REVIEW: Mickey Burger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe, Magic Kingdom

Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at the Magic Kingdom has begun, bringing with it an assortment of food, merchandising, and events. Over at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland, you’ll find a Mickey Cheeseburger.

Mickey Cheeseburger – $15.97

With Mickey himself branded on the top of a buttered bun, this burger is topped with macaroni and cheese, American cheese, cheese sauce, and spicy cheese dust. So yeah…it’s cheesy and, oddly enough, not terrible. While certainly a mess (a fork is more than just a suggestion here), the cheese sauce is not heavy and so it all goes down rather easily. One suggestion would be to flip over the top bun and add some mac and cheese to it. This cut down on overall thickness of the burger, providing more manageable bites.

One missed opportunity is the cheese dust, which is all for aesthetics. While one might hope it would add some spice to the palate, it adds no flavor at all.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
