Yesterday, 4/28/04, my best friend, his dd, and I went to AK for a day trip. At the end of the day, as the park closed, we had problem deciding what to do for dinner. As we all know AK has only one table service restaurant. The Rain Forest Cafe. We have eaten there several times, together and separately. I have nothing against the place. Good food and service. Been there, done that. You know? I have to admit that I really don't understand Disney's thinking on this. When you think about EPCOT having 14 full service restaraunts and AK only having one it doesn't make sense. But that's another thread. Sorry, I'm just making a short story long! Anyway, it was 5:30 or so (the park closed at 5p.m.) and RFC was packed so we decided to eat else where. I recommended the Maya Grill at nearby CSR. My friend was against this because he felt he'd feel out of place coming fresh from the park. We were all dressed in T-shirts and shorts. Our usual park garb. It wasn't like I wanted to go to Victoria & Albert's. We ended up eating offsite before we drove home. Does anyone think we would have been made to feel uncomfortable eating at one of the resort restaurants dressed this casually? Personally I don't think so, especially at such an early hour. I even offered to buy dinner for the three of us, but to no avail. So what do you think? (I ended up paying anyway, just at Red Lobster!) P.S. We had lunch at Tusker House Restaurant and Bakery. There's not much to review but if anyone wants one I'll write it up.
