Why EVERYONE Should Give Magic Kingdom’s New Plant-Based Meal A Try

We’re in Magic Kingdom ready to bring you another food review!

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Magic Kingdom

We recently tried a chicken sandwich from Cosmic Ray’s that didn’t blow our socks off, but now we’re heading back for another meal! Disney World does have vegan and plant-based options, but sometimes they can be hard to find or not very good. Which is why whenever we find one, we want to tell you about it right away — come with us to try a new plant-based offering at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe!

The Patty Melt is a plant-based burger with vegan cheese and coleslaw on top, sandwiched between two pieces of toasted bread and with fries as a side for $12.79.

Patty Melt

Our reporter is a plant-based eater and they really loved this burger! The patty was seasoned very well and tasted like a Jimmy Dean sausage. All the elements of the sandwich work really well together. We loved that there was a butter taste to the bread and that the slaw is dressed with a zesty thousand island dressing that has a little kick. Plus, you get a generous amount of delicious fries!


The only warning we will give is that the cheese, since it’s vegan, isn’t what you would normally expect on a burger. It doesn’t melt too well, and the texture may be off to some, but our reporter didn’t mind.

We say this is a hit!

We honestly think anyone would like this burger, not only those who have vegan or plant-based diets! If you don’t like a lot of seasoning, then the patty and coleslaw may be a little too much for you, but otherwise, we say run to get this right now.
