This place is chaos. Super long lines and everyone fighting for tables. I actually don't mind their food (they offer other things besides the standard burger) but man is it crowded and crazy!!

Burgers are great and love that you can add all the toppings you want. We sat in the main seating area and heard cosmic ray singing (heard all the songs about 4 times through though). I will be back next time I'm at Disney!

I love Cosmic Ray's. There are definitely better quick service restaurants at the Magic Kingdom, but my husband and I always forgo a second lunch at Be Our Guest or a waffle sandwich from Sleepy Hollow in order to indulge my guilty pleasure of eating at Ray's. We always get burgers and my husband finds seats next to Sonny Eclipse... More

Quick service food in the magic kingdom is all pretty much the same. This spot does have several different bays with different offerings though, so it may be good for families when everyone wants something different. Sun Eclipse is a pretty good time too.

The hotdogs were superb, larger than other areas of the park. The free topping station was amazing and the hot cheese pumps were a particular highlight. There was always somewhere to sit and at the busiest times there were Disney assistants escorting people to free tables. Great place with a perfect atmosphere.

Thank god for this restaurant. It had air conditioning and ample seating. The menu and food is so so but what do you expect for $12 a head. The biggest bonus of this restaurant is it's location and the fact it's indoors. It helped immensely in the rain and the heat.

I may be a little biased because I used to come here all the time as a kid. I loved seeing Cosmic Ray (a large alien animatronic that sings and plays the piano). The food is pretty average but I like their selection. I ordered the Greek Salad and a soup and my boyfriend got a burger which he was... More

The food was just Ok but it was nice to get out of the heat for awhile. The lines to get food were long but there was a lot of seating. We had an early lunch to avoid the crowds.

We went while it was super hot so it's the prefect place to cool off. We used our quick dining tickets here, it was soo much food for us. The burgers are huge and they give you a huge amount of fries. Drinks and dessert. You can order whatever... We had a great view of the parade that passed through... More

This location has the same burgers and fries and other things as so many of the other places. We sat at a table at night where we could see the Castle and the video presentation on the Castle, which was cool. This is nothing special, but a decent enough place to fill the tank before hitting the rides again.
