Everyone has their own idea of comfort food. For many, it’s a family recipe that they grew up with. For others, it could be something farther from that. Goodness knows how many times this German/Russian simply craves a HUGE bowl of udon or ramen over sauerbraten or pierogi! (I basically never have a craving for sauerbraten, though…)
Anyway, Disney Parks Blog is sharing their favorite comfort foods around property! Columbia Harbour House is one of Matt’s favorites, and I’ve grown fond of them since he truly introduced me to the restaurant.
During dinner, Columbia Harbour House serves both a Seafood Macaroni & Cheese, featuring lobster and shrimp, and Chicken Pot Pie, featuring white-meat chicken, vegetables and gravy, topped with breadcrumbs. Chicken Pot Pie is one of our favorites, so we might have to go give it a try during one of these chilly nights we’re having!

At Contempo Cafe, one of the fast spots I enjoy, you can find Beef Pot Roast with Seasonal Vegetables, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. Matt might insist on this one! It’s only available at dinner, so be sure to plan ahead! The restaurant has also added new flatbreads to their menu including a Smoked Pulled Pork Flatbread with Barbecue Sauce, Monterey Jack and Vegetable Slaw.

Matt and I are big fans of ESPN Club at the BoardWalk, because we are gluttons for punishment (our teams our killing us). They are offering Chicken and Waffles featuring Jalapeno-Cornmeal Waffles topped with Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Angry Maple Chicken Gravy. Matt just doesn’t get the whole chicken and waffles thing, but I liked ESPN’s rendition. They’re also serving a Barbecue Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwich served on Thick-cut Brioche.
ESPN does a nice rendition of Chicken and Waffles. Sure, it’s not “traditional” when it comes to the dish, but it’s worth a look.
And if Matt doesn’t order the Barbecue Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwich next visit, I might.
Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory at Port Orleans Resort French Quarter has new loaded baked potatoes, served with a side of soup or salad, that I can’t wait to try. These sound fantastic: barbecued pork; broccoli, cheddar, and bacon; chili and cheese; or chicken, bacon, and cheddar. I think Matt and I need to pay a visit soon!
Looking for sweet? Head to Kusafiri Bakery at Animal Kingdom for a Colossal Mickey-shaped Cinnamon Roll!
I’m so glad the weather is cooling off down here in Central Florida! I can’t wait to enjoy some of these favorites on property and recreate them at home. Which ones would make your ideal menu?
