Not just a burger joint

We've been going to Disney World for years and often had hamburgers at Cosmic Ray's. This time we wanted something different and Cosmic Ray's delivered. One of us had a rotisserie chicken and rib platter, another had a half rotisserie chicken and another enjoyed an Angus bacon burger. The ribs were... read more

This was our second visit to Cosmic Rays and it was just as good as the first time. Between 4 adults and 2 kids, we tried the bacon cheeseburgers, grilled chicken sandwich, pb&j and grilled cheese. The burgers and chicken sandwich are made better by the toppings bar. There is only one and it's easy to miss if you come... More

This is a great location if you're in a rush at the MK. The counter service was very quick and accurate. The food would rank well above your typical fast food joint. We had a large group and we were in and out in less than 45 minutes.

The food is very tasteless for the price. It's just a fast food for the theme park. The burger was cold. Luckily the fries were a little better. Doesn't get much better than this at the park though. Bring your own lunch. Lol

The Starlight Cafe is a quick service meal location on the border of Tomorrow Land and Fantasy Land. It offers an assortment of chicken and hamburger meals. The Magic Kingdom's food choices are poor, but this is my favorite quick meal location. It has a large sit down area inside giving guests a chance to cool off while eating. The... More

We walked in and were immediatly pushed towards an order spot! It wasn't a good eating environment too many people around and there wasn't a spot that we wernt bumped or moved by walking people near or by us! The bathrooms were HORRIBLE!! Won't ever eat there again!! And we were not anywhere near cosmic ray

It is fast food but everything Disney is well done. It is short on seating. We were unable to find a table inside. The toppings bar is great and includes hot cheese. The lines waiting to order can be long during lunch and dinner. The food quality appears to be very good and tastes so much better then McDonalds

Good place if your in the area. One thing we did notice not enough seating, we ended up standing at a tall table top.

There are a lot of different "bays" to choose from here. Each "bay" has a different type of food to order. We ate here for dinner one night and got the bacon cheeseburger and chicken tender kids meal. Both me and my husband liked the cheeseburgers and the fact that there was a toppings bar with typical things like lettuce... More

It was great to seat and have some shadow during our visit to Magic Kingdom. The area of the restaurant is very clean, what is really good with all these people around. But don't order the BMT, it seems that it was ready since the day before, not tasting good at all.
