I know! Same for us. We liked the end rooms because the back door was there and we could just walk out, cross the pavillion, and be over at the pool. BUT, it was a loooong walk at the end of the night. I definitely didn't mind being closer.

Much prefer the closer rooms.

Thank you all for your input, looks like I will request the same area as before.

Hello all - a few questions. I have booked SOG for next December (the week leading up to Christmas).

1). Can I add room requests to my reservation? If so, what should I ask for? I've booked a standard room.

2). Can I have a small Christmas tree (32") in the room? Any problems foreseeable with that? We will be there actual Christmas Day, and I can't imagine not having a tree...even a small one.

depends on what you want. What do you mean by room requests?

Just anything location-wise that would be better (for buses, main hub, etc.)

gotcha. All spots are good really, closer to elevators is just closer but it can be noisier . The place isn't as large as some of the giant WDW hotels so nothing feels too far. And you're all in two connected buildings so there's no walking outside between locations.

I usually just email the requests using the 'contact us' form online.

For anyone who has been at SOG in the last few months, has the work on the pool upgrades been started? If so, when do they anticipate the work being completed. Thanks.

My understanding is that it was supposed to start in January.

We just made reservations for Nov after we return from our one week cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. Hoping they have discounts for the time we're staying. In Oct 2011, we got 1/2 price room and the 4 day park tickets. Cheapest trip to WDW ever for us. This will be our 6th trip ever, 4th without kids. Lots to plan.

Ticket Question

I'm wondering if someone can help me with a question about the military 4-day tickets. I understand that you can buy 6 in total. We are a party of 4. Can we buy all 6 but activate the first 4 on the first day of our trip and then activate the other 2 for day5-8. If that is the case, we would only have to purchase 2 additional 4 day tickets at full price. I'm just not sure about the rules of activation...does it have to be all at one time or is there a minimal amount of days you need between activations? Thanks!

Activation does not have to be all at one time. No minimal days between. You may actually be able to activate them all at one time, but then just not use two of them until you need to. For instance, we activated some last year, used 1 day later in the week, and then used the remaining 3 days, months later. Probably none of that makes sense, but activating them is no big deal.

I'm also interested in the pool rehab, I know it was announced last year but then the notice was taken off their website. I'm trying to decide where to stay this summer if SOG has finished the upgrades they were originally talking about before the summer we might stay there again if they are mid-redesign or scrapping the rehab all together we were thinking about staying somewhere else (since we've stayed at SOG for the last three trips).
