    Hello, I will be traveling to Disney March 12-16th as surprise for my moms birthday! I am staying at the Coronado springs resort. Will the pepper market be open??? I hope so! As I usually eat sit down breakfast at the hotel

    Hi Lillian,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. First, I have to say I’m super jealous of your lucky mom! I can’t think of a better birthday surprise than a trip to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”

    My family loves staying at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and one of the major reasons is the fantastic Pepper Market Food Court! I’m happy to report that the construction that’s going on at the resort is not impacting the main El Centro building, which is where Pepper Market is located, so you should be all set to enjoy that sit-down breakfast. I really love the early morning walk from my room to El Centro, as the lake is so calm and peaceful; I often stop for a moment to take in the beauty of the resort. My Pepper Market pro-tip is to try the nachos for lunch or dinner; I like to enjoy them with a strawberry margarita on the side.

    Lillian, I’m wishing your mom an absolutely magical birthday! When you check in, be sure to ask for a celebration button so your mom can enjoy birthday greetings throughout her special trip. Also, make sure you have her birthday added to any advanced dining reservations you’ve made, and when you arrive at the restaurant, let the host or hostess know that you’re celebrating…you never know what kind of birthday magic might be in the air.

    Have an amazing birthday vacation!
