Columbia Harbour House Still Behind Scrim as Refurbishment Continues

Columbia Harbour House Refurbishment Continues

Visitors to Magic Kingdom may have recently noticed that Columbia Harbour House, one of the park’s iconic dining spots, has been undergoing some noticeable changes. The quaint restaurant, which is situated between Fantasyland and Liberty Square, is currently cloaked in construction scrim and scaffolding, signaling a significant refurbishment effort.

Construction began in September with scrim covering the side of Columbia Harbour House facing Fantasyland. This month, more construction barriers were added, extending from the Peter Pan’s Flight building to the restaurant’s doors. Past these doors, another wall directs guests towards a bridge near Memento Mori. The refurbishment appears to be aimed at updating the exterior facade of the building.

Despite the ongoing exterior refurbishments, hungry guests can still enjoy the restaurant’s offerings. Columbia Harbour House continues to welcome diners between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. on most days. However, if you’re planning a visit during the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party event nights, do note that the restaurant wraps up its services earlier, at 4:45 p.m.

The menu at Columbia Harbour House boasts New England-inspired dishes, including a creamy Lobster Roll and mouth-watering New England Shrimp Boil. If you’re in the mood for sides that go beyond the usual French fries, the restaurant offers clam chowder, crisp green beans, delicious hushpuppies, and rice.
