Ray is Entertaining. No More Free Nacho Cheese

Our family used to enjoy the free nacho cheese at the fixin's bar. It was great to put on our hot dogs and french fries. This year they did away with that and they do not offer it even as something to pay for.

The best place to get lunch! Half a chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans...plus a drink and a Mickey straw...less than 15 dollars!? At Disney World? And it was delicious? Such a good place. Tons of options for everyone to choose from. Amazing.

This is a very cute place to eat. The main attraction is Cosmic Ray, an Alien Lounge Singer that serenade s you during you meal. He also tells jokes. Much of he food is typical Disney fare, but they also have options for adults such as the rotisserie chicken and pulled pork sandwiches. You can also find soups. The food... More

Nothing here is really that special. We ate there around midnight on an extra magic hours night because it was pretty much the only restaurant open at that point. I had chicken nuggets, and my husband had a burger. Nothing different that you couldn't get anywhere else on Disney property. Sonny Eclipse was a touch that made the restaurant unique,... More

This place was simple but ok. I got the chicken sandwich and it was good. The desserts aren't anything special. It's big, busy, and loud. It's a good place to cool down as it's pretty cold inside and the location is great.

There is a great variety of food here, but you do have to double-check the menus at each bay, as some of them have different options that the others. The portions are very good and especially at lunch, could easily be shared. Love that you can get healthy things, lots of grilled options and salads, etc. Disney food is consistently... More

Good veggie burgers and fries. They cook fries in separate oil from the meat if you let them know that you prefer it that way!

Look no further for a great quick service option at Magic Kingdom. This has become our go to place when visiting primarily because it is consistently good food. Standard burgers/chicken and dogs and always good. The cast members at this location seem to be the most helpful and friendly in my opinion. Also if you choose your seating right it's... More

We had some really poor service in here, so bad that a manager gave us our food for free. I know people have off days, but our server just had a bad attitude. The food is a good use of quick service credits , and the salad bar is good .
