technically it's an extra wide twin.. a pair of toddlers that liked each other for more than ten seconds running could sleep fairly comfortably.

I seem to remember reading that the fold-out sofas were different depending on whether you were in the old or new section. One was bigger than the other, but I don't remember which. Am I imagining this? Anyone?

Bueller?

Perhaps some of the balconies below are obstructed, too. But not to the extent that those third-floor rooms are.

We're using 'Florida Tours', a sponsor of Dis boards. Being a sponsor I have high hopes they are reliable.

If you have stayed there, do you remember having a connecting door to the room nextdoor, whether or not you used it?
Good question ! We made 6 room ressies right after T/G '07 for pref. connecting. I've called to touch base a few times and altho tho it's noted on our ressies, however no one has been able to tell me which rooms -other than 1st floor near the pool. With 9 grands going, we are really counting on most being connected. CSR said SoG policy is not to assigned room #'s until appx 2-4 wks out, so we'll keep our fingers crossed.

So I have to ask:

Anybody had the Banana Foster Cheesecake at Evergreens yet? It sounds yummy.

Does anyone have any other favorites from the SOG restaurants that they would like to share with everyone?

The only input I have so far is the coffee from the Starbucks stand. I read mixed reviews about how it was before our trip. We loved the coffee...tasted great and was so thankful to get gourmet coffee before we hit the parks

The only restaurant we ate at SOG was Evergreens- we really liked it- and their foot of onion rings were good- but we had 8 people eating them and it didn't go very far. I will say that everything we had there was actually pretty good- the only thing I didn't care for was the pizza- I think it would have been good but they put so much cheese on it I was seriously choking on cheese. We did go to the ice cream shop there by the ticket sales and it was REALLY good and the prices were great as well especially for the fact that they make the ice cream there at SOG. enjoy your trip!!!

So do they take special orders for pizza? I'll ask for extra cheese!

The chicken quesadillas are AWESOME! I had them 2 nights in a row! And the chocolate cake is BEYOND WORDS!

And on the sofa issue...We had two rooms in the older section, and had two different types of sofa.
One room was a loveseat that folded out like you think of a fold out...

the other room is harder to describe. It was a full sized sofa, you pulled a tab on the bottom, and the cushion kind of folded UP INTO THE BACK is the only way i can think to describe how it folded out. And it was super comfy!

If I ever get the pictures off of my dead computer, I'll put them up!

Yep, just tell them what you want. We love the pizza and never seemed to have massive cheese. It was always just right...could be the other toppings we ordered.

We must have had the same cook. The cheese was nearly an inch thick on our pizza. I love cheese, but this was ridiculous. The onion rings are good with the yummy dipping sauces. I probably could have gobbled up the whole foot myself, but my family wanted some too.
