WDW Park tix

Not sure where to ask this, so I thought I'd start here. We're staying at SOG Dec 11-17. If we purcahse our park tickets there, do they charge tax or is it tax-free like AAFES?

Thanks!

Transportation schedule

Also, does anyone have a recent shuttle schedule? I'm just trying to get a feel for how frequently the transportation runs from SOG to TT and the parks.

Thanks!

to the DIS, dnroach!

No, you do NOT have to pay sales tax if you buy your park tickets through the SOG ticket office. Current prices are on the SOG website. However, if you are near a base/post, check the prices at MWR or ITT there--they are often even cheaper than the SOG ticket office. Also, prices seem to vary from base to base, so if you're near more than one (or go TDY), check around!

I know that WAY back on this thread someone had posted a shuttle schedule from January 2008, but I don't know of a more recent one. Not sure how much it changes throughout the year. Perhaps a recent visitor can post a more current one?

Not kidding, WAY BACK...try page 41 post 604. No one has posted anything more current. When I cross referenced it with my last schedule from '06 it was almost the same. Very few changes. If you really want to know for sure, e-mail SOG and ask them to send you a copy. They are quick to answer back and they can e-mail it to you.

Thanks

Thanks for the info on the tix and the schedule. One more quick question: about how big are the in-room fridges? My mom had some medical needs, including a rather large ice mat for her back (about 10x12 inches). I'm wondering if it will accomodate something like that.

It probably would. Are you talking about the fridge area or the freezer? If you mean the freezer, no. I remember it as being a small freezer area. Once again, check with the hotel. They can give you better details.

I was just there last night and I don't think that ice mat should be a problem. The refrigerator is "college dorm" sized and should fit that. I don't recall a freezer, though...

There is no DVD player in the room. There is also just a standard clock radio...nothing special.

We would have loved a DVD player just for that 5 am wake-up our ds gave us...would have been nice to pop in a DVD for him to fall back asleep to...instead, we had him jumping on our bed until we were forced to wake up! LOL

I have a question for SOG experts. If the buses don't start running till 0830
is it possible to get to DHS at rope drop? Anyone ever have trouble getting to a park at rope drop using SOG buses?

We have made it fine for the rope drop at DHS. No problems.

or you could take the ten minute walk earlier and pick up a Poly bus. truly only the one day for early EMH at AK did the busses NOT run on time.

I hope looking at the bus schedule helps you, but just remember that the SOG busses to the TTC are really great if you happen to want to go to a park, but miss one of the hourly busses. All you have to do is hop on the every-15-minute bus to the TTC and you can get on the monorail or on a bus for anywhere in the World directly from there.

And, the parking space that Shades' busses use at the TTC is right up front. It saves lots of steps at the TTC.

Once you get the hang of it, the Shades bus system is vastly superior to the regular Disney busses, in my opinion. The SOG busses are much more likely to be on time than the about-every-20-minutes Disney busses, and they are likely to be much less crowded at busy times.

Have a great trip.

Jack
