When I think of food at Walt Disney World, my mind hardly ever goes to Magic Kingdom except to think about the coveted Dole Whip! I tend to dream and salivate about Ohana, and the Tusker House breakfast until I tried something at the Columbia Harbour House that changed the way I viewed dining at the MK!
I didn’t eat at the Colombia Harbour House until about 4 trips ago, and I am hooked! The Columbia Harbour House is located in Liberty Square close to the Hall of Presidents and across the street from the Haunted Mansion. Before I had actually entered the Columbia Harbour House, I always thought it was probably small and crowded but I was wrong. This place is good sized in the inside with plenty of seating with an upstairs too! I have never experienced this place to be super busy, although there has always been a line! I have not had a problem finding a place to sit. I love how cool the Columbia Harbour House feels on a hot Florida day, it is really refreshing! Something else I really like about eating here is that there are a lot of outlets by the tables against the wall, and while I don’t know if we are supposed to use them I always plug my iPhone in while dining here!
The Columbia Harbour House is on the Disney Disney Plan as a counter service. With the counter service here you get one drink, one entree with side item and dessert! Something else I like about the Columbia Harbour House is that the portions are generous and you feel like you are getting your money/credits worth! While there are plenty of items on the menu there is only 1 that I need to share with you! Next time you visit you need to order the Fried Shrimp basket… it tastes so good! I always get mine with french fries on the side and a warm and tasty apple crisp! In the basket there are about 9 large fried shrimp, it is a huge serving! The shrimp are not greasy either, they are great! The shrimp basket with a side item will run you about $9.99, but if you are not on the dining plan and concerned about cost I think the platter is big enough to share!
The shrimp basket at the Columbia Harbour House put the Magic Kingdom back on the food map for me and I hope you will give it a try too! Have you already had the shrimp platter, did you love it? We would love to hear from you in the comments below or on our facebook page HERE!
