We stopped here to feed the group of kids we were with and I opted to try a bacon cheeseburger. It was definitely a rubbery Udi's-type bun, but nice that they had an option for Celiacs. They're very generous with the bacon--my burger must have had 8 pieces on it!--so my partner had a nice appetizer of a bunch of the strips of bacon while he waited for his meal to be prepared lol. I ended up just eating the burger patty, bacon, and toppings after a few bites of the bun--it wasn't for me. The fries were cooked well though and my food came out on the purple allergy tray and had an allergy toothpick in the burger bun. The kids loved the burgers, mac & cheese, and chicken strips, and I didn't have any reaction afterward, so it was a win for that meal. :-)

I was thoroughly impressed with their separate kitchen, dedicated fryer and solid fast food. This isn’t gourmet, but it’s good fast food that you know is safe. I had the bacon cheeseburger and the GF bun actually stayed together. The fries were solid. Just needed a little salt.

was a quick and easy option for MK. the person taking my order was knowledgeable and told me fries were also GF, cooked in a separate frier. i was so shocked that i asked the manager and it is true. food came out marked and tasted decent. fries were super good, bun was fine, burger was meh. but i felt super safe so i’m giving 5 star. food also came out seperate!

Stopped in for a quick dinner and wasn’t disappointed. Had the bacon burger and the bun was delicious- chewy (in a good way) instead of crumbly and huge like others. Fries were tasty. Everything was labeled allergy. Would go here if you’re looking for a fast bite!

This was a quick but successful experience! We needed GF mac and cheese, and Columbia Harbor House no longer has it on their allergy menu. I looked at menus for quick service restaurants on the Disney app and found that Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe offered GF mac and cheese. Day saved! I did the mobile order and felt good about the handling since a manager delivered the food to the counter. My daughter absolutely loved the mac. Would for sure get it again!

Ray’s is a fast diner food spot in Tomorrowland that is very convenient and does really well with allergies. It’s definitely fast food burgers and fries, but it’s several steps up from McDonald’s, faster for allergy orders than some of the other spots around DW, and really, really hit the spot for me on a type of fast food I hadn’t been able to eat in so long. If you have time, ordering in person guarantees you an allergy chef order. Also, small thing, but I found the buns here to taste a lot more “normal” than some of the other gf buns around the park, which was a bonus!

CELIACS REJOICE!!!

They have dedicated cooking team for allergies. We ordered two bacon burgers with gluten free buns along with fries. Fries are cooked in separate fryer so no cross contamination. An allergy team member brought our food on a separate green plate, non allergy orders use brown plates to help reduce confusion at time of delivery.

Food was great!

The staff at the Cafe are still Disney cast members - knowledgeable, helpful, and absolutely, wonderfully unashamed to ask and clarify before serving you. HOWEVER, gluten-free options are not available via mobile order, and we were required to mobile order this time (January 2021). This meant we stood in line to get our order and tried to catch them before it was made. I’m sure there’s a way to get around that, but I couldn’t figure it out! My advice: find a cast member near the restaurant before placing your order if you encounter the same issue. Overall this was a great meal outdoors! Oh, and their “pixie dust” is tangerines (maybe clementines, I honestly don’t know the difference), so be aware if you have citrus allergies!

Absolute home run! Ate here 2x and had no issues with a burger and fries a gluten allergy dream. Make sure you tell a cashier that you have an allergy and they will use trained staff to seperate your order. They will as others have said put it on a Brown Tray clearly marked Allergy. It will take longer but Cosmic Rays really goes out of the way to make you comfortable!

I had the baked quarter chicken with green beans. This is only available after 4pm. It was cooked perfect, and the beans were fresh and hot. The food at this quick serve came out very quickly even though they had to prepare it in the allergy area of the back. It was a perfect meal after walking at the parks all day.

Are here two days in a row for lunch. We had 6 people in our group (2 celiac) so it is easier to all eat gf. This is an extremely safe option. We discussed with the manager our needs and he ensured us that we would have a great experience. They have a dedicated area with employees that are trained about food allergies. They have a separate fryer for the fries and have great gf buns for the hot dogs, burgers and chicken sandwiches. It takes 5-10 minutes longer l, but it is worth the wait knowing that your dietary requirements are being handled properly. The team member that is in the dedicated space will bring the food out on green trays. Can’t speak highly enough about how Disney is with gluten free!

They have a separate allergy menu at the registers, just ask. All GF food is made in a separate location from the other food and is placed on a green tray to indicate a food allergy. As far as condiments, there is a small section in the center that has packaged mustard and ketchup, but I wouldn’t use the condiments station that everyone uses.
