Does anyone know if SOG has Cake Delivery? Or if the other hotels will deliver to the SOG? There's an interesting thread in the restaurant forum about cakes. But I didn't see any listing for SOG.

Other resorts won't deliver cakes to SOG, because it's not a Disney resort. SOG hosts weddings and other special events and they have a catering staff. They might be able to make a cake or let you know who can deliver one to SOG. Give them a call or email. I'm sure other people would appreciate knowing if this service is available, so could you let us know what you find out?

I am quite sure that I saw a sign at the Express Cafe that said cakes were available.

I was talking with a friend about possibly our two families hitting Disney (my DS and her DD are the best of friends, as the two of us are). Could we reserve a room for her at SOG when we go or is that strictly limited to family?

You can sponsor up to three rooms. You just have to be there to check them in with your ID. They can pay themselves though. Same goes for tickets. We've done it a few times. Have fun.

You can order from GF which has a fantastic bakery. It is not far to walk to the Poly, ride the monorail over to the GF or you can just walk over enjoying the view along the lagoon. Gosh SOG has a wonderful location.

Cakes

I know a couple of years ago when we were there for a rehersal dinner I had to go to Publix in Windermere to get a special cake. I don't know why they picked that one, but I drove to get the cake. It was a baseball cake for the father of the groom.

Does Shades of Green have wireless internet or service or only in the rooms ? I am brining my laptop and probably have a little bit of work to do in the evening. Hope it is reliable ! Anyone know if they charge per day ?

The first post of this thread does an excellent job of explaining the internet service available at SOG.

How much to leave for Room TIP?

We're preparing for our trip next week, and want to get my "Housekeeping" envelopes ready. Does anyone here have any suggestions on how much to leave daily for the maid?

we did the standard $1 per person per day.
And the housekeping was awesome!
One day we were still in the room, and so told her we were ok for the day, she still came in and changed the towels and trashbags.

Fishing/Discounts???

Does anyone know if the Dale Earnhardt driving experience gives a military discount? Also, I know there is a military discount for tee times at the Magnolia and Palm golf courses, but are there any fishing excursions or other "MAN-LIKE" activities that you can book through the Shades? Bottom line: my husband is the anti-Disney and is going to be miserable, I need as many man distractions as I can find to keep him from making DD and I miserable too. I wish there was a Hooters on Disney property, I'd have no problem keeping him occupied.

parking question

We will be leaving in just 25 days for the Shades of Green ...

I have a rental car for the last three days ...

Does Shades of Green charge to park there if you are a guest ???

Will they give us a parking pass for the parks like other disney resorts do???

Now that I see so many complaints about the bus service in the AM I am worried ... should I just get the car for the week and forget the bus for EMH's. We are big park openers ... I like to get up early even on vacation.

I think you mean Richard Petty Experience. Don't have an answer for that but you can call 1•800•BE•PETTY for information. There are discounted greens fees, I don't remember what they are though.

$5 per day and yes parking is free at the theme parks. We usually rent a car and it depends on circumstance whether we drive or ride the bus. I think the buses are OK most of the time -- especially to the TTC.
