I flip flop between coffee and tea. It all depends on the time of year and where I am and how I feel. Honestly I think it's the "extra cream" I'm addicted to in the coffee.
Nothing worse than a strong coffee that is bitter and messes up the cream.
Or even worse BURNT.

What building were you in? We didn't book a water view, just "preferred." I believe it said any view was possible...

Thanks so much for the info. Very helpful. I really haven't done much research at all about CSR. It is probably the resort I know least about, and now it looks like we may be staying there soon! I chose it over CBR because posted bus transport times are generally less than the busses from CBR. POR and POFQ are full for our dates, as are all the monorail resorts. Right now we have ressies at WL and CSR and trying to decide which we should keep. This thread makes me think we'd be very happy at CSR even though it's a moderate resort. And then we can save some money! For more Disney food!

So, we are booked for Christmas at CSR, now the big question as I'm on page 33 of this thread and still am unsure, so I'll ask the question. Do you get charged 10% for tip when eating in the Pepper Market? We will have a dining plan.

When you're on the DDP it doesn't get charged automatically. You leave a cash tip on the table. I usually left $5, they seemed happy with that.

New RFID mugs at CSR yet?

Hi all! I'm going to CSR next week and was wondering if anyone has been there within the past week or if anyone is going now...have they installed the new refillable mug system there yet? I'll just admit it, I am going to bring my mugs from February but don't want to lug them down there if I can't use them. (Not looking for debate about the honesty of this please.) I'm going down for my wedding planning session (getting married in Feb at WDW).
Thanks!

With regards to tipping, I have a tip ()...we used cash for just about all our tips. We would be sure to write CASH on the tip line on the receipt. This way, you protect yourself from an untrustworthy server writing in their own amount therefore increasing their tip, which you would not find out about until you receive your total bill upon checkout. Sure, you could fight it, but who wants to deal with that on their checkout day?

You hate to think that someone would do that, but it has happened. Never just leave the line blank.

We are booked but DH wants to change to a different resort. My travel agent asked the question about tipping and was told, "no there is no tipping at Pepper Market".

Wow this is odd. To do it or not!!!
I was hoping to use my Disney Rewards Dollars for extras and tipping. Wonder if that would work.
But I see how the DP can make that weird and the cash is a good idea. However I always wonder if the tip got to the server or did some one walk by and take it.

If you are on the dining plan Pepper Market is a great value and more upscale than other places that only take QS credits. The plus side of PM is they seat you like a TS restaurant so no scrambling for a table like other quick service places, they bring your drinks/refills, and they bus the tables so you don't have to clean up after. In return they expect a small tip, about half what you would tip at a TS place. I find some of the food offerings to be a little more upscale than counter service as well. CSR is a beautiful resort don't switch because of PM. This year will be our 3rd Christmas at CSR!

Because they move a lot more people through than a table service, they bus the table almost immediately when you get up to leave. There would be very little opportunity for someone to steal the tip.
