Rainforest Cafe has always delighted guests with incredible sights and sounds (if not its food) and it aims to upgrade its volcanic status this fall when it unleashes a revamped volcano-facade for its restaurant. Much of Downtown Disney is receiving a facelift and Rainforest Cafe is just one of the latest to receive its construction walls. When the restaurant’s new facade is unveiled with its more intense Volcano, it will also highlight a new lounge area aptly named Lava Lounge. Guests who wish to dine at the restaurant during the construction will have that opportunity as the restaurant will remain operational throughout the construction. The Rainforest Cafe’s volcano refurbishment is expected to be complete this October (2012). For more on the project including a look at the concept art and photos of its current progress, join us after the break.
Come this fall this volcano is going to be quite a bit more active!
As we mentioned, the restaurant remains operational during the facade makeover.
Here is a look at the concept art, which shows off the “lava flow” down the volcano, the all new “Lava Lounge” that appears to have an outdoor section facing the beautiful waterfront of Downtown Disney.

This facelift seems to be quite a massive undertaking…
…and you’ve got to figure much needed.
You can never have too much lava.
Make sure you don’t miss the video of the erupting volcano embedded below!
We have embedded a video of the volcano at a Rainforest Cafe in Galveston, Texas that is probably a great indicator of what we might see in the new WDW version. One word of caution before playing the video, you might want to turn down your sound a couple of notches. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya 😉
