Yeah, we used it in January and had to ask them to turn it down. It was really hot, but relaxing none the less!


We are using AFVC in November and getting a 2BR timeshare with 2 baths, jacuzzi tub, two pools.hot tub, etc etc for $49/night. Great deal. I'll post back and give a review of it.

Me personally I would stay at SOG - I know staying at a Value would be cheaper for us, but I love SOG. It is quiet after a long day at the parks, we eat at the breakfast buffet, which is OK and not expensive or get something by the buss. The meal plan wouldn't be worth it for us, my DS is a picky eater and is not a big eater. DH is a big breakfast eater, I'm not.
I agree. This is exactly the reason why we want to stay at SOG --the quiet (or so I've heard from others). We will actually be spending less on food than the cost of the DP. But we're not big fancy "sit down" dinner people. We will be perfectly happy with the food at Evergreens, or room service. We will probably spend daily what others are spending on the gratuities from the DP. Fine for others, but not for us.

Ohhhh... I thought I had made my mind up and now this

DH would love the hot tub more than me. I can't stay in long as I get too hot (I love being cold). DD is upset since she learned kids are not allowed in it. So of course her vote is Mill Pond. hmmm

I guess we'll be the only people out in the middle of Nov pool & hot tub hopping struggling not to spill cherished margarita.

I never find the hot tub at SOG to hot, sometimes I've even asked them to make it hotter. I don't know, but to me the hotter it is the better, nonetheless it still feels relaxing either way.

I did not know that. I just thought that anyone under 16 had to be accompanied by an adult.
Some pluses are that the Magnolia pool has a deep end and a shallow end (The Mill Pond pool is only shallow), it is much less crowded and you can see the fireworks at MK from the Magnolia pool.
Ok now I probably made your choice even harder.

The Mill pool goes to 5 1/2 feet deep. Plus there is a kiddie pool that is separate.

How deep does the Magnolia pool go?

I will re-check it, but I thought I had read that the hot tub did not allow children. I remember reading it and informing my DD right away. If I am wrong then my DD would be relieved. I'm hoping I misinformed her...but moms never do that, do we?

Now seeing the fireworks....that would be cool! I just asked DD (we homeschool) & she said "This Disney stuff is too hard! I can't make a decision -- everything's great!" Maybe DH should make the decision....NOT...

5 1/2 is good for me -- heck I can't even swim! (I'm more of a hang out at the pool sipping a drink kind of gal ) DD can swim but doesn't like the really deep end. We probably wouldn't use the kiddie pool though.

You know either pool is good. We had room 136 and we had the view of Mill Pond. Let's see if I can find the picture. I could be wrong about the hot tub. My kids were both 16 or older the last couple times we went so I didn't pay attention.

Our room view





You may get visitors while sitting on your patio





Here are pictures of Magnolia Pool area









And the hot tub

Thank you SOOOOO much for the pictures! I will let DH & DD look and we WILL make a decision.

If this was only the hardest decision one had to make in their life, right?

I hope it's not TOO cold when we get there in Nov. Those pools are calling me

Children under 16 are not allowed in the hot tub. Sorry. When I was there in June I saw the sign (having a 12 year old DGD with us). Also when in the hot tub some pre-teens came in are were immediately asked to leave by an attendant. I was surprised he came so fast! I think there are some type of medical reasons why pre-pubescent children are not allowed in hot tubs as I see this sign posted at all the hot tubs in our Community pools.

Just looked it up. Apparently it has something to do with overheating.

Oh well at least LuvinBelle can sit by the pool with her drink watching DD while she has fun in the pool and DH can relax in the hot tub. All will be happy.
