You may already be familiar with Restaurantosaurus in Animal Kingdom’s Dinoland, U.S.A. This popular Counter Service option serves up classics like Burgers and Chicken Nuggets in a super fun — and seriously funny (check it out here!) — atmosphere.
Well, a new offering has just arrived at Restaurantosaurus! Should you find yourself in Dinoland looking for a spot to relax and unwind, you can visit the Restaurantosaurus Lounge!
The Lounge is open daily from 5:00 pm until park close during its three month trial period. When you see this sign, just enter through the door in the building behind it. (It’s on the left hand side of the restaurant.)
You’ll find the check-in area is ready to greet you!
Guests can place their orders directly at the counter based on the menu offerings, which currently feature a selection of Cocktails like the Tequilasaurus margarita and Primordial Booze as well as Mocktails such as the Teal Rex and Paleontology Punch.
Two Small Bites are on offer: Buffalo Chicken Dip with House-made Chips and Sweet-and-Spicy Mixed Nuts.
Then just find your seat!
A portion of the restaurant has been entirely dedicated to Lounge seating.
Candles have been placed upon the tables to inspire a more relaxing setting.
But, of course, the supplies and sights inside of the Paleontology storage area of the restaurant are still in place.
Again, the Restaurantosaurus Lounge is on a trial run for three months. So if it meets with success, it may become a regular offering in the park. This isn’t the first time Disney has dedicated a portion of a Counter Service location to serve as a lounge. Anyone remember the Rebel Hangar Star Wars Lounge that was held at Backlot Express in Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends in days of yore?
Now, the Restaurantosaurus Lounge is by no means as highly themed as that experience, nor are the food and drink offerings as unique and diverse. (In fairness, though, this Lounge is not running as part of a special event such as Star Wars Weekends.) But if it survives the trial run, could it perhaps expand on its offerings and theme? And, if so, would you be interested in a more permanent Lounge in Dinoland? Please chime in with your thoughts!
