Location: Dinoland, USA, Disney's Animal Kingdom
Restaurantosaurus has one of the most elaborate back
stories of any restaurant found in Walt Disney World. As the story
goes, the location was originally a fishing lodge, followed by the
original Dino Institute, and is currently a home for a group of
college students studying paleontology over at the Boneyard.
Scattered throughout the restaurant are various items showing how
the group of students spend their free time, but one of their most
entertaining ways to pass the time can be found outside near the
sign for the restaurant:
Can you see it? Just below, and a little to the
left, of the sign are two chairs. While this looks like a popular
hangout found in various houses near college campuses around the
country, it's the item on the wall that is the most interesting.
Here you can see that there are two bows and a line
of arrows. What on earth are they shooting at? In order to discover
that, you need to turn around.
As you can see, the future paleontologists are doing
target practice at the water tower on the other side of the
building. If you look even closer, you will see that a spot is
available for someone to sit at in order to retrieve the arrows.
After retrieving the arrows, they place them in a bucket where the
send them back to the other students sitting back on the roof.
Next time you are in the restaurant, make sure to
explore every detail found within to discover a little bit more
about the group of paleontologists living in this area!
