thanks for the info. What do you say, budget $50 per meal? The gift certificates would then give us 4 meals, not counting tips.

    I had a $100 gift cert. last year, and when I went to Las Vegas, I paid for lunch, and they gave me the change. I then used the change to go to a couple of other places I wanted to go to. I thought that I would have to use all there for food or mdse.
