Extracting Multiple Polygon Attributes to point data OR table at set location

Not really seen a solution to this other than a spatial join.

I'm looking to extract a set polygon attribute (text field) at a set location (a point). I need to do this for a large number of feature classes (200+). If this can be done in model builder i would prefer it to repeating lots and lots of spatial joins.

Basically each map is a timeslice, and I want to extract all of the changes that take place at a single location over the course of all the maps. Each featureclass is labelled with a number for the time period it occupies, ie 1, 2, 3 etc, and the attributes are descriptions of the conditions in the polygon at that time.

At the moment I've basically extracted georeferenced jpeg's for each timeslice and used the sample tool to get RGB valueis, which i then match back to the original symbology style to get the attribute... there must be an easier way surely?

I have limited modelbuilder experience, but pick things up pretty quickly. If this has been asked before then please forgive this spam and link me to another thread!
