Hey there! Joining in! I agree with your CSR feelings - I wouldn't mind staying there one day, but am not in a hurry to do so. My parents live in Arizona...and the Southwest theme is both not a favorite style of mine but also something I see frequently. We've only stayed at POFQ and totally love it, so might be a while before we try CSR. As far as the pumpkin scarecrow goes, I believe while it was never in the books, it WAS in one of the movies I think.
