First time at PO

The kids (16, 14) and I will be staying for the TOT run Oct 3rd - 7th. We've only stayed at the Sports resort, any tips to what rooms we should request? I've heard 26 is quiet, but how far from the main lobby, food, buses, etc is it?

That photobucket link contains lots of pics around POR from our Sept 2012 trip. Also has shots of the Royal Guest Room Garden View...which ended up being riverview basically. There are a few shots showing all of our stuff maxing out the room too. We had three adults, and one ten year old, with 9 days worth of stuff.

Can someone explain the bus stop thing to me?

I know there are 4

So I know the bus goes to the main one 1st.. Then so on...

But what happens if its full?
Does it just skip the other stops?

If we are on the far side of the resort and trying to make ADR should we just walk to the main stop?

We are going to the Ploy to watch Wishes from the beach. What's the quickest was back to POR? I was thinking of getting a taxi but do taxis have booster seats for kids?

Bell services by the front desk can. Or if you ask pretty please you may find one nice enough to take you over to the POR in a car from Poly's Motorpool.

No clue. Oak Manor, second floor, if facing river on the left side in the exact middle of the courtyard. It was perfect.

Ohh ok we were in 9274 and that one shot of the corner room looked familiar. I know they all look the same corner rooms that is. But the reflections in the glass and what I could see when the blinds are open.

Thank you for sharing those pictures! I'm having a crappy day and those beautiful pictures brought a smile to my face! Only 62 days until our first visit to POR.
