It might be nice to know when other SoG Dis fans are going to be there. It would be nice to put a face with a name.

I will be there March 4 to 10 with my DH and my wonderful sister. Then we will be back in June 11 to 23 with our DD, DGS (6) and DGD (13). Maybe we could wave in the halls.

I'll be there 10/4-10/9, then we're off to cruise on the Wonder.

It'll be me, DH, DD10, DS7, DD3, and my mom.

Then of course, there is always the Nick Hotel... oops, did I say a bad word?

Are the rates really going up toward the end of the year? They usually don't do that until the beginning of each year. It was $103 last month. The one thing you have to consider is that there is NO TAX added on top of each night's stay. I know when we used to stay for $99/night we figured out that it was the same as staying at the all-star resort for $78/night rate+tax. And the rooms at SOG are A LOT roomier than the value resorts!!! If you are talking value, I would recommend SOG.

You would have to ask when you make a reservation, but once we stayed in a room the had a 3/4 wall that left a sitting area just before the sliding glass door. That was the area where the pull-out sofa was. It is possible that it was a "handicap" room. (I know we stayed in one of those.) That made it possible for my older ones to quietly watch television while the younger one slept. I don't know if that would help, but you might want to ask about it.

This summer we are trying POR. We've decided to surprise our twins on Christmas Day and fly down to Disney for a warm holiday vacation! I'm tossing around the idea of us staying at SOG for that trip. Have any of you stayed there over Christmas? Is it beautifully decorated like the other resorts would be?

Also, what are your thoughts on the pool, and is there an arcade? (Or is there one at the Poly to use?) Our boys LOVED the arcade at POP, even though they spent only an hour or so total of our 10 days in it!

We're a little nervous about two things at SOG - the food choices (POP food court was perfect for our family!) and also the pool. Is it okay?

Thank you!
Kristie
We just got back from a trip in Jan and the holiday decor was still about...BEAUTIFUL. As it is every year when we visit SOG. One of the pools is heated. If this is what you were thinking, I know I saw people swimming in it when we were there in January and the Floridians were FREEZING. There are two pools, and one is shaped like mickey. There is also a small arcade (about the same size as the one in POP). The restaurant has a VERY REASONABLY PRICED buffet each night. I don't know about your boys, but my kids LOVE to be able to help themselves. There is also take-out pizza at the bar if you prefer. I think you will be very happy with all it has to offer.
