Columbia Harbour House at Disney

August 21, 2012

The Columbia Harbour House is a quick service dining spot located at Magic Kingdom Park in Liberty Square.  Conveniently found right around the corner from The Hall of Presidents and across the path from the entrance to The Haunted Mansion.

This nautically themed restaurant is reminiscent of New England in the late 18th century.  The clapboard exterior and fieldstone siding makes you feel as if you are in Colonial America.  The interior has oak flooring, old-fashioned sconces and wainscoting.  There are nautical themed paintings located in all of the different dining areas.

Liberty Square

There are several dining areas inside with plenty of seating for everyone at the Columbia Harbour House.  One of our favorite spots is the upstairs area over the bridge between Liberty Square and Fantasyland.  It is quiet upstairs; most people don’t know there is an upstairs here. The view is wonderful.  It is a perfect spot to unwind while you enjoy a great meal.

 “Making Magic One Vacation at a Time…”

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Food

August 8, 2012

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Food is amazing!  The resort features two quick service restaurants, Tide Me Over at the resort and Signals at the beach house pool, but there is not a table service option available on property. The two quick service restaurants serve Mickey waffles and other breakfast items in the morning and basic sandwiches, burgers and salads in the afternoon and evening. At the beach house pool, there is also a bar that makes fabulous frozen alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. At the resort gift shop, you can also purchase Mickey ice cream bars and other ice cream treats, basic snacks like cookies and pretzels and drinks. If you eat all your meals on the resort property, you won’t ever go hungry, but you might get a bit bored.

Thankfully, the resort is in the middle of an island full of great restaurants and Disney has even arranged discounts with several. Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is right next to Shelter Cove Marina. You walk or ride your bike across a small foot bridge at the front of the resort and you are in Shelter Cove. There are several restaurants in the marina and many of them offer Disney guests a 10% discount, you just need to show your resort room key.

We personally tried Kingfisher, which is a steak and seafood restaurant, and San Miguel’s Mexican Cafe. Both restaurants had great offerings. Kingfisher is right next to the resort and featured a variety of seafood options, including several daily specials. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating. San Miguel’s was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to (and that includes several in Mexico). The menu boasts that the margaritas are the best in the state and I would have to agree. In fact, I think the margarita at San Miguel’s ruined other margaritas for me. The restaurant has indoor seating as well as outdoor. The outdoor seating is close to the bar, which often features live music. It is a very laid back atmosphere and a great location to end a day.
