    You can, but you can't use the TiW there either. It can only be used at the Maya Grill and that's only at dinner time.

    But if you are at any other mod, you also do not have the option of a sit down restaurant for breakfast that takes TIW.

    Pepper Market is 100% counter service for all three meals. As someone else pointed out, the only resorts that take TIW at a food court/cs location are the values and POFQ because they do not have a sit down right there.

    Al a Carte is only available at PM for dinner.

    I do wish they had some seating at Cafe Rix since if you are not on the DDP the out of pocket price for Pepper Market is high and also sometimes you don't want a buffet, you just want something quick. But you want indoor seating too!

    Very true Kathy. I will add, that the cm's at Pepper Market as well as Cafe Rix were all so nice on our trip. I used to hear about how unmagical they all were because they aren't true "cm's" but our experience was just the opposite.

    There is indoor seating, granted its not huge. I've watch TV there and that is where the microwave is. The seating area is just past the registers. Also, they have condiments there and the trash containers.

    For us two weeks ago, we stopped at Pop first, then CSR then the bus was going on to AKL/AKV.

    I missed that somehow! Of course I usually sent dh over there. We generally just did breakfast or a late night sandwich in our room.

    Not sure if this was mentioned yet, but the Princess Half Marathon Expo is now going to be held at the CSR.

    Disney's Fit for a Princess Expo

    Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
    9:00 a.m.  7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 22, 2013
    9:00 a.m.  6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2013

    There may be more than normal sightings of grown women in Tiaras. The Half is on Feb 24 really early in the morning. I suppose with this new change there could also be more people moving resorts to be closer to the expo, but that's a guess. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone looking at end of Feb!

    OMG....what will this mean for people that arent there for the marathon?

    I am staying there the night of the 23rd post-cruise for just the one night. I picked CSR because of my personal goal of eventually staying in every resort....

    Before anyone suggests switching...Deluxe is too expensive and the only one I havent stayed at is the Poly and the Yacht club. Already stayed at CBR and POR. POFQ will be in October for Halloween!!!

    I would not worry about it one bit. The race on the 24th starts at 5:30 am, racers will be turning in to bed early on the night of the 23rd. It may be a little busier at the convention center but should not impact your stay. Most racers will not change hotels just because the expo is there, all hotels are hosts for he race.

    I was thrilled to have found this thread last night as I have been second guessing most every choice I've made, from resort to ADR's. After reading here I feel much better about the CSR! We will be there for 7 nights around Easter with 2 15yo. We plan to be busy in the parks day and night and will be driving. My biggest concern is to be fairly close to parking for quick changes to make evening ADR's. We'll probably keep quick breakfast food in the room. I have booked a water view. Reading here makes me think I should change that to a preferred. Any thoughts, if I remember the price was comparable. I read that someone was told they were put in Rancheros because of their 7 night stay. I do see where a convention starts toward the end of our stay. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Hey DIS experts, I have a quick question. I paid off our Disney trip on October 31st and received an email confirmation of that payment. Then yesterday a received an email with an "Invoice" from Disney that shows our package as "Coronado Springs-B9F/Magic Your Way Free Dine.

    Anyone know what B9F means? :confused3 I'm just curious!

    Usually the letters/numbers are a code they use to show what package you are getting like free dining.

    I just saw them in Panchito's Gift Shop 4 days ago. I didn't purchase them but I saw them in the register.

    Have a great trip! :thumbsup2

    Just got home from 9 nights at CSR (&1 at POP) We stayed in Cabanas 8B and I love that location. We had a standard view -AKA parking lot- but I really didn't care. The bus stop was a 30 second walk. The Dig site was about a 3 minute walk and El Centro was about a 5 minute walk. Even the water view rooms (in Cabanas anyway) are close to the parking lot. It isn't far at all.

    There were numerous conventions going on while we were there- that leads to a few things. 1) Not many people on the busses 2) People in meetings which leads to less people around the resort and empty pools.

    Have a great trip!
