Dinner at Columbia Harbour House
Columbia Harbour House, located in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, has been a long-time favorite quick service location for me. I don’t know what it is, but they have frying gluten free and allergy-friendly chicken tenders down to an art. And, so, I stopped by recently to grab a quick dinner — my favorite allergy-friendly chicken tenders.
Although I didn’t get very many photos on this visit, I absolutely adore the theme of Columbia Harbour House. With all of the nautical touches, you’d swear you were visiting a colonial New England seaside town.
The seating includes upstairs and downtairs options — all filled with dark wood and nautical touches everywhere you look. One of my favorite spots is upstairs in some of the corner rooms, where I can enjoy my meal and look out at the Disney guests below visiting the Magic Kingdom. It’s a really nice spot that not a lot of people know about too.
But, of course, the real reason I go to Columbia Harbour House is the food. The restaurant doesn’t have a really extensive Allergy-Friendly Lunch and Dinner Menu, but what it has is really good. I seriously don’t know what Columbia Harbour House does, but I swear their allergy-friendly chicken tenders are the best. They are literally the same brand at every location, but there’s something about how they fry them there that just works.
It is important to note that Columbia Harbour House, like any Disney-owned restaurant, takes cross-contamination seriously. They use a dedicated fryer only for allergy-friendly chicken tenders and fries, so you don’t have to worry about not having safe fried food.
On this visit, I ordered the chicken tenders, and I was surprised to see that it also came with green beans and carrots. The Allergy-Friendly Chicken Tenders, French Fries, and Vegetables are both gluten free and dairy free.
As you can tell by the photo, the portion I got was HUGE! So much food, and that made it a great value at around $9 and could easily be split by two people. One important thing to know is that if you have a fish/shellfish allergy, Columbia Harbour House does have a lot of fried seafood. And, the allergy-friendly menu actually discourages from anyone with a fish/shellfish allergy from eating there. With that in mind, we actually got Brandon (who is allergic to both fish & shellfish) food someplace else before I got allergy chicken tenders, just to be safe.
The allergy-friendly chicken tenders at Columbia Harbour House are a frequent meal option for me, especially when we’re in the Magic Kingdom. It’s easy to get, safe for me to eat, and delicious. Though their menu is pretty limited, you won’t miss the options when you can get these allergy-friendly chicken tenders!
