Pepper Market is a counter service, “buffeteria” style food court in Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World. The menu features a wide variety (and we do mean wide) of American and Mexican cuisine. It has one of the most expansive menus of ‘things we’d actually want to eat’ of any counter service restaurant at Walt Disney World. Pepper Market participates in the Disney Dining Plan, but does not accept Tables in Wonderland for a 20% discount. It is one of the best uses (currently, second-best) of a counter service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
Over the last few years, Pepper Market has had a bit of an identity crisis, going from standard counter service food court to buffet, back to food court. It has also tested out a variety of different menu items. For a location that most theme park guests will never experience, it seems that Disney has given Pepper Market a lot of attention. This is likely because of its strong convention demographic, and either trying to make a good impression on business travelers in the hopes of luring them back, or simply trying to find a good balance of efficiency and quality in this spot that can be quite popular during events.
Whatever the reason, all guests of Pepper Market are the winners. Pepper Market has a strong, varied menu with plenty of enticing choices and at a full range of price points, which can make it appealing from a value perspective to those on the Disney Dining Plan and those paying out of pocket. Most important, the food is good and unique.
