Dinner at Columbia Harbour House
Columbia Harbour House, located in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, is one of my go-to quick service spots in the park. Though it’s allergy-friendly lunch and dinner menu is somewhat limited for guests with special dietary needs, they serve allergy-friendly chicken tenders there — one of my favorite quick service meal options. On this occasion, we stopped by for a quick dinner in between some fastpasses on a random weeknight in the park.
Columbia Harbour House has a ton of charm and lots of great theming. Set to resemble a sea-side Colonial New England town, you’ll see lots of colonial decor, along with sea-faring art and collectibles. You’ll find lots to look at in every nook and cranny of the restaurant.
My favorite spot to dine is on the 2nd floor. A lot of guests don’t know it exists, but it’s a perfect spot to rest, recharge, and refuel with some allergy-friendly chicken tenders.
On the night we visited, it was a bit later in the evening, so the 2nd floor was closed. Still, we found lots of seating on the main floor and even tucked away in a quiet side room.
Although there are some other gluten free and dairy free meal options, I have to order allergy-friendly chicken tenders whenever I dine at Columbia Harbour House. Even though these are the same allergy-friendly chicken tenders you can get a variety of locations at Disney, for some reason they taste best at Columbia Harbour House. Maybe it’s because they have frying down to an art?
Both Brandon and I ordered allergy-friendly chicken tenders. Brandon actually prefers these over the regular chicken tenders, if you can believe it. So, he’s taken to ordering these, as well. We got 2 orders — 1 with French Fries, Green Beans, and Carrots, and 1 with a double order of French Fries.
As you can see from the photo, we had huge portions. The amount of food we both got was way more than we expected. And, we both joked that we could have easily split one meal. Each of us got about 6 allergy-friendly chicken tenders and a huge heaping of fries. I also got the green beans and carrots, which comes with the meal normally (Brandon asked for Double Fries, as he isn’t a fan of green beans). The green beans and carrots were pretty bland, but everything else was delicious.
I have also started getting a package of Ken’s Steak House Cocktail Sauce with my meal. Ken’s dressings are marked gluten free. These sauces are not shelved in the main dining area, but are stored in the kitchen area. So be sure to ask a manager if you want a container of this.
We absolutely loved our meal. At around $10.99 a piece, this is a huge value. Between the large portions and terrific taste, this is definitely a spot we continue to have as our go-to for a quick service dinner at the Magic Kingdom. We always enjoy the chicken tenders and never leave hungry!
