Where's the Disney at CSR?

It might sound a weird question, but we stayed at ASMu last time and loved the OTT theming I got a better deal at CSR than we would at ASMu, even with extra people! We will definitely be staying there and I love the look of it, but I know that all of us will be looking for signs of Disney so I hoped someone might be able to point me towards some

I know lots of people like a break from it all after a day at the parks - but not us!

So excited

We have been to Disney before, but never been able to stay on Disney property. Our family is going to be staying at Coronado Springs the second week of November. We are so looking forward to it. My husband and I are currently trying to think of ways to surprise our children, they are 13 and 8 as we still have not told them. We are beyond excited

My family and I have always stayed at Port Orleans during our Disney vacations. We are thinking of switching it up for our 20th anniversary. Why do you prefer CSR over POR? Any help would be appreciated. I'm also thinking of going deluxe with either WL or AKL.

Question on movie schedules...When do they typically come out? We'll be there the first week in May. Will the schedule be released in April? Or will we have to wait and see what it is when we get there since it'll be so close the the start of the month?

Excited but a bit anxious since I know nothing about the resort.
I just made a last minute switch to Coronado Springs also. I originally booked the Wilderness Lodge a few months ago, then I switched to Pop earlier this week to cut costs, then I decided that I really didn't want to stay at Pop (no offense, but I just don't think I can deal with all the bright colors and big statues) and switched to Coronado yesterday. Thank goodness I had a room only reservation and could make all those changes with no problems! I didn't really know too much about Coronado either aside from it being a large, Mexican themed convention resort, but I watched a DIS Unplugged video that gave it an excellent review. I booked a preferred room and requested Casitas 1, so hopefully that means I'll have a short walk to the main building and the bus stop. I was also worried about the 10% service charge at Pepper Market but I read that I can just get my food to go and not pay the service charge, so that'll work better for me since I wanted to get my food to go anyway.

So there is a 10% charge in Pepper Market? Does that count as tip for the server who brings you the food? ('cause I heard you order at the counter and they bring your food)...

I asked for Cabanas or Ranchos... I don't mind the long walk...

When we went you had to wait at the different counters for your food. The only thing the server brought is was drinks. That was a few years ago though. May have changed since then.
