Alligator Bayou

Which building do you recommend staying in out of the Alligator Bayou buildings? I'd like something close to one of the first bus pick up stops so we make sure the bus isn't full. Thanks!

See the first posting in the FAQ thread too, but the general consensus is that building 14 is the best located lodge in terms of easy access to the buses, food court and facilities.

I can't wait to go back here. I posted pictures waaaaay back from our February 2009 trip. We were going to stay at POP this time back with our kids, but decided to go back to our favorite mod....POR. I'm excited to show the kids the resort and to hopefully get to check out 'Ol Man Island this time around. We leave in 97 days!

At POR, they have a tree just inside the rotunda.

They use white and red poinsettas to line the walkway up to the front of the building around Guest Services.

They hang garland on the front entrance.

The store is full of Christmas stuff!

I'll be there on Sunday and promise to post lot's when I get back!! (unless there's a way to upload them from my iphone while I'm there?) I've loved looking through this thread in anticipation of our trip!
Any thing in particular someone would like a photo of?

I would like photos of the current menu items from the food court and drink fountain as well as the to go food section. It has been a long time since I stayed at POR and with my up coming trip and like to see how things are layout and what is being offered so I can plan ahead. Send me a message if you get to post any of these please. Thanks In Advance.

Yes, snaps of the food court menu boards and prices (for breakfast and dinner if you happen to be there for both) would be great.

Have a GREAT time at my favourite place! And say hi to Bob.

Well being 5 months pregnant and on the QSDP, I'm sure I'll have plenty of opportunity to take a few pics of anything in the food court!!
I'll snap a few pictures of each of the menus, and try to get them at both breakfast and dinner (and probably endure some funny looks while doing so!)
And I will certainly say hello to Bob!
