Offering different types of sandwiches, salads and desserts, we had Greek salads with chicken. The food was good, the quantity is fine, there is plenty of seating and there is an audio animatronic space creature providing jokes and music while you eat. It is air conditioned, and a nice place to stop for a meal.

Hit up Cosmic Ray's for a quick supper. The night before we ate at Columbia Harbour house in the Magic Kingdom and it was delish and the service was fab. We were expecting the same and we got neither. Cosmic Ray's offers up hamburgers/hot dogs/chicken. Simple foods. You would think as such it would be impossible to screw up. Wrong.... More

Cosmic Ray's is a great spot to stop for a variety of good value food. From roast chicken to burgers, the entire family should be able to find something they like for a reasonable price. If you want a healthy and filling meal, I recommend the roast chicken with mashed potatoes and beans. It may not be your mom's Sunday... More

Got a hot dog today and totally tasteless as well as cold. Well the cold could be something to do with we couldn't get a table to eat our food. Loads of tables with people not eating anything but apparently they couldn't be asked to move. I paid over $70 for food and drinks which I would pay in a... More

This is my favorite quick service restaurant of all time. They have the best burgers on Disney Property. There are three bays, Burgers, Chicken, and Sandwich, but really you can order anything at any bay. Every time I go to the Magic Kingdom, I have to eat at Cosmic Ray's.

One giant commissary with that level of food. Again, if you're under the Disney "everything is magical" spell, nothing will deter you. Expensive cafeteria food with an annoying animatronic display onstage that's supposed to be funny, clever, entertaining..? It's none of those. Another lazy animated mannequin display with overpriced food. Service is fast food level. Cleanliness is what you would... More

Like many WDW restaurants it was quite pricey, however the food was great! Our family enjoyed the food & air condition! It is quite a bit noisy in there with the singer & all of the people...but then again it is Disney after all! Enjoy!

Great cafe for quick service. Fits in the TOMORROWLAND theming extremely well. Love the three bays chicken, salad. And the guy with the keyboard is ace. Definitely best quick service at the Magic Kingdom. Great for kids too and very fast service. All in all excellent
