    POD Show Stop Locations?

    This is kind of an odd question, but I've always wondered -

    As far as I know, there are three show stops in POD (unless it's very hot), right? Well, what if I want to see a particular unit's show stop? Does each unit always stop at predictable points?

    I ask because if I sit through the parade, I'd want to be in a good spot for pictures/videotaping my favourites show stops -- the Alice unit and/or the final unit. ... Maybe the Little Mermaid unit too.

    I know I can't be in a good place for all three of those at once, but at least one would be nice.
    You don't need me or my ham, cheese, cheese, cheese, tomato, cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches. And cheese.

    Well I know that if its coming from Small World to Main Street the Lion King float stops almost right in front of it, then it stops near Ariels Grotto and then in front of the Carnation Cafe. If its coming from Main Street USA to Small World it stops in front of City Hall, then the front of the plaza, and finally Matterhorn Way (can't really see it.)

    Typically:

    From IASW to Town Square:

    1st show stop:
    Ariel: between teacups and matterhorn
    Alice: infront of IASW prominade [by the ice cream cart/special assistance seating]
    Finale: edge of the bricks closest to the gate the parade steps off from

    2nd:
    Ariel: near entrance to tomorrowland, next to the Hub
    Alice: bottom of matterhorn way, across from Ariel's grotto
    Finale: top of matterhorn way, next to Alice attraction [can't really see it]

    3rd:
    Ariel: between City Hall and the Emporium in town square
    Alice: about half way down between Emporium and Carnation Cafe
    Finale: Top of MS near coke corner

    From Town Square to IASW:
    1st:
    Ariel: infront of carnation cafe on MS
    Alice: half way down infront of the emporium on MS
    Finale: infront of the train station in town square

    2nd:
    Ariel: near Ariel's grotto and restrooms
    Alice: next to the Hub near entrance for tomorrowland
    Finale: top of MS next to coke corner

    3rd:
    Ariel: same as 1st Alice show stop
    Alice: same as 1st Ariel show stop
    Finale: near Ariel's grotto and restrooms

    this is off the top of my head so leave a tiny bit of room for error lol
    all of the floats typically stop at these points, however they may actually stop a few feet short or overshoot depending on who is the person calling the float stops
