I've done it several times

Try Evergreen for German beer on tap - it's a great place to relax ..........

How late is the store open? We won't arrive til around 9pm, but I know the men in our party will want a beverage after being on the plane with 4 kids for hours.

Do they offer a variety of beers? Do they have other types of drinks, like Hard Lemonade or similar? How about wines?

Thanks for your answers. We had planned to make a grocery stop to pick up what we wanted, but I just saw that the ticket office closes at 9pm, and we have to get our tix that night so that we can be out bright and early the next morning for the parks. Since our plane lands at around 7:45, we are cutting it close already.

Jesters, I think that the store closes at 9. But the sports bar (Evergreens) should be open when you get there.

There was definitely a good variety of beer at the store. I don't remember exactly how extensive the collection of wine was, but I know we bought a great bottle of German wine. East Meets West also has wine, though you'd have to put it in your fridge and wait for it to chill. We didn't pay attention to the malt beverages, though I'd assume they have those too.

I have a few questions, they may be addressed somewhere else, but this thread is sooo long. Does anyone have pictures of the rooms now that it has been renovated? The website allears.net seems to have old pictures prior to the renovation. My son has peanut allergies and they are very willing to work with me in the parks but what about the places to eat at the SOG? Also we will be going from 18 OCt - 26 Oct and I was wondering about the pools there will they be open and lastly is one room big enough for a family of five (children aged 11, 9 & 4) We went about 12 years ago but that was before kids and I really don't remember how big the room was? Thanks.

Go to the SOG website and it has pictures of the rooms. They are quite large (480 square feet, I believe). There are 2 queen size beds and the couch opens up for a fifth person so you should have plenty of room.

Yes the pools are open year round.

As Al said, no to Disney meal plans.

The restaurants should be able to work with you.

Your best information would come from contacting SOG directly, by e-mail or phone call with any specific requests. You can even find out about any renovations (pool, whatever) that might be happening during your stay.

Go to the website: www.shadesofgreen.org and click on Contact Us. They are really good about answering questions quickly.

KatRob, not trying to take over your reply. Just wanted to clarify the rooms.

http://www.shadesofgreen.org/rooms.htm

Looking at the first row of pictures, these are the rooms in the new wing.

Row 2 first picture shows the sink area of what I assume is the new wing. Never been in the new wing, but this does not look like the old section . There is definitely a picture of the old section double sink on Allears.

Row 2 other pictures are the old wing rooms. As you can see, the difference is of course, the furniture and the bedspreads. One big difference, that I personally prefer, is the partial wall partitions between the beds and the table/chairs and pull out couch. It gives the room the slight appearance of a suite.

Row 3 first picture is the view of the old section table/chairs and pull out couch cannot be seen opposite the table.

Row 3 other pictures.......This is a view of the handicapped bathroom in what I know to at least be the old section. The difference is handicapped rooms have sink/toilet and tub in one big room. Notice the sink is a single sink with little counter space. In the non-handicapped rooms, the tub/toilet is in one tiny room and outside that room is a double sink with large counterspace similar to the picture in row 2.

Be aware that the rooms in the old section were never "renovated". They still have the same drapes/bedspreads and furniture they always had. The new wing has new stuff because, well, the entire wing is new.

Hope this helps.

We have always stayed in the old section, we like to be closer to the pool, but I have to say they are looking a little run down - especially the bathrooms.

Maybe next time we will try the newer section.

I know my last time there was 2006, but I have never heard of a "green card". We always just showed our resort IDs (room key). Is the green card a recent thing?
