Review: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe at Magic Kingdom

Today, we head to Tomorrowland for a visit to an “out-of-this-world” dining spot — Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe!

Situated on the corner between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, this spot actually boasts views of Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Main Street USA, and the Castle Hub!

With plenty of standard American fast food offerings, you’ll find lots of options to please pickier eaters here. And while at first glance the atmosphere isn’t all that interesting, it holds a few surprises.

Let’s head in and see what Cosmic Ray’s has to offer these days!

Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe

Atmosphere

Cosmic Ray’s takes up a huge chunk of real estate right on the edge of Tomorrowland. The vibe is retro-future, much like the rest of the land. If you are a big fan of The Jetsons, Lost in Space, and the People Mover, this is the place for you!

Inside, you’ll find ample indoor and outdoor seating on a couple of different levels. And here’s a surprise — if you’re a newbie to Cosmic Ray’s: there’s a floor show!

Cosmic Rays -- Sonny View Seating

Throughout the day, animatronic alien lounge singer Sonny Eclipse comes to life and entertains you with his signature disco-blues style that is both futuristic and retro at once. Listen closely to the songs to get a few laughs.

The area where Sonny performs does tend to be a little loud, so if you aren’t a fan of talking over music while you eat, there is also inside seating on the upper level that’s a bit set apart from the noise.

The 2012 Disney World Turkey Crawl!

Happy Turkey Day, Everyone!

Holiday Turkey Sandwich at Earl of Sandwich

Sad to say I won’t be spending Thanksgiving Day strolling down Main Street or awaiting my turn in Cars Land. But that doesn’t stop me of dreaming about all things turkey — and more precisely, all things Disney turkey!

You know how much we lurve a good crawl around here, so if you love turkey, I say skip the fancy sit down dinner and take a more progressive approach to your fall feast with the 2012 Disney Food Blog Turkey Crawl!

Since we know you have many foods to happily consume this holiday week, we are limiting the challenge to only four stops with a whole lot of latitude. However, there are definitely some other favorites that would be perfect additions (Earl of Sandwich Holiday Turkey Sandwich, anyone?)!

First Turkey Course: The Smoked Turkey Leg

There is no way we could even suggest a turkey crawl without mentioning the quintessential Disney turkey treat: the Smoked Turkey Leg!

Juicy, smokey, and big enough to count as a meal (or two), you may reach your turkey tipping point after consuming just one of these.

You’ll find the primal treats in all four Disney World parks!

Starring Rolls Cafe Turkey Foccacia Sandwich

When it’s time to move onto the sandwich course (is there such a thing?) head over to one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite: Starring Rolls Cafe for the huge Turkey Foccacia Sandwich.

Turkey is stacked high and [Read more…]
