Finding a good burger at Magic Kingdom is actually harder than you may think.
This list will tell you about all of the best burgers at Magic Kingdom, along with where to find them.
Ranking Magic Kingdom’s Best Burgers
#1 The Plaza Burger at the Plaza Restaurant
A good burger is often a simple burger. But what about a simple burger kicked up to ten with some savory ingredients? That’s the Plaza Burger, our first choice.
Why we like it: It has all the necessary ingredients for a good burger, with an extra dose of unique ingredients. It comes on a brioche bun and is topped with Honey-Barbecued Beef Brisket, Cheddar, Lettuce and Tomato. You can also add extras, including bacon, your choice of cheese, grilled mushrooms, or grilled onions.
The side: French fries, homemade potato chips, or a vegetable side comes on the side.
Where to get it: This burger is found at the Plaza Restaurant. The restaurant is located at the end of Main Street USA, right next to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.
This is one of the few locations on our burger list that require a reservation, so make sure to book a table in advance. If you wait until the day of, it’s likely that you won’t find an open reservation at the time you’d like, or at all.
The Plaza is a charming restaurant that has Disney’s famous Main Street, U.S.A. styling. A meal at The Plaza is a great way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of a day at the Magic Kingdom.
The Verdict: Magic Kingdom has a surprising shortage of good burgers and the Plaza Burger is a reliable choice. It’s a great selection for a kicked-up burger that will certainly satisfy your burger craving when you’re inside the park.

#2 Mickey Cheeseburger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
This one is another unique option introduced for Mickey’s 90th Birthday celebration in 2019. It’s a great choice located at a easy in-and-out quick service location, sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Why we like it: This one has a flame-broiled 1/3 lb Angus Burger topped with Macaroni and Cheese, American Cheese, Cheese Sauce, Flaming Hot Cheese Dust and Bacon on a Mickey Mouse bun. The beauty is really found in the sheer amount of cheese on this burger. We’re thinking Mickey Mouse’s favorite food is cheese *wink wink*.
The side: French fries are the side of choice for the Mickey’s Cheeseburger.
Where to get it: Mickey’s Cheeseburger is served exclusively at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in the Tomorrowland section of the park. Cosmic Ray’s is one of the most unique quick-service restaurants at Magic Kingdom and mobile ordering is available through the My Disney Experience app.
Its defining attribute is Sonny Eclipse, an audio-animatronic alien. Sonny sits on a stage in the restaurant and plays jazz music on his Astro-Organ. Having the built-in animatronic entertainment is a cool touch, especially for a quick-service restaurant.
The Verdict: It’s been a common thing for guests to be a bit dissatisfied with the burger options available at Magic Kingdom. That’s why Mickey’s Cheeseburger was such a welcome addition. It brings a more unique burger to give park-goers a cool option that isn’t a typical, run-of-the-mill cheeseburger. It’s not a gourmet item, but it will definitely help you get to your daily quota of beef, cheese, and bacon.
#3 The BELL Burger at the Liberty Tree Tavern
This burger is a great new addition to the Liberty Tree Tavern appealing to lovers of lobster. It’s only served during lunchtime, so don’t expect to order this one for dinner.
Why we like it: The BELL Burger is named for the Liberty Bell – replica can be seen in Liberty Square outside the restaurant. This burger features Applewood-Smoked Bacon, Cheddar, Poached Eggs, Lettuce and Lobster – a really interesting and delicious combo you won’t find anywhere else.
The side: The BELL Burger is served with a side of French Fries.
Where to get it: You can order this one at the Liberty Tree Tavern in the Liberty Square section of Magic Kingdom.
Liberty Tree Tavern is one of our absolute favorite restaurants at Magic Kingdom. The building is a picture-perfect replica of an old colonial American building.
The wait staff also joins in on the fun, all of them being dressed in typical colonial clothing. Liberty Tree Tavern is a table-service restaurant, meaning that you’ll need to make a reservation to dine there.
It’s a popular one, so make sure to book your table well in advance.
The Verdict: Even though this burger is only served for a table-service lunch, it’s definitely better than the quick-service burgers. Kids and adults will both enjoy the colonial theme and it’s a nice place to escape from the hectic park.
#4 Bacon Cheeseburger at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
A classic bacon cheeseburger in a quick-service, Southwest setting.
Why we like it: If you’re sensing a theme of burgers at Magic Kingdom, it’s because most are just that: simple. Pecos Bill’s Bacon Cheeseburger is a normal quick-service burger with bacon and cheese.
The side: The side is what separates this burger from many others. Rather than fries or potato chips, the Pecos Bill Bacon Cheeseburger comes with a side of tortilla chips. Nothing crazy, but it’s nice to have the option of a side besides french fries.
Where to get it: You’ll find this burger at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in the Frontierland section of the park. It’s situated on the corner, right where Adventureland connects to Frontierland. It’s easy to walk right past without noticing it, so keep an eye out.
If you’re not sure where to find it, just walk over to Splash Mountain’s splash zone and look to the other side of the pathway. Pecos Bills’ restaurant is styled to resemble an Old West saloon.
The Verdict: It may be the most boring burger on our list, but it’s still a good choice for a simple quick-service burger at Magic Kingdom. The tortilla chips make for a nice change from french fries or potato chips.
BONUS: Plant-based Southwest Burger at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
Craving a burger, but living the Vegan lifestyle? Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe has what you’re looking for. Try the Plant-based Southwest Burger, featuring Vegan Jalapeno Jack and Vegan Avocado Aioli on a toasted bun with a side of tortilla chips.
