Lifeguards are on duty longer hours at other disney properties. It was 11pm when we were at All Stars. Not sure what the opening time was, we were never around.

I am staying on Disney property however I think you can still log in to My Disney Experience and go to add tickets. Then you type in the serial number on the back of the tickets you have into My DE. Hope that helps. If I'm wrong anyone please correct me.

Just wanted to pass a heads up that that I am cancelling 3 rooms at SoG that fall over Christmas (20-25)... I saw that Christmas was booked so I wanted to post here in case someone was hoping for something to open up! I'm not sure when inventory goes back in but figured it was worth mentioning!

It's all for a good reason - our group of 12 managed to snag FD and will be able to breathe much easier in 4 rooms v 3!!!

Pretty much any hotel will let you check in if a room has been cleaned and inspected by housekeeping and released back into inventory. Shades is no exception. If you have specific requests i.e. a certain room, corridor, location, connecting etc. then you may decrease your chances a bit. Certain days of the week are way busier for changeover (Sat, Sun, Mon) which will also shrink the number of rooms ready early. FWIW, if you can't get into a room, a pool chair is usually available for napping.

Typhoon Lagoon news

"Starting June 10 2014, the bus service to and from Typhoon Lagoon after 2pm will only be available at Epcot. This means that if going to Typhoon Lagoon, you will first need to go to Epcot via bus or monorail, and then change onto the bus to Typhoon Lagoon.

On the return journey, you will be dropped-off at Epcot, and will then take another bus or monorail to your next destination. Note that the changes of route only impacts those traveling after 2pm."

How does this effect the Shades bus?

I'm staying at a Disney Resort in July, but want to purchase tickets at SOG. Where can I find info on pre-purchasing military tickets from SOG?
Thanks!

Thanks! I can't decide if the gift is getting FD or not having to stay with MIL and FIL in same room

Not sure if things have changed, but last trip we were told we could not pre-order tickets if we weren't staying at SoG. I ended up just running over and buying them while rest of family wandered around DtD. This trip, we're just going to order from ITT.
Hope things have changed since we went last time - the line to buy tickets was ridiculous!!!

It should have no impact since Shades is not a WDW resort. Sounds like WDW made a decision based on how few people travel after 2 so they just consolidated the routes to save money.

It does not affect the SOG bus system, which is not the same as the WDW bus system.

Yes, it's not the same bus system, but because it has to do with road construction and not ridership ("The routing changes are related to the bus stop closures and lane changes taking place at Downtown Disney during the expansion of the roadways for Disney Springs. There is no word yet on how long the new route will be in effect for.") I'm wondering if they might restrict Shades bus access.
