That's awesome!! We just had to bump our dates from August to December ( first day of school is a week earlier than usual!!). We 're free dining @ Caribbean beach but want to swap to SOG if a good deal opens up!

Does anyone know if SOG is going to offer a December special this year? They did deck the palms previous years with breakfast and dinner included.

That's awesome! We are on free dining at Caribbean beach in December (had to switch from August since school is starting a week earlier this year!!)

Anyone know if the deck the palms package will be offered again in December (or any other offer?). We want to stay Shades (for the bigger room and balcony) but so far free dining was the better deal!

On the SOG website, the December special is listed as "Stay and Play in our Winter Wonderland" for dates December 1 - 19. Rates start at $89.00 (for category 1) and includes breakfast for 2 adults in the Garden Gallery.

I read this correct stars and stripes ticket for their for 2 days ( length of time they will be able to stay) can also qualify for Fl resident on top of Stars and Stripe ticket for ncreased savings. Anyone know?

Thanks!
We always buy our tickets at Shades of Green when we visit. We usually make this part of our first day ritual. You can tell the gate you only need to buy tickets and they will let you onsite with a pass. You will need to have proper military ID. It is right past the check in desk. Very easy to get to and usually not much of a line. They also have a small AAFES store there where you can buy sun hats/snacks, etc using the Military Star card. Unfortunately the Star card can't be used for attraction tickets.
I'm not sure about pre-purchase from Shades. You may have to check their website to see if that is offered. If its not on the site they are pretty good about answering emailed questions.

Have not been on this page in forever. Life just got very busy. Missed everyone and am looking forward to our October trip.

And please send me some pixie dust. I applied for an internal communications manager position at ... drum roll ... Disney World!

I just wanted to add that you can shop at AAFES without the Star card. We don't have one and just use our Amex.

Returned last week from our 3rd Shades stay! Besides the 2 fire alarms mishaps ( one at 8:30pm and one at 12:30am) our stay was perfect! I loved room 244 . I enjoyed being closer to the lobby , but also close to the pools . We enjoyed the great pitchers of beer / free popcorn / and decent food at Evergreens!! Can't say the same about the overpriced buffet ! We loved the new pool, the kids enjoyed the volleyball net and I loved the hot tub ! It will be sad though when both pools close early and open late!!

The Mill Pond aka Mickey Mouse pool has not been renovated yet - the renovations are scheduled to start at the end of July and run through December.

The Magnolia pool renovation is complete. It is open 10am to 10pm and now has life guards. So there is a pool available even with the Mill Pond pool closed for renovations.

Does anyone know if you can pre-purchase park passes at SOG ...even if not staying there??? I had read somewhere that there is a form or something. I can get 6 of the salute tickets here locally, but we need one more either MYW or Stars and Stripes ticket to go with our others. I want to get them soon so I can do the FP+ and enter the ticket info into MDE.
