We just tried Columbia Harbor House for the first time and really enjoyed it. Excited to read your reviews. This trip was so short and such a whirlwind, that I didn't even have time to really enjoy the food... besides Ohana's and Be Our Guest... and I felt very rushed at Ohana's this time and we were seated WELL after our reservation. It didn't change the food, but my experience there wasn't as I would normally expect.

I don't know if I would like that, I like to slow down and enjoy!

The Lunching Pad


We had a late dinner reservation, so another afternoon snack was needed! A Facebook friend (that I got to meet on this trip!) LOVES the Mickey Pretzels at Magic Kingdom, so it was on the list of things we needed to get! Josh and I shared a pretzel and cheese. SO YUMMY.







I know that the purists don’t like the cheese but I think it is really yummy! The pretzel was nice and chewy and there was plenty to share as a snack.
With a free cup of water this was a deal of a snack at just $5.64 including tax. We didn’t use a snack credit, we were saving those for bigger things!

Be Our Guest

Tonight’s dinner was booked before our trip was even booked. We were considering going down and I figured I should go ahead and book! We arrived early, and were told me could check in, but that there was no way we would be seated early, and that we would have to stay ON the bridge once we did. They recommended that we just relax until it was time to check in.

Once we did check in, we headed to the bridge to wait with all the other families hanging around.




The details in this area are just amazing. They put so much care into this area, it was crazy.












Josh, who is constantly teasing me for being on my phone was….




They ONLY thing that didn’t “fit” was this




I hope as they open more of the area they will remove this!

They did a fantastic job with crowd control here!




We waited a bit, but not too long, and our buzzer went off! We were welcomed to the castle, and I was asked to carry the candelabra as we were seated!




We walked through the doors, and I was just floored. It was like stepping into the movie.



We were seated at a VERY small table in the main ballroom. The room was beautiful, and so was the napkin rose!




The menu – The lighting in the restaurant was a little rough, most of these photos are not so great, sorry guys!













Our wonderful server Teri first brought us bread and salted butter.




I chose to enjoy a nice glass of something bubbly!




And Josh chose a beer.




To start we shared an order of muscles! “Mussels Provencal - with white wine, tomato, garlic, onion, basil and butter $10.99”




These were AMAZING. I love seafood, and from Maine, so I tend to be super picky (sorry not to sound snotty).




Josh and I both chose to enjoy the steak. “Grilled Strip Steak - with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites $29.99” I didn’t want the fries though, I really wanted to try the au gratin macaroni.




Teri, our sweet waitress said I could have the macaroni instead!




Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly. The only thing that I don’t like so much is how BIG they are. I mentioned in the opening that I am in the process of learning to eat correctly. One of the things I have struggled with the most is what is a portion, and I can tell you NO doubt this steak was at least three servings of meat. The garlic butter on top wasn’t amazing, but it was tasty. Josh’s steak had a bit of fat to it, but that is bound to happen.

The veggies were super yummy and I really enjoyed the macaroni! Josh tried the sauce for the fries on its own and wasn’t very impressed; however on the fries he LOVED it.

(Continued in next post due to too many photos!!!)

Teri explained how the dessert cart worked. She would bring it over, and we could make our selection. I chose the “Triple Chocolate Cupcake - chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse filling, and choclate ganache - $3.99”




I was given a spoon and she explained that the cupcakes are made for the beast who hates to get his paws dirty, so I should use a spoon and not try to remove the wrapper!

Josh chose the “Passion Fruit Cream Puff - filled with passion fruit mousse and topped with whipped cream - $3.99”




As Teri brought us back our card after paying, she also brought us something special. She said she knew I would appreciate this, as I had been so excited through the whole meal!



On our way out, we were sure to thank our wonderful host!






We also enjoyed the chatty suits of armor!









We would do dinner here again in a heart beat. The food was good, and it was like you stepped right into the movie!

The Sunshine Seasons Food Fair

We headed into an almost empty Seasons first thing in the morning.




I took a look around the bakery case
















Both Josh and I chose to enjoy the egg pork focaccia with potatoes




These were AMAZING. Seriously amazing. It was not the typical Disney breakfast. The meats, cheese and egg were perfectly balanced. The bread was nice and crunch on the outside and held the sandwich together really well.
The potatoes were perfectly seasoned, and one plate was more than enough for one of us. There is no description on Allears, and my receipt doesn’t have prices. Sorry!

With mine I got an iced mocha.




Perfect for a hot morning. Very refreshing, and extra caffeine!

The two of us shared a banana. Again expensive, however I got my serving of fruit!




This was the perfect breakfast. I hope that this is on the menu every time we go!

I thought for sure you had a breakfast full of sugary goodness I never knew sunshine seasons served breakfast. We went for lunch one day but they were swamped and wasn't worth the wait. Perhaps in September we'll grab some breakfast and then jump on soarin'!! I'm off to allears to checkout the menu for sunshine seasons!
