I agree with this assessment. The bedding and pillows are solid middle-of-the-road quality, in my opinion. Nothing bad whatsoever, but not as nice as the luxury bedding I once experienced at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

If you do bring your own, be sure to put it in the closet before leaving the room for the day or the pillow may not be there later. My niece's was even in a kids pillowcase and it vanished from one hotel. There should 5 pillows in the room (one in closet for pull-out) but you can always ask for extras.

This morning I finalized our plans and booked our stay at SOG! I freaked out at first b/c the online ressie board said that my days were booked, but it was the orange colored days, not the red, and so I called SOG to talk to someone and had no problems making my ressies through them! I'm so excited! We're doing the split stay at SOG and the Poly! I wish it was August already!

thats a good tip, I plan on bringing my own pillow and would hate to see it go bye-bye, its too expensive to lose.

ADR question

I forgot. Can I make all of my ADR's at the 180 day mark of the first ADR or do I have to call each day to get them all in?

TIA

Mini marina?

Where is the "mini marina" located on SOG property. I don't think I've ever seen it.

Behind where the lobby area is, one floor below is a courtyard area and the marina is in that area. We've walked by it multiple times and I've never seen anyone using them.

If you are at the buffet place, one of the big windows overlooks it. Basically, remote control boats. Its a great way to entertain the kids when they finish eating before us. "hey kids, watch the boats!"

I see alot of people mentioning rooms, but I haven't anyone mention the fact that the 2nd and 3rd rooms have to pay the category 2 rate. Is this the case?

Heres the info from SOG site:
CATEGORY 1: E-1 through E-5 (E-1 thru E-5 Sponsor and dependents
will receive the rate that applies to Category #1. Any additional sponsored
rooms will receive the rate that applies to Category #2)

Also I called today and explained that when we go it will be My husband, me 2 kids and my mom and brother. I explained to her that my son was 3 and she said then 6 of us can stay in the room. 2 on each bed and 2 on the sofabed. I read here on the thread that it was under 3 but the lady said 3 and under. Anyone know about this. I really dont see how they will know because we can all fit , but I still want to know the correct rules

You can make them all. Oh, what an exciting day that is, too.

Simply-put, if the additional rooms are meant for non-ID card holders, you will pay the Cat 2 rate for those rooms (as it's assumed you and your immediate family will occupy a single room).

When we stayed in December, we were told we could not use the 180+10 and had to call at the 180 day mark for each day we wanted an ADR.

Looks like the SOG website got a bit of a facelift. The content doesn't appear to be changed much. Just a slightly new look as far as I can tell.

I was faced with the same question . When we go it will be my dh, myself and 2 kids (2 and 5) and 2 grandmoms. Although we can legally fit into one room , dd2 sleeping in a crib, with one bathroom and such tight quarters we opted for the 2 rooms connecting (hopefully). You can also do a family suite but in our case we'd be paying more money for it.
We had to pay the cat 2 rate for our second room.
