    Anyone tried....Pinocchio Village Haus? My girls ask everytime we get on IASW about why there are people up there because of course they wave at you. Just wondering if the food is good there so that my girls could be the ones waving.

    The menu looks decent but I've never actually at there for a first hand experience.

    This used to be one of our favorites before they changed the menu in late 2009. They had an Italian Panini that was really good, but they don't any more. Now the menu just seems to have Pizza, Chicken strips and Salad, none of which appeals to us, so, we haven't been back.

    Our favorites are Pecos Bill's and Columbia Harbor House, both on the west side of MK.

    I've heard they recently renamed El Pirata y el Perico to Tortuga Tavern, right across from Pirates of the Carribean, and are currently offering the same or a very similar menu. Here's the menu link. We have never tried it, but might on our next visit.

    As a vegetarian I would cast my vote for the Columbia Harbor House. They have a really good vegetarian sandwich.

    I'm not a picky eater but have to say I hate the veggie burger at Cosmic Rays. It's just very rubbery. When we eat there I always end up getting a salad, which is OK.

    Cosmic Rays is great, my kids loved it last year we ate there twice I think. Dh and ds split entrees even chicken and ribs it was large enough. We also have always liked the Columbia Harbor House we eat there every trip too.

    We love Pecos Bills,I think we eat there on every trip. We also enjoy the Columbia harbour House.

    No problem brining in food/drinks. We used to pack a small backpack with a couple frozen bottles of water to keep the others cold, several capri sun juice packs for the kids, crackers, fruit snacks and sandwiches.

    Good to know, we are going to be there when it is very hot and brininging bottled waters in will be more cost effective that buying 4 waters every other hour to stay hydrated.

    We always bring in bottled water and some snack bars. I think they are more worried about hard coolers and glass bottles than anything else.

    Columbia House just outside of Fantasyland on the way to the Haunted Mansion. It's on the left. Good food, wide selection...plus food an adult would want to consume.

    Wow! What great responses! I think I am leaning toward Columbia Harbor House as I really like a quieter atmosphere - but logistically if we are in Tomorrowland I will keep Cosmic Ray's in mind. I really appreciate all the Disney minds on here!

    Another vote for Columbia Harbour House here. It's my family's favorite Magic Kingdom counter service restaurant both for the food and setting. Cosmic Ray's always feels overwhelmingly crowded whenever I'm there. We never have trouble finding a table at Columbia Harbour House, and the place seems quieter and calmer.

    My favorite : Harbor House. It has all of the typical things kids like - chicken tenders, etc. but their hummus sandwich is vegetarian and it's REALLY good and DH and I got HUGE servings and we could barely finish our food when we were there last. They also give you chips with the hummus sandwich

    warning: noodle terrace is the worst CS in all of disney world. IMO.
    Next trip - Sep29-Oct4! Free QS dining at POP. First trip with both kids. (6th total visit)

    i agree with jared about cosmic rays. I'm pretty sure i will not ever go back there when it is typical 'meal times'

    i also agree with his comment on seating at harbor house. When we went for lunch we probably went just a little earlier than everyone and we sat upstairs and it was really quiet and relaxed. we lovveed it.

    Columbia Harbor House is a good counter service option in the Magic Kingdom.
    I agree. There is plenty of different foods for picky eaters and there are also some non-meat items.

    I can't really add anything new to the discussion. Harbor House would probably be my first suggestion as well for you.

    Frozen water bottles work great. As they thaw the water stays plenty cold and tastes wonderful. Snacks are great too, as they can keep the kids happy while not destroying a budget.
