Attention All Earthlings, This is Sonny Eclipse

By Nick

On almost every trip to Walt Disney World we have at least one meal at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.

To be honest, there are several quick service eateries in the Magic Kingdom with better food, in our opinion.

So what brings us back time and again?
The "live" entertainment in the form of Sonny Eclipse.


Sonny, "The Biggest Little Star in the Galaxy" can be found daily in the Starlight Lounge at Cosmic Ray's.


He can be found there nightly too! In fact, it seems like the guy never leaves!



That is probably because Sonny is an audio-animatronic alien who has come all the way from his hometown of Yew Nork City on the planet Zork to entertain us on his Astro Organ, which sometimes plays all on it's own. He is accompanied by a group of invisible background singers, The Space Angels.

Sonny tells jokes in between his eclectic mix of song selections, which include such intergalactic classics as "Planetary Boogie" and "Gravity", which are entertaining and educational. The entire show is on a loop which lasts about 25 minutes.

Below is just a little introduction to Sonny.

If you are in Tomorrowland, stop in to Cosmic Ray's and check out Sonny's show. You may just wind up singing "Yew Nork, Yew Nork" the rest of the day instead of "Small World."
