Any “Harbour” In A Storm? We Have A Magic Kingdom “Champion”!

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!

Columbia Harbour House

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?

Folks, welcome to the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Magic Kingdom Quick Service “competition”!  Cast your VOTES and crown a “champion”!

I present you with FOUR groups, below.  Your job today is to VOTE for your THREE favorite restaurants in each group.  In other words, you can cast as many as TWELVE votes in total today!

Upon the conclusion of today’s voting, the Top 3 restaurants in each group will advance to Round 2 of the “tournament”.  So, what do you think, everyone?  What are your favorites?

No Love For Turkey Legs?!

Or, is it no love for smoked meats?  About a day into our “smokin’ poll”, this comment, from one of our friends on Twitter, was quite an indictment …

“How can eight people vote ‘Neither’?!”

Actually, when all was finished, 33% of you elected to decline either “snack”.  I have to tell you, I threw the option, “Neither”, in at the last minute.  I never expected it to be so “popular”!

In the end, however, Gaston Tavern’s Pork Shank ruled the day(s) with 45% of your support.  Turkey legs never had a chance.

Although Gaston earned my vote as well, I’m a bit surprised by the outcome. First, WDW’s turkey legs live in infamy! They have their own t-shirts, for Pete’s sake!

Second, they can be found in every park. I was expecting the leg’s greater availability to plain out-number the pork’s popularity.

I think our WDW Main Street friend, Dennis Conroy, summed it up best … “The Pork Shank blows the Turkey Leg out of the water!”

Yes, Dennis. We all agree. It certainly does!
