French Fry Diary 164: Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café

This is set right between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland in Disney's Magic Kingdom, and serves as not only one of the easier counter service restaurants, but also as fun and mostly unknown Disney show and a great place to take a load off and relax. You're treated to a lounge act by an alien while you eat, and that lounge lizard is the animatronic Sonny Eclipse. Imagine Richard Cheese as a cartoon doing originals and telling jokes.

The food is of the standard American fast food type, and the French fries appear at first to be the Disney standard, but not quite. Yes, they are natural cuts, but slightly skinnier (but not shoestring skinny) and much crispier. There's a good golden brown crunch to these babies, at least when they're made right.

It's an enjoyable show, lots of puns and lots of good electronic jazzy sounds, and as I said, good to get off your feet on a busy hot day at the park. Also, if you get the right seat, you can see where the characters come out for meet and greets and get a head start on everyone else. Check it out.
