Whats the best idea for transportation each day?

We are visiting each park on our upcoming visit and staying at SoG. I know for the days we go to MK and Epcot, were going to walk to the Poly to ride the monorail, but I was just wondering about the other days. If I want to be there for rope drops what do you recommend? SoG busses or something else? And if its something else please explain in detail, because this is the first time were not using a car to the park.

Question Reservations

Does SOG not have a 24hr reservation line? I work odd hours and every time we've tried to call to make reservations we get a message that the office is closed but they don't give hours they are open. We can't do it online because we need multiple rooms.

If the timing works for our schedule we use SOG buses, but we have also walked to the poly many times and ridden the buses from there for both AK and DHS as well as Downtown Disney.

From the website: The reservation phone line hours will be Monday – Friday 0800 – 2100 hours, Saturday 0800 – 1700 hours and closed Sunday and all Federal Holidays.

Here's the link to that page: http://www.shadesofgreen.org/reservations.htm

You can also ride the SOG bus to the TTC and take buses to AK & HS from there. They run pretty frequently.

But I sure am happy to hear it's down to under 30! Of course, I have it on my calendar in the kitchen, at work and in my phone. But it's nice to see it here too.

Mine got stuck too. I just remade it and deleted the funky one.

Under 30 days - - I am sooooo jealous.

Have a great trip!

I remember someone saying they were going to cancel SOG and go to the POLY in Sept just so you know the Volcano Feature Pool closed 9/9/2013- 9/20/2013

Sigh, I have a ticker, but I got in trouble so it won't show up for a bit. I was a bad, bad girl
