New “Comfort Food” Dining Options at Columbia Harbor House, Contempo Cafe, ESPN Club, and Sassagoula Floatworks
Even when you’re in the Walt Disney World bubble, sometimes you crave the familiar, such as good old reliable comfort foods. Here’s a collection of some of the new comfort foods available at the Walt Disney World Resort and where to find them:
When I think of comfort food, the first thing that comes to mind is macaroni and cheese. At Columbia Harbor House in the Magic Kingdom, they’ve upped the ante at dinnertime by adding lobster and shrimp to their macaroni and cheese.
Also on the dinner menu is the piping hot chicken pot pie, filled with tender white-meat chicken, vegetables and gravy and topped with crunchy breadcrumbs.
Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers a beef pot roast with seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy, that’s available only at dinner.
Contempo Café also recently added some new flatbread pizzas to their menu, such as the smoked pulled pork flatbread, topped with barbecue sauce, Monterey Jack cheese and vegetable-style slaw.
ESPN Club at Disney’s BoardWalk features chicken and waffles with a kick—jalapeno-cornmeal waffles topped with buttermilk fried chicken and Angry Maple chicken gravy.
Brand new on the menu is a barbecue pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich served on thick-cut brioche. Reports are that it’s as good as it sounds.
Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is serving up four new loaded baked potato meals, each served with a side of soup or salad. Choose from a baked potato topped with one of the following: barbecued pork; broccoli, cheddar, and bacon; chili and cheese; or chicken, bacon, and cheddar. I have a feeling that whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong.
