REVIEW: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe Holiday Offerings, The Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

For the 2017 holiday season, many Magic Kingdom restaurants are offering some special holiday fare, so we decided to check out the rather interesting offerings at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland…

The Bah Humburger ($13.99)

Char-grilled Angus Cheeseburger topped with Turkey and Cornbread Stuffing and our Signature Cranberry Scrooge Sauce on a Brioche Bun, served with French Fries or Green Beans.

If these toppings were placed on a burger that wasn’t served at a Magic Kingdom counter service restaurant, I think it would be quite good, but the problem here is where it was made. This is a good idea, and the turkey, cornbread stuffing, and cranberry sauce (which is thankfully not very bold and just adds a hint of cranberry flavor) were all enjoyable, but the hamburger underneath had no taste whatsoever.

Fa la la Fondant Fries ($4.29)

Dusted with Cinnamon Sugar and drizzled with a Holiday Colored Fondant.

These sounded weird and gross, so I immediately knew that I had to review them. Let’s be honest, you clicked this review to see what was going on with these french fries. So… these aren’t bad. It’s surprising how well icing and cinnamon sugar goes with fries (although fries historically go well with sweets). The one thing I will say is eat them while they are as hot as possible, because once the fries cool down, the flavor loses a lot of its charm and you start to realize that YOU ARE EATING COLD FRENCH FRIES WITH ICING ON THEM.

Wow, at least they’re trying! Maybe a churro or cinnamon bun flavored fry (with cinnamon sugar and sweet white icing) would go better. The burger just looks huge, it might work better as a panini type sandwich, without the burger patty.
