Thank you. I would rather have it paid in full before we arrive so this is good news!

Thanks. I did the same after seeing so many new questions popping up on page 1 the other day. (I think this thread was on page 7 ) Maybe if we all can keep an eye on this thread and give it a bump every now and then, we can assure it does not get lost forever.

Ok I have a question. We booked poolside rooms for our trip in April. I would rather be by the Magolia pool. Should we call and ask for that specific area?

Here's a question.. I have 6 people in my party. 4 adults, one 5 yr old and a 2 yr old who will be in a crib. I booked 2 rooms. Was that nessesary?? I was looking on the united we stand thread and a woman had 6 people in her party 2 adults 3 big kids and one crib child said she booked one room. How many people can fit in a room and does my 2 yr old count as a "person" . If I could save 500+ dollars on cancelling one room then I would much rather just have the one room . My husband and I could sleep on one bed, My mom and my 5 yr old could sleep in another bed, my mil in the pullout and the baby in the crib??

Yes, call reservations and have them place the request on the reservation that you want the Magnolia poolside. Not a guarantee that you will get it, but so far (knock on wood) I have always gotten what I have requested.

There's a difference between 2 adults and 4 adults. They didn't ask how many people when you booked the room? I would call, but I wouldn't want to stay in a room with that many people and only 1 bathroom. The rooms are a good size, but my guess is there's a limit on how many to a room. Rooms are usually double occupancy (adults). The woman who had two adults and 4 children is to me a typical family (larger than most) but two adults with children.

I don't know the answer, but I e-mailed SOG for the official answer. They should respond on Monday and I can post the answer then.

The website says 5 GUESTS per room. My guess is a "guest" means a person of any age. I could be wrong and that is why I have e-mailed for the official answer.

In the past we have done 3 adults and 2 kids (above age 6). It was pretty cramped. Bathroom rotations had to be executed like a ballet, but it was doable as long as everyone is considerate of others needs (and that did not always happen). When I say doable, I mean we managed, but the vacation would have been much better (less stressful) had we reserved 2 rooms rather than trying to save some money and crowd in one. If you do qualify for one room, just make sure you don't get a handicapped room. You need the sinks to be outside the room containing the toilet/tub with that many people.

I am SOOOO excited! I emailed SOG for an overflow rate, and I got a room! I finally got a room! ( I don't plan vacations far enough in advance to get a room at sog!)
So a few Questions...
1. Do rooms have a fridge, or can they be requested?
2. We have 2 adults, 5 children, and requested connecting rooms. Is there a way to bolt the second door so the kids cannot escape unnoticed?
3. How far a hike is it to the boat dock or monorail at the Poly? Everytime we've ever tried to go from the Poly to SOG to buy our tickets, we end up wandering lost in the woods for 2 hours!
Thanks!

Just trying to clear up a question that I have as I have gotten conflicting answers. I would like to purchase our tickets using a personal check at the ticket counter. We are active duty Air Force. The person at ticket sales who called me back said yes we could do that, but the person I emailed at the resort said no, but could cash a check at the front desk, does anyone know the answer to this question? Thanks for you help.

we will probably keep the second room (for my sanity to get some space away from my snoring MIL) but I would like to stilll know the answer. We also requested connecting rooms. I wonder if its first come first serve or if it goes by order?? Did anyone else request a connecting room and actually get it?

From other threads I've read, they can't guarantee connecting rooms but they do try to honor requests.
