I dislike the separate bays for certain food items. Be nice to be in one line for your entire families lunch choice! Also more seating and larger tables for larger families to sit at!

By far our worst meal of the trip. They did not have any ribs when we were there, so we ordered the roasted chicken plate and a chicken sandwich. The roasted chicken was dry and the vegetables were cold. The "chicken' on the sandwich did not even look like food. It was gray, dry, and flavorless. We had to load... More

Cosmic Ray is typical institutional food. But for a good place for lunch, because you can sit outside under an umbrella and watch the people go by on the boulevard. My wife always has the Angus cheese burger and it is satisfactory. I had the foot long chili dog this time and there is no way you can hold this... More

We stopped for a quick bite and to get out of the cold. The place was over crowded but I guess everyone had the same idea we did. The food was good, but the tables were dirty. It was very busy and I felt like we were treated as "just a number" by the cashier. It had a great view... More

This is one of my favorite counter service restaurants in Magic Kingdom. I think I've eaten here almost every time I've visited the Magic Kingdom. They have a cheese dispenser so you can add cheese to your fries or burger, or whatever. They also have a great topping bar for sandwiches. I got the burger most recently and was not... More

This is one of the best counter service restaurants in the MK. We recommend the pulled pork sandwich. Overall a good value.

This place was great, had awesome chicken and cheese fries!! Being able to build your own burger/chicken sandwich was outstanding, can't wait to go back there!

The burgers were fresh. The buns were soft. The ketchup was wonderful (yep, we noticed that it was very good ketchup). The restaurant was clean, relatively quiet, and quick. For a burger joint it was good food and good service too.

Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe is situated opposite the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway Car ride in Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland. Running with the whole Tomorrowland theme, it is meant to be futuristic and space-like. Lots of silver tones in the decor and of course you can't forget Sonny Eclipse, the animatronic alien type guy who puts on a cabaret style show single handedly... More

This is a cute restaurant, and we had a wonderful view of the castle changing colors and looking frozen. I had a rotisserie chicken, which was really good. My daughter chose the ribs and they were very fatty and greasy. She did not eat them. We were used to Busch Gardens Tampa. They have smokehouse ribs that are delicious. Apparently... More
