Ditto here. I like your food court shots, it's not easy to find it that empty while it's daylight outside - early morning near the middle of June I assume?

Here's another early morning reflection shot which I don't think I've posted before:

For long exposure night shots, a tripod is best to avoid either camera shake or high-ISO noise. But You can still get some fairly decent results hand-held if you're careful.

Such nice pictures! thanks everyone for sharing. I really need to learn how to take pictures like this. I especially love the night shots with the lights shining so bright. 67 days and I will be there!

We stayed at POR for the first time last October, and it's my new favorite resort! Here are a few pics (we were in a Princess room), and there are more if you follow my TR link below. Everyone who is planning a trip in the near future: enjoy! I'm jealous...

Lobby panoramic my DH took (can't figure out how to get it to look bigger when it posts here):


Our courtyard:


The view across the river:


Princess room w/"fireworks":


A few early morning scenery shots:

I just read in another thread someone say that they don't get why people like POR. I guess they've never seen this thread! Gorgeous.

We are going to the POR in June. (Its our first visit to WDW) We are 5 and booked a standard room. Any advice on which sections to ask for? We don't want to be too far from lobby and pool, yet still want a quiet spot. Thanks for your help!

You're posting in a photos thread, probably better to ask in the main POR FAQ thread at www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3063960 (but for five people you'll be in Alligator Bayou, so for Standard View rooms I'd suggest buildings 16 or 17 would be perfect for you).
