Recently, Restaurantosaurus at Disney’s Animal Kingdom underwent a slight menu change, so we decided we should head on over and check it out.

New to the menu is a Grilled Chicken BLT Sandwich, but there were a few things on the menu here that we had never tried before (which we will review below).

If you are interested in hearing more about the Double Angus Bacon Cheeseburger that is not pictured on the menu, we have an entire review dedicated just to that item that you should check out. Also,m Flights of Wonder is not a menu item and I’m not sure exactly why it has a strangely placed ad on the back of the menu…

I subjected myself to the new Chicken BLT sandwich. You can’t see the chicken in the picture above because the sandwich is topped with 1/4 of a tomato essentially.

The bun was soft and flaky (again, why don’t they just have this bun everywhere?), the bacon was cooked nicely, the tomato piece was large, juicy, and very fresh, and the chicken was cooked well enough. I know Disney seems to be overusing gate arugula lately (it is also on the Buffalo Chicken Chips we reviewed yesterday), but I really enjoy it. This sandwich was good and filling, and I would order it again if I was dining here.

Chicken Breast Nuggets with Fries and Southwest Salad ($10.49)

Someone join our party ordered the ubiquitous Chicken Breast Nuggets, so I took a picture. The Weird part is that it now comes with a Southwest Salad. The Chicken and the fries were fine, but the Southwest Salad was bit on the unpleasant side and completely different from what we had experienced with the baked potatoes at Fairfax Fare.

Chili-Cheese Hot Dog ($10.69)

First off, the mushrooms do not naturally come with the hot dog, but were added at the rather large toppings bar you can find at Restaurantosaurus. This thing was terrible. The bun was flavorless, the hot dog itself was fairly standard, and chili-cheese topping left a lot to be desired. This is probably not what you want to eat here.

We also had an order of Chili-Cheese Fries, which as you would guess after reading about the hot dog, were also pretty bad. I don’t enjoy Disney counter service french fries and the chili-cheese topping didn’t improve upon them at all.

Overall

I like Restaurantosaurus typically. The interior and music loop are a lot of fun and there is certainly enough on the menu to please, you just need to be careful what you order. If you like chicken, the chicken sandwich and the chicken breast nuggets are fine options, and if you like burgers, the single or double cheeseburger won’t steer you wrong. Unlimited fountain beverage refills and a sizable toppings bar help out a lot too. I would easily go here over Flame Tree Barbecue and Pizzafari currently, but I would probably prefer Yak and Yeti’s counter service offering if I’m going that route.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Looks like they just moved things around a bit on the menu and raised the prices yet again. The Bacon cheese burger was $3 cheaper only a few years ago. Sodas were about 80 cents cheaper as well. I’m also not sure why they added the southwest salad to the Chicken nuggets as that was already plenty filling. Thankfully you can say “No salad” and they don’t charge you for it. (saves you a few bucks usually.)
