Magic Kingdom Food Updates

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

Cosmic Ray’s in Tomorrowland has a new burger — the Triple B Burger. It’s made with an Angus beef patty with bacon, cheddar spread, crispy onions, and Coca-Cola Cherry barbecue sauce on a brioche bun, served with a side of french fries.

That’s a big burger!

We thought the burger was pretty good! That barbecue sauce adds a hint of sweetness, and we enjoyed the cheddar spread as well. You can get it now for $12.99.

See our full review of the Triple B Burger here.

Storybook Treats

Over at Storybook Treats in Fantasyland, we found the last Seven Dwarfs cone! The set of 7 different cones is finally complete, now that we’ve tried the Sleepy Cone.

Sleepy was the last of the Seven Dwarfs Specialty Cones to be released in Magic Kingdom.

This cone is Blue Cotton Candy and Vanilla Soft-Serve in an orange cone, with a chocolate belt buckle and a chocolate Sleepy face. You can get it now for $6.29.
