Sonny Eclipse Is Back at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
One of our favorite loveable aliens is back in Tomorrowland! Our MickeyBlogger was on the scene at Magic Kingdom today and was delighted to see Sonny dazzling the guests at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe!
Sonny went on a bit of hiatus but he’s back and as good as new. With his 27-minute set, Sonny provides the perfect way to pass the time while tucking into some of the amazing quick service options at this popular Tomorrowland eatery. So let him entertain you and in the meantime, we’ll help with some awesome facts about Sonny!

If you think the instrument Sonny is playing looks pretty “far out” you would be right! The glowing keyboard-like instrument he plays is known as the “Astro-Organ!
Sonny Hails From Yew Nork City on the Planet Zork
We love a good bit of Sonny Eclipse banter. If you listen closely he tells you a little bit about his home planet and the “topsy-turvy town” where the subways are up and the streets are down!
All Sonny’s Songs Are Original
No cover tunes here! Sonny’s set is made up of 8 completely original songs. With awesome titles like “Planetary Boogie,” “Bright Little Star,” “Space Angles” and “Gravity Blues” you know that you’re in for a show that is simply out-of-this-world! All of the songs were actually created specifically for Sonny by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with George Wilkens. Wilkens also wrote and arranged music for the Food Rocks attraction at EPCOT and the “Honey, I Shrunk The Audience” pre-show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Sonny Definitely Has a Sense of Humor
Sonny incorporates jokes into his act and along the same lines as the Jungle Cruise – the cornier the better. (You know, I recently heard the universe was expanding. Guess its time to loosen the asteroid belt!”
Sonny Has Three Backup Singers
Sonny is backed-up by a mysterious and invisible trio of singers known simple as the Space Angels!
