Walt Disney World has two Rainforest Cafe locations; one at Animal Kingdom and one at Disney Springs. My favourite location is by far the Animal Kingdom location. It fits in perfectly with the theming of Animal Kingdom, and it also has its own secret entrance into the park!

In September 2017 I visited Walt Disney World and stayed at Caribbean Beach. The day I flew out I got the update that Hurricane Irma was looking to pass directly over Walt Disney World.
I have been in multiple hurricanes in Orlando, so brushed it off as nothing to worry about. I knew what precautions I needed to take in the instance that we would be on lockdown and I knew what would be the limit.
Flying out was a little bumpy, but wasn't anything to worry about. When I arrived for check in, they did inform us again that the hurricane path was still directed towards Disney World. I was told that currently there were no precautions to take and everything was still operating as normal.
It is worth noting that as this point, Caribbean Beach was undergoing severe refurbishments and the quick service dining location was currently in a marquee.
When I got to the room, there was a package on the table.
