T-Rex Cafe

There are two T-Rex Cafés; one at Disney World and one in Kansas City, Kansas. We’ve been to both of them in the past six months so I thought I’d do a comparison of the two.

For the Disney T-Rex I’m using our newest visit pictures as well as pictures from previous years.
We’ll start with the entrance.

This is the side of the Kansas City location. This is what I saw from the parking lot so I knew where to park.

The outsides are pretty similar so let’s move on to the inside. Connor thought that the Kansas City location was bigger and he might be right because it also has an upstairs dining area. The Disney T-Rex has a sea bar area, jungly main dining area, and the ice cave.

Kansas City has the sea themed bar and a sea themed dining area. They also have a non jungle dinosaur area and then upstairs is the ice cave and the jungle dining area.

Moving on to the food. The menus are different. They have a few of the same things but overall the menus are completely different. The kids menus however are almost exactly the same. The big difference on the kid’s menu was that the boys wanted ICEEs and the Disney location told us we could only order ICEEs in the souvenir cup and the Kansas City location let us get ICEEs without buying cups.

Supersaurus Sampler- they have one at Kansas City but it's a little different. We really loved everything on here.

Dexter's Dual Dip- this another one that they had at the Disney location but again it is a little different. This one had Chili con Queso dip and Spinach and Pepper Jack Queso dip. Both were really good.

The boys got the Paint-A-Dino which was really cute. It is served on a plate shaped like an artist's palette. It comes with a dinosaur Rice Kristie Treat, a paintbrush, red and blue "paint", and some mini M&Ms.

Besides just eating there is a gift shop and a play area. Both locations have a Build-A-Dino. The boys both made dines during our first Disney visit. Connor made a superhero T-Rex named Roger Hager and JT made a Brachiosaurus named Walt. You can also purchase geodes and break them in a geode breaking machine. There is also a sluice and bags can be purchased containing different gems and rock to pan for. Last but not least there is a dig site. The big difference between the two locations is that the Kansas location charges to go in the play area so we did not do any of the activities there.

So that is my comparison of the two. They’re both fun to go to but I do think that the Kansas City location should not charge to go in their play area. The boys had a ton of fun at the Disney location this past trip. They especially loved the dig and panning for gems.

Who else has been to T-Rex Café and what are your favorite things about it?
