I checked Riverside -- the one time I stayed at POP, I had some of the worst nights sleep in my life (well, when I wasn't sick or sick with worry over something). Lot of noise from outside, and super thin walls with loud neighbors. We absolutely trudged through the parks during the day. For us, anyway, doing commando touring requires a good nights sleep. I know not everyone has that experience, but it was definitely ours, and enough to know it's not for us.

Though I would choose POFQ over Riverside. That way, if they're sharing buses, you are always the first pickup and dropoff. Less likelihood of boarding a bus with no seats. I always felt so bad for the people at the last bus stop at Riverside.

I just checked on Orbitz and I can get 2 nights much cheaper than with WDW. Art of Animation is just $105 a night!

Now I am totally confused! For me it is sticker shock because we used to pay $49 for a value and $79 for a mod
$79 for a mod? That must have been a long time ago. I haven't stayed in a mod for about 10 years and I thought $105 was good then.
