December 9, 1994 – Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café Opens in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland
“A galaxy of choices!”
On December 9, 1994, the fast-food restaurant Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café opened in Tomorrowland of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. It replaced the Tomorrowland Terrace, which closed in September 1994. This quick service restaurant gives guests three “bays” to choose from in picking their meal: Bay 1 is chicken and BBQ pork sandwiches, Bay 2 is burgers and hot dogs (including a vegetarian burger), and Bay 3 is sandwiches, soups, and salads. Guests can choose to eat either indoors or outdoors; the restaurant also features an Audio-Animatronic alien entertainer named Sonny Eclipse.
