Working at Cosmic Rays Starlight Café in the Magic Kingdom

Food Chef Christian!

Week 2 – Training at Cosmic Rays

Christian completed his food training this week at Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe.

While we initially thought he would be working FOH (Front of House) at Cosmic Rays, he actually was assigned HOH (Heart of House), which is all the food prep in the kitchen.

There’s a lot of crew working the kitchen, at least 16-20 people per shift.

Welcome to Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe.

It’s a busy kitchen as Cosmic Rays is the major quick service restaurant in Tomorrowland. They have it divided into food “bays” so they can serve a lot of guests at once.  The food lines move pretty quickly.  It’s typically open for lunch and dinner, usually 10am – 8pm.  Christian’s shifts this week have mostly been 2pm-9pm.

Bay 1: Chicken, chicken, chicken.
Bay 3: Sandwiches.

It was open yesterday for breakfast for EMH (Extra Magic Hours when the Magic Kingdom opens early for guests staying onsite), so he had to work a 7am – 3pm shift.

We’ve eaten there many times, it’s a good place for an early dinner.  Their burgers and chicken nuggets are tasty and the Toppings Bar is excellent.

They have a special menu for Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration.

Explore a galaxy of enticing options—from our out-of-this-world BBQ platter and chicken breast nuggets to bacon cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Customize your meal at the topping bar, then have a blast enjoying the stellar musical entertainment of Sonny Eclipse!

The Mickey Burger cheeseburger ($16) at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café!  This angus burger comes loaded with macaroni and cheese, American cheese, cheese sauce, flaming hot cheese dust, and bacon all served on a toasted Mickey Mouse bun.  It’s out of this world!
