More info from Buzz:

Pepper Market will still be a counter service location for all three meals. Breakfast and lunch will be buffet, while dinner will be a la carte. Maya Grill will not be serving breakfast after the PM conversion, but it will receive a new dinner menu in late December/early January.

Today I switched my May ressie from POR to CSR and have read through all the pages this afternoon.

Thanks to everyone for all of the great information! I am so excited to learn some more about this awesome resort.

They are both great resorts. At one time POR was my favorite. But CSR has won my heart back. I hope you will enjoy CSR every bit as much as I have!

Thanks! I'm always excited to have the luxury of bringing my kids (and myself!) to Disney and CSR looks wonderful.

Any clues what a "counter service buffet" might mean?

I like the idea of a southwestern-style buffet, but this sounds like it might be a lower class of food compared to the full-up table service buffets elsewhere on property.

This is going to be our first visit to CSR - booked a 4 night post cruise stay b/c of the 25% off. We usually stay at POFQ. I have been reading this post and I just want to confirm that Cabana 8a or 8b is good for a standard room? We like to be close to bus stop as due to some health issues, I am usually exhausted by the end of the day. Thanks

I wonder if it might mean fewer choices than some of the other breakfast buffets - the breakfast standards, but maybe not some of the more unusual items. I'd like to see a southwestern buffet, too, or at least an omelet station with some interesting choices.

Cabana 8A is our favorite spot, and we were steps away from the cabanas bus stop. CSR has four bus stops, so requesting a room close to a bus stop gives you a lot of choices.

Hard to speculate at this point. We arrive on Dec 14th for a 2 week stay. I will post on here as soon I get a chance to check it out.

It's official. I've just booked our April trip to Disney and CSR was the winner! I'm so excited to stay here again. Not sure how thrilled I am about PM becoming a buffet but, we'll see. Will surely be following along here to see the reviews come in.

Yay for you!!!

Pepper Market shouldn't be too bad...Breakfast and Lunch will be a CS credit buffet, but dinner will be a CS regular-style meal like they are currently doing. I agree, I am kind of 'eh' about the buffet news as I really dislike most buffets...but since it will still be a CS credit on the DDP it should be tolerable.

This last hour at work is killing me! We are starting our trip in 5 hours...still have more packing to do...I really can't wait to get to CSR for our first stay. Thank you to everyone on this board for all the great reviews and tips about this resort. We are so excited that we picked it! I can't believe that I'll finally be in the World tomorrow! I feel like a little kid at Christmas!

I wonder what that will do for those of us who don't use the DDP? I expect that for those of us who want a smaller breakfast (like maybe just a waffle or something) it will be prohibitive.

I was thinking the same thing about Pepper Market when you are not on ddp. Any news on prices or if you can just get something small?
