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

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

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.

I hope they’ve started cooking them longer. Ever since I was a kid, in the 70s, we would usually eat there and the burgers were always VERY PINK in the middle to, sometimes, even cold.
As I got older, me and my friends had a thing where we’d scarf down one of those burgers, hit the tea cup ride, then hot 20,000 leagues and then repeat until somebody Blew chunks. Almost always happened on 20,000 leagues but, the most delightful times were when it would happen on the tea cups. It was ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS.
