Yes, they are getting all new buses, but not til next spring. It was on their fb page. We depend on Disney transportation most of the time and definitely will moreso this Nov. We don't mind the walk to the Poly or TTC.

Hi everyone! I am booking my stay at SOG for Feb this week and I am so excited. I have been to SoG many times but never with my ds3 and ds2. My favorite thing about SOG is the room size! I chose SOG for the room size, peacefulness, price, and atmosphere. DH is not a big fan of Disney but the golf courses helped me persuade him!

Just got back from SOG 8-24, . We had an awesome time. Love the peacefulness and room size there and of course the location. Can't forget the friendliness of the staff. Have to say, we felt the food was much improved since our stay 2 years ago. We ate lunch and a late dinner at Evergreens which we all enjoyed. The breakfast buffet at Garden gallery was good as usual. We ate lunch at Mangino's 3 times and found it very tasty. Sandwiches at the Express cafe by the bus stop were also good. The remodel of the Java cafe was a great idea. You can get anything from coffee and quick breakfast items like yogurt, fruit and muffins, also ice cream...to beer and bar drinks. For those concerned about the pool being crowded because of the remodel don't worry. We were there most afternoons and didn't find it crowded. We used the Sog buses quite a lot and had no issues. The post Disney depression has set in. Hope it won't be too long before we can plan another trip to SOG and Disney. To all of you with trips coming up have a great time!

I understand the Disney vacation blues. We will be there in three weeks and. after a very short two-week visit, back to the post Disney blues too.

Ok, OK ... no more whining from me!

But I'm still going to do my count down!

By the way ... for those of you who were just there and maybe someone who is still there: Is there a stage up in front of Big Blue at HS? I have been trying for two years to get some night shots of Big Blue and it seems every single time we go, there is a huge stage in front of it. I thought that, since we are going in Sept this year, I would be able to get some good night shots. But then I read that there is a Monster U stage up. Sheesh!!!

Please tell me is aint so!!!

Military Disney Tips has photos of concept art for a slide at the Mickey pool and a small child play area in the baby pool on his Facebook page. Hoping this happens! That is the only thing we miss when we stay at SOG... my kids LOVE slides!

Lol... born and raised in NY... spent some time out of state while my husband was in the military... but even that was in New England.... we are just north of Syracuse so not far from you. How do we do it... we go to Disney two or three times a year.... get out of the cold for even a few days helps give us a spark... Tim and I are going next week with my sister and her husband for 5 days.... can't wait!

I am so tempted to book at that 40% off rate for next September. We'd be out of promotional park tickets, though (using them for our November trip) so I don't think I could convince DH. But, wow, what a deal on rooms that is...
