Well, folks, it was a wild ride and a razor-close finish, but any “harbour” in a storm will do, eh? I just knew that this one was over before the “tournament” ever began.
You see, Magic Kingdom’s Columbia Harbour House just gets way too much love to lose. In fact, it won this very same poll the last time we ran it … back in 2014!
Congrats on the “repeat”, Columbia! You are the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Magic Kingdom Quick Service!
When it comes to our new (old?) champion, I have to admit that Mrs. All in WDW and I have tried way too little of their menu to make a fair appraisal of the restaurant’s “greatness”.
Honestly, we’ve only sampled their Fish and Chips! And, looking back at what I wrote back then, you’ll find that I said …
“When in Walt Disney World, whilst dreaming of perfectly battered, piping hot, incredibly flaky, crisply fried fish, you must … pick Yorkshire [County Fish Shop in Epcot]!”
In other words, I was left unimpressed with Columbia Harbour House’s offering. True, one plate of fish and chips does not a restaurant make, but that was my opinion, nonetheless.
Having said that, I know that I’m distinctly in the Disney minority. Anyway, with other attractive options like Grilled Salmon and Lobster Roll on Harbour’s menu, I know we haven’t given Columbia the fairest of shots.
Hey! Before I move on, how about that Dole Whip? Two years ago, Aloha Isle gave Columbia a run for its money, as well. Like I said in my post yesterday, it just goes to show you … doesn’t everyone love Dole Whip?
