I think the parking sitch is becoming a SOG Disney World Pay-For-Parking Urban Legend. I'm going to run it by snopes to see what the real deal is before we leave for our next trip .

I am having the same problem.

Use this chart http://www.shadesofgreen.org/roomrates.pdf to know your rate. Add an additional $15 for each extra adult.

Small change in topic, sorry. Does anyone have a link to the SOG resort map? I saw the one on Allears but that one is done prior to the renovation and doesn't include the new wing.
I'm trying to find actual room numbers for our location request when I make our reservations for next March.
In April we stayed in the new wing over looking the Magnolia golf course I believe. It was at the very end of the hall away from the elevators and parking garage. I know, quite a hike but sooo quiet. We really liked it and want that location again.
If anyone can help I would appreciate it! Thanks!

Go back to page 41, post 604. Someone posted the map that you are given at check-in.

KatRob, thanks so much! Thats exactly what I was looking for. I don't know how well it works to request room numbers but I'm sure the SOG reservationist/room assigner will do their best. I've always found the staff to be very helpful.
Looking forward to March 09.

I'm not sure how much the requests help or not. I have asked for certain floors and not gotten them. I have asked not to be put past a certain room number due to bad knees and not wanting to take a handicap room and still been at the end of the hall.

Good luck!

No, the new rooms don't overlook the parking garage. The map is kind of confusing. The manilla colored rooms are ground level with a patio. The ones that are around the parking garage have a view of the golf course. The new section is 5 stories, so the green rooms with the 5000's room numbers are actually the top floor.

Response SOG to parking

I got an email response this morning from SOG about the parking fees. Here it is:


We have a $5.00 parking fee per night. Unfortunately, Shades of Green guests are not eligible for the free parking at the parks. The only one you can bypass is the Magic Kingdom as our resort is located in the Magic Kingdom resort area.


Kindest Regards,

-deleted name-

Shades of Green reservations

1.888.593.2242



"Serving those who Serve"



So I am guessing some of the Disney toll collectors are not charging us though.
I got my tickets today and I saved some money by getting them at our Guard's MWR office. I can now fund my parking.LOL I just wish I could fund everybody's!

Then of course, there is always the Nick Hotel... oops, did I say a bad word?


yeah, same here. We wanted to stay at SOG but the values are so much cheaper, especially for the amount of time we spend in the room, all star just worked better.

Question Garden Gallery breakfast prices

Can anyone just back tell me how much the Garden Gallery breakfast buffet is for adults? I'm thinking it's $9 per person (which doesn't include a beverage, correct?). TIA!!

I'm not sure how much the breakfast buffet costs, but I know I have never paid that much. I'm too tight to spend that kind of money and we do eat there most mornings.
