Great Quick Service in the Magic Kingdom

When people think of Disney World, they think of Mickey and the Gang, Cinderella's Castle, the rides, the shows, and the parades. But do you think about the FOOD? Many Disney enthusiasts do!!! There are many wonderful places to eat at Disney World. If you are like me and my family, you are on a budget. Whether you are on a dining plan or paying as you go, one of the best values in all of Disney is my favorite, Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe which is located in Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland.

This quick service restaurant has so much to choose from it is sure to satisfy everyone in your family. Menu items range from grilled or rotisserie chicken, to hot dogs, chicken nuggets and burgers. They even have delicious strawberry yogurt for those looking for just a light snack.

There are three bays (individual counters) to help spread out the people that flock to this popular restaurant. Once you get your order, there is seating inside or outside, depending on what scenery your family is in the mood for, or what the weather will allow you.

But the reason Cosmic Ray's is my favorite is the value of one specific menu item, namely the 1/2 Chicken and BBQ Rib Combo. This dish is the highest priced item of all three bays, but the amount of food you get will easily feed two adults, or one adult and two children. There was even a time that it fed me, another adult, and a teen. This meal comes with the chicken and ribs, but also with mashed potatoes and vegetables. If you are on the dining plan, you may also add a drink (always make sure to ask for the large) and a dessert. Now that is A LOT of food!! But it is only offered on the dining plan for dinner, after 4:00pm, so make sure to plan your appetite accordingly.

So next time you are looking for great food in the Magic Kingdom, head over to Tomorrowland and Cosmic Ray's. Tell them Todd sent you. They probably won't know who I am, but it would still be fun to tell them. And you never know, I may be there too!
