I got stickers at the Dollar Tree as well as my ponchos (which we didn't need).

Yes....I already bought the ponchos. I live in Toronto, so for us it's Dollarama.
I am gonna go get small envelopes as well as a couple of little things there on Monday.

Hi everyone! I am thinking of staying at POFQ next year the last week of April and was wondering if any of you who just came back can confirm any cheerleader/seniors sightings? I just got back myself and stayed at the Poly, where there were no cheerleaders but saw tons of them in the park. I know they mostly stay at the values, but I'm wondering how many of them spill over to POFQ?

My mother's day trip starts on Friday! Only 4 days at POFQ, but I can't wait. Going with my DH, but visiting my DS who is a CM on the CP doing QSF&B at AKL. (Translation - my son is a Cast Member on the College Program doing Quick Service Food and Beverage at the Animal Kingdom Lodge). So visiting him is my mother's day gift to myself!

Judging by the map, it would appear that buildings 2, 5 and 6 would be the least likely buidlings to have a parking lot view. That being said, I was in a corner room in Building 1 that had the two windows. One looked out on the parking lot and the other faced some trees. Truth be told, I never looked out to the parking lot and it was a beautiful room. On the other hand, I had a water view room at Port Orleans Riverside that looked out at one of the quiet pools in the Mansion Section, but it was located right at the top of a staircase so there was a lot of foot traffic. I guess my point is that parking lot views are not always bad....

I think if you ask for a courtyard or garden view, you should be ok. One side of building 1, 3, 4, and 7 face the parking lots, the other sides face the gardens / courtyards. Buildings 2 and 5 can face either the river, the pool, or the gardens / courtyards. (We specified no pool view and we were in Building 5 facing the river.) The only building that only faces the river or the gardens / courtyards is Building 6.

Thank you so much for your help! We will ask for either buildings 2, 5 or 6 and would be happy with any of those! How many floors are there in each building?
