I should give you a heads up on the internet at SOG. Here's the info from the SOG Newsletter:



Last time we visited (Jan 2008), they had a wired connection in each room. You'd get a ethernet wire from the front desk. So you could only use the internet in your room, and due to the short wires, you basically had to use it at the small round table.

Now they have wireless internet throughout the entire hotel. They sell little business cards like this with a 24-hour access code:



We bought 5 cards at check-in ($6.95 each) for the length of our stay. For some reason, I only used one of them. My access was never shut off.

So you might want to buy each card as you need them, instead of buying a bunch at one time.

The wifi sucks. Very slow, almost dial-up speed. Some times it would burst, and pages would come up instantly. Other times it would time-out. And I had a great connection (always 4-5 bars). So that was a bit frustrating. Don't bother trying to download or upload any large files.

Bus vs. Taxi

We have an 8am ADR at AK on one of our days at WDW. Will we be able to use a bus or should be get a taxi? Will SOG help us secure a taxi?
Thanks.

You have definitely answered a lot of questions with your last few posts. Good to see internet is wireless in the rooms now.

Do the Starbucks coffee stand and the Express Cafe (the place to grab quick breakfast items, etc.) take Visa?

I believe they do accept CC's. I just rather charge to my room.

Ok, thanks!
Other than SOG purchases WDW purchases cannot be charged to our room keys, correct? This is where I get confused. I know purchases can be delivered to SOG since my neighbor did this earlier this year. But, I am thinking you can't actually charge those purchases to the room.

Welcome home DMGeurts! Glad you had a good trip. Shouldn't Seabee be back by now?

I asked a couple days ago, but I thought I'd ask again. I'm not sure where else to ask this, but does anyone know where the ADA (accessible) rooms are located at SOG?

I'm hoping they are close to the parking garage and/or the shuttle pick up. My mom is very nervous as it is the first time we have been back to WDW since she began using a wheelchair, and I just want her to be comfortable.

Thaks for your help.

The site map does not indicate which rooms are ADA. The website says only that they are found throughout the resort. You could call them.

I would call or e-mail them about it. They answer e-mail very quickly, but if you call and speak with a reservation agent, they should be able to tell you exactly. And they can specify ADA rooms on the reservation. I know everything is a "request" but that certainly does not fall into that category. Matter of fact, once I requested not to be put past a certain room number and was told "I'll just put you down for a handicap accessible room." I said no thank you, I just didn't like the back of the building.

Those halls get very long at the end of the day.
