Kristie we will be there for Christmas also . We are doing SOG on 12/18 leaving on 12/21, The Wonder from 12/21 to 12/24 and returning to SOG from 12/24 to 12/27. We may leave on the 26th to get the dogs out of the kennel early. I don't like leaving them too long. This will be our first warm Christmas and everyone is looking forward to it.

Now I just have to decide when would be the best time of the year to go, I don't want to go when it's cold, I don't ski so that's not a big concern for me.
my husband went in march last year and he said one day it would be hot and sunny and the next it would be snowing! His pictures are amazing. I hear alot of people who get stationed there end up living there because they like it so much.

We were there last March and my memory isn't 100%, but I don't believe we had to pay anything for the crib. It was not a pack n play. It was a rolling stainless steel/metal (?) one. Hope that helps

I've been considering it for about two years now and I think I really want to go next year, I would love some opinions from anybody who has been there.
It was about 20+ years ago. I remember Garmisch, but don't remember exactly where we stayed. The ones I do remember where usually very nice - one at Cheimsee (sp?) was exceptionally nice - I believe it was an old German hotel, and very ornate and the rooms were huge!
Germany was awesome, and my favorite country in Europe. I would love to be stationed there again.
Once our DH is older we are going back to Germany. We want him to be able to remember it, so hopefully when he reaches his teen years he won't think in too uncool to go to Europe with Mom & Dad.

My family will be at SOG May 21-27. We were there the same time last year for the first time. We absolutely loved it. The place is beautiful and the weather was great. Anyone else going at the same time? We stayed in the old building right by the pool. When I made my reservations, I didn't ask for any particular section. Do you think if I called now and asked we would be put in the same section? We have 3 rooms reserved.

Watching Wishes from SOG

A poster on another board mentioned a spot on SOG property that allows a view of Wishes. Anyone with any experience with this? Would love to know where this "secret" location is as the other poster doesn't want to tell. I guess it wouldn't be a secret then . Thanks for any help.

I understand you have to put your initial deposit on your CC but can you send them so much each month before your vacation to pay it off?

The top level of the parking garage. It's not really a secret. It's been posted before (more than once).

Absolutely. Just call the reservations number and they will give you the address. We usually just send a check. It can take a little while to process though. They will send you a new e-mail confirmation showing the new deposit amount paid. We always have our room paid in full before we arrive.
