Burger to the Moon from Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

OPTION HAS BEEN REPLACED – Read about Patty Melt here

Well I finally worked up the courage to return to one of the quick service locations I avoid at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. This restaurant is located in Tomorrowland and the only reason I ever go in there is for the water refill station. But I decided it was time to try the newer vegan option here as it’s been a while since I gave this restaurant a chance.

The vegan options here over the years have been, well, less than thrilling. The new vegan option here is the Burger to the Moon which takes an updated approach to their previous plain Impossible Burger. This new burger is topped with guacamole, cabbage slaw, and tomato. It comes on a vegan brioche bun dusted with flour. The burger comes with a side of fries as well.

Going in I had pretty low expectations, as it IS Cosmic Ray’s. Those low expectations were met with this mediocre burger. Now I will say, the actual Impossible Burger itself was cooked really well and I enjoyed the flavor of that. My issues with this burger were in the toppings and the unnecessary flour on top.

Issue one was the flour. I get it for aesthetic moon purposes, but this got all over my hands. I don’t mind it when we’re talking about powdered sugar and delicious beignets, but not on a burger bun for me. Also the flour was so dry on the bun which was not a great mouth feel.

The second issue was the toppings. The slaw added nothing if not just a very mild crunchy texture, but there wasn’t enough to really notice it. The guacamole on it had that very distinct pre-packaged guacamole tang that I can never seem to get past. If this was fresh guacamole and maybe a creamy sauce of some sort I think this would be a lot better.


If I were to eat here again I would request the burger to be plain and just add classic burger toppings. I am all for “fun” toppings on burgers, but I can’t hang with that guacamole flavor. At least the fries were good, and of course the entertainment of Sonny Eclipse.

Back in 2014 I created Vegan Disney World after going to Walt Disney World several times and finding no resource for vegan options. Corey and I began this blog from our trips and have now moved closer to the mouse to eat around the parks on a weekly basis. Since the blog started we have cruised on Disney Cruise Line, gone to Tokyo Disneyland and to Disneyland in California!
