Craving a Nacho “Overload”?! Visit the Pepper Market!

For us, the Pepper Market found at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is one of Walt Disney World’s best resort-located Quick Service venues.  It offers a bit of everything! 


Its menu is adorned with morsels such as roasted chicken, BBQ ribs, baked pasta, and a variety of “designer” burgers.

You can select a crab cake sandwich, a Philly cheese steak, or choose from a plethora of pizzas, cold sandwiches, or salads!

Perhaps the most popular food station within the market’s walls, however, serves up Mexican Specialties.  Tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, the lines are always long.

Of their offerings, though, many Guests gravitate to Pepper’s $10.59 Market Nachos.  Nacho “overload”?  How about over-loaded nachos?!


A very generous helping of corn tortilla chips layered with chicken or beef, cheese sauce, refried beans, and your choice of toppings, it is more than a meal!

Very shareable, and pretty inexpensive (all things considered), it’s a really good dish!

Staying at Coronado sometime soon?  Drop by Pepper Market.  Many things to choose from … great nachos to load up on!

Wait! Coronado Springs Found Their Boats?!

For those of you who have stayed at, and maybe even love, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, you’ll appreciate this story.

Mrs. All in WDW and I were hit with a big surprise when we stopped by Laguna Bar on a recent trip.  Coronado finally found their boats!

Our very first trip to Walt Disney World was way back in 1999.  We stayed at, and fell in love with, Coronado Springs.

Other than the general theming and atmosphere of the resort, and its Pepper Market “food court”, we loved Lago Dorado for its beautiful view … and its boats!

Take a look at these shots of La Marina.  I pulled them out of my mid-2000’s archive of photos.

Sadly, in recent years, lack of profitability marked the end of Coronado’s dock … its fleet of boats a distant memory.  Well, they’re back!

Or, are they?  In true investigative reporter fashion, I went in search of the resort’s “powers that be”.

Have you ever heard of Mercury Marine?  They make top-quality outboard motors as well as a line of inboard boat engines.

Do you also know that Coronado is a popular Disney convention resort?

Uh, yeah.  Unfortunately, Coronado’s new-found fleet of watercraft had re-appeared as nothing more than “eye candy”.  Mercury was on their way in for a conference, and Coronado “dressed up” for the party.

Hopefully, one day, La Marina will spring back into life, but, today, it’s back to being the same old desolate dock.  Sad, but true.

Hey!  Don’t tease us like that Disney!  It’s not kind!  Cheers, everyone.  Have a great day!

Halloween Hijinks!

Which one should we vote for, folks?

As we entered Coronado Springs this morning, we were met with a pleasant surprise. They want us to vote!


As popular as she is, it’s hard to deny Elsa, but I do have a fondness for Sorcerer Mickey.


Then, again, take a look at that burger and fries!



Which Cast Member carved the best pumpkin, folks? Leave a comment and tell us who to vote for!

All in WDW’s Pepper Market on Disney Food Blog!

I received a note from a reader this morning asking, “I noticed that your posts involve food. I didn’t start reading your … website until about a month or two ago. Do you write about other Disney aspects or just food? Just curious.”

My response was, “Great question! Thanks for reaching out. It’s been a lot of food since Food & Wine. And, I have to admit that I do a lot of ‘recons’ on drinking and dining in Disney. Having said that, no, it isn’t all about food.

Now that Food & Wine is over, I’m working my way back to resorts, attractions, and parks. Polls, trivia, etc. Right now, I’m just catching up on …
