I think so. We were there this Spring and we got one green colored card which we had to show at the EMH. It was good for everyone in that room.

When we were there at Magic Kingdom for the late hours, we just had to show our room key. We didn't get any green card

Perhaps the "green card" was one of those short lived experiments designed to thwart abusers and thoroughly confuse users. Could be a whole new system by the time we get there.

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 .
Yep, that's the sink area of the new section. We've only stayed in the new section. I think we get it because 1. we don't have kids and don't need to be close to pools and 2. we have a car.

I'm hoping that we get that section again 'cause I like it.

Sleepy, never a problem when someone can add to or clarify one of my posts. I take pictures of our rooms, but I never post pictures on the Dis! I haven't stayed in the old section since the new part opened. My DD loves the new section for some reason, and I like not having to walk so far for the car on the last day. I do miss the little wall in the old rooms.

It seems like with all the work they did on the new part, that they would have freshed up the older section. Something else I was wondering about, I know the table isn't huge, but I have only had two chairs in any room. Anyone else had more without having to drag the patio furniture inside?

We were just there 2 weeks ago and they still were giving out the green card for EMH!

We just stayed in the older section and had 4 chairs in the room. One of them didn't match the other 3!

Minnie Lor - When you make a reservation you can request what section you want. We have always requested the older section because it is close to the pool and we have 1 DS. They have always honored our request.

We were just there last week and didn't get a "green card" - and we didn't pay for parking in the parks.

Wait a minute. We stayed in the old section in April, room 130 something, and our bathroom and sink area was like in the new section. I am sure it was with the two sinks outside and the shower and toilet separate. It was not a handicap room.

That is correct. In the old section, if your double sink is in a room separate from the tub/toilet, it means it is a non-handicapped room.

KatRob- I have only gotten 2 chairs in my rooms. We are a family of 3, so what we always did was drag the table and chairs over to one of the beds and use the bed as a third chair.

I know some of the rooms we had in the old section had both types of bathrooms. I hated the room where everything was together, but it had a great view of the Mill Pond. If it was a handicapped room we didn't ask for it and I didn't notice any of the other features that the pictures showed. Could have been and I just didn't pay attention...I'm just always so glad to be back there I take just about whatever they give me.

I know that the resort is non-smoking. (I'm not a smoker and LOVE this.) However, my sister is also staying at SOG and is a smoker. Is she permitted to smoke on her balcony, or any other designated area? Or is it a total no smoking anywhere policy? Thanks!

Smoking is permitted on the patios and balconies of the rooms. There are ashtrays on the patio tables. The deck off the lobby is also a designated smoking area, as well as the bus stop. We noticed smokers were very respectful of the rules at SOG, unlike in the parks and at other Disney resorts.

That didn't sound right to me. The bus stop can be a pretty crowded area at times. This is the e-mail I just received from SOG:

The bus stop is not a smoking area, it is a non-smoking area. Smoking
is permitted in the designated smoking area outside Evergreens and on
your balcony or patio.


But you are right about one thing, the smokers are very respectful compared to those in the parks. Of course, for the most part, everyone staying at SOG are so much more respectful of others period.

Thanks for double checking. When we were there last summer, the bus stop was the area where we noticed the most smokers. It does get very crowded and kids are active, so it was probably an accident waiting to happen. Glad they changed it. It kind of bothered me.
