That sounds heavenly! I love early mornings at Disney. They're just so magical.

Thanks. I was hoping they were disposable as I'm not sure I'll be buying a refillable mug. I was thinking I'd make coffee in the room and take off instead of taking a refillable mug to Cafe Rix. It would be much easier to leave the room and not be concerned with returning the plastic mug. Oh well, maybe I'll pack some styrofoam cups.

It's not a self clean up like most quick service and people waiting to sit as soon as you get up from the table. right?

As my girlfriend keeps saying, after being there a day or two we will figure out how things work. But it is nice to have the heads up.
Pepper Market actually has a hostess to seat people. There is definitely no one hovering over you waiting for you to get up. They will clean up after you and bring you refills for your drinks. If you're on a DDP and choose to bring refillable mugs, they will fill them for you and give you a bottle of water for the road if you wish as your meal would include a non-alcoholic beverage.

Pepper Market can be a bit confusing at first. Your server will bring everyone in the party a card. You take the card to the food stations and have the cook stamp on it what you got. The server will collect the cards at the end of your meal and then present you a check.

On some days, I may make a run to get food while my family wakes up. Can you take the cards and get food to go easily ?

Even without the table and chairs in the room, it still is an easier way to start the day by eating in the room.

Thanks for the great info on this thread.

Yes they bus the table and bring you drinks. Expected tip is about 10%. Usually for 2-4 people $5 would be fine. It is true that if you are in a hurry this isn't the place to eat, but we were never in a hurry when we ate there.

They are replacing fridges as they get them like the other resorts. I read on another forum that the Business Class rooms have working fridges. Makes sense to replace the most expensive rooms first.

We are staying Business Class our next stay at CSR so we will get breakfast there, but before that we ordered breakfast supplies from Garden Grocer and had breakfast in the room every morning. It was cheaper, quicker, and we didn't have to fight the breakfast crowd.

You can always pick up some Styrofoam cups and lids at the marketplace...

Thanksgiving Week - No Convention A Good Thing?

Staying Thanksgiving week at CSR and no convention scheduled. I'm thinking that's a good thing (less people at the resort who are not Disney addicted...) but does CSR scale down services when there's no convention? For example, shorter pool hours, etc..

Conventions do not affect hours or services.

Even though there may not be one listed on here doesn't mean there isn't one being held.
None were listed for our days this past week but there was actually 2 going on and we did notice the influx of people on those days.

Shipping and Deliveries

Hi everyone

I am going to be at CSR November 14-22. First timer at any moderate resort so I have a few questions. Trying to figure out the shipping situation. I know it has been said there is a charge for UPS/Fed Ex packages to be delivered. I believe they also said USPS was free. I may be shipping a box down, so that is good information to have. Is there a different address you have to ship things to through the USPS?

Also, I was planning on using Garden Grocer for some items. Is there a charge by CSR for this service also or just the delivery fee from Garden Grocer? Does anyone know how far in advance you need to order? With the fridge situation, I am concerned about ordering refrigerated food/drinks. I would like to know if there are working refrigerators before I order.

I know these questions have probably been asked but I dug through the posts and I couldnt find them. Sorry if this is a recent repeat.

thanks!!

Very true.. However I really do not see there being any conventions TG week. It's highly unlikely.

I think being in Mass. no other coffee can compare. When you are used to Dunks, its the only thing you can run on! We always drive and i plan which cash station we go to when they have dunks to get too.
