5 Things You Will Love About Columbia Harbour House at Walt Disney World

The Magic Kingdom is home to many different dining options throughout its six lands. While some guests might think that these options only include the traditional theme park offerings like burgers, chicken fingers, and fries, they are pleasantly surprised when they find out that each dining location offers up unique fare including seafood, traditional French options, and even flatbread pizzas. One of the most unique and delicious places to eat in the Magic Kingdom is the Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square. With a distinctly nautical theme, guests are drawn into the quick service dining location for lunch and dinner by a Cast Member in traditional garb standing outside the main entrance ringing a bell to signify that it is time to eat. Let’s check out five things that you will love about Columbia Harbour House!

5. Hidden Bathroom

Also located on the upstairs level is a small bathroom tucked away in the corner. So many people don’t even notice the bathroom, leaving it usually empty or with a short line. This bathroom is great to keep in mind while in Liberty Square as the other closest bathroom option is the Tangled area which can be a hike if a guests is over near the Hall of Presidents! Combine the hidden bathroom with the delicious food and nautical décor and it is easy to see why Columbia Harbour House is so great!

4. Upstairs Seating

Many guests tend to grab their trays of food after ordering and head to a nearby table to sit and eat without even realizing that the restaurant has an upstairs! The upstairs seating is quieter, always less crowded, and offers up some great views. Try to sit at a table next to a window for views down into Liberty Square to people watch and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Rivers of America.

3. Cobbler

With the main course being so unique and extensive, it should come as no surprise that Columbia Harbour House doesn’t mess around with its dessert options. Guests can order Boston Cream Pie or a lighter option of Greek Yogurt, but there is one option exclusive to this location. Columbia Harbour House serves up a seasonal cobbler for dessert that is outrageously good! Depending on the season, the cobbler usually features blueberries, peaches, or apples as the star component of the dish. The fruits are surrounded by a baked crust that is coated in sugar and topped with a vanilla sauce. With the sweetness from the fruit and sugar coated crust and the richness of the vanilla, the seasonal cobbler at Columbia Harbour House is one of the best desserts in the Magic Kingdom and worth a try!

2. Exclusive Food Options

With a nautical theme, it should come as no surprise that Columbia Harbour House’s menu heavily features seafood options that are unique to that location and cannot be found anywhere else in the Magic Kingdom. Fresh seafood entrees include items such as a Land and Sea Trio, Lobster Roll, Grilled Salmon, Tuna Sandwich, and Shrimp Wedge Salad. Seafood lovers can also ordered a side portion of creamy New England Clam Chowder. While the seafood is the main attraction at Columbia Harbour House, guests who are not fans of fish also have plenty of options to choose from including a Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Breast Nuggets, a Wedge Salad, and a Vegetarian Chili. Kids can enjoy a Tuna Sandwich, Chicken Breast Nuggets, Macaroni and Cheese, or a Garden Salad with Chicken. No matter what guests choose to order off of the unique menu at Columbia Harbour House, the meal is sure to be fresh and delicious every time.

1. The Nautical Décor

Once guests step foot inside Columbia Harbour House, they will immediately feel as though they are at sea as the décor heavily reflects a nautical theme. The walls, beams, and ceilings of the restaurant are dark wood paneling to reflect the inside of a ship. Props and art work scattered throughout the restaurant include massive ship wheels, heavy rope tied in intricate knots, artwork featuring ships, oceans, and nautical maps, and sculptures that look as though they once belonged on the mast of a grand ship. After finishing eating, be sure to wander throughout the entire restaurant to check out the unique and nautical décor!
