At first it was so busy we wanted to leave... but then

It was packed. I mean PACKED. Three bays of counters. Multiple lines per bay. Every line packed with people. The staff at the door assured us that we shouldn't worry, that they have a ton of staff and that it would go fast. They were right! Each bay has slightly different options, so we selected... read more

The quality of the food here is typical Disney quick service. Good burgers, hot dogs, various sandwiches, and similar food. It's all totally acceptable, nothing to complain about, but it's also nothing that's going to leave a big impression on you. There is a pretty decent variety in the menu, something to satisfy everyone in your group, and the prices,... More

The food is decent, but what sets it apart is the atmosphere. This is a kid friendly place which has a singing alien playing piano in the main dining area. Most kids should enjoy it! They also have a chicken and ribs combo that is enough food for two adults to share!

A great option for when you are spending the day at Magic Kingdom, there is something here to suit every taste and some special diets eg vegetarian, kosher etc. The is also a really good condiments bar, not every quick service option has these so its a nice touch. The main draw here the entertainment watching Sonny Eclipse is a... More

My family and I stopped here for lunch during our Disney trip this past December. The place was overrun with people, with hardly enough seating to match the large crowds. They offered your stereotypical amusement park items, burgers, fries, etc. It was fine but that's about it. However, I do think this place is a great stop if you have... More

You can stop in for a quick meal. There are three venues inside with different foods such as chicken, sandwiches, and burgers. It is self serve and not that expensive. Many tables and lots of room. Handi capped accessible. Something to eat for everyone in a big party.

Large assortment of entries and standard Disney drink selection. Can not get a table before getting food prevents large groups saving large areas of tables. A little crowded as rein increased but everyone handled the Mother Nature delay with good spirits. Staff continuously mopped wet floor to ensure the safety of everyone. They also roamed the area cleaning tables, emptying... More

Cosmic Ray's is crowded and busy even in the off season. I had the roast chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans and it was surprisingly good. The desserts are average at best but it was a nice relatively healthy option in the Magic Kingdom. The ordering system is a bit confusing at first but its not a bad spot... More

Stopped by here based on good reviews I found online. Not really disappointed, but not wowed either. The décor is nice and matches Tomorrowland, with lots of space for eating. Lots of ordering stations makes this one efficient machine designed to get large crowds fed quickly. Luckily we weren't there with any large crowds. If you get a burger, there... More

We enjoyed the fixing bar (my 7 year old loaded up on pickles and tomato slices). It was very cool and didn't take too long to order but patience is still needed. The music is a bit loud but we just wanted to eat and get out of the sun. Portion sizes were so big that my daughter and I... More
