darthmaz314 Disney Hidden Gems: Sonny Eclipse at Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe

Today, introduces another recurring series of posts, this one entitled "Disney Hidden Gems." Some of the best things about Walt Disney World are the small details and hidden gems. These things are not always the top shelf thrill rides or blockbuster attractions. They can even be things that do not scream "Disney." Often they are details that remind people of their first special memories or experiences at Walt Disney World. 

For those who do become repeat Disney visitors, these hidden gems are often things that make them feel "at home at Disney." They are familiar, constant, and nostalgic. They can be something as small as a particular food item, a favorite merchandise shop, a certain special spot in a park where they take a photo during each visit, a character that they absolutely must meet every time, or even a personal tradition that someone initiates and keeps going with family or friends. (By the way, these are some of the things that make people return to Walt Disney World over and over. But that is a topic for another post.)

Today we introduce this series of posts with a modern classic hidden gem...Sonny Eclipse at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe in the Magic Kingdom. Sonny Eclipse is a fairly elaborate audio animatronic that "holds court" over the Magic Kingdom's largest "food court." After you have purchased your food at Cosmic Ray's, a popular quick service location at Magic Kingdom, if you choose to sit in the largest seating area, you will be entertained by the dulcet tones and poor jokes of lounge singer Sonny Eclipse from the planet Zoo Nork and his back-up singers the invisible Space Angels. Sonny is a great example of elaborate theming, an element that seeks to immerse you in the story Disney is attempting to tell you. In this particular case, you are in Tomorrowland, a futuristic setting, eating in Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, and are being entertained by an alien named Sonny Eclipse who just happens to have invisible celestial back-up singers called the Space Angels. I think you get the picture.

So darthmaz314 invites you to experience a true hidden gem from the Magic Kingdom by enjoying a tune that Sonny dedicates to his heavenly back-up singers, entitled (big surprise) Space Angels.
