Has anyone eaten at Mangino's for the Prime Rib/Surf & Turf Monday night dinners this month? We are thinking of going on our arrival night, wanted to get some reviews.

But.... why were you eating in your room with a whole "World" of options?
It was about 11:30 p.m. and we are old farts who turn in early.

Fun!! 11:30 is not early. The first day is exhausting Speaking as someone about your age... you are young, vibrant and beautiful!

I have not really wandered over to the pool area yet. I was planning on doing that today, but got sidetracked trying to hunt down new shoes. Long story.

I think someone here at Shades was trying to say hi the other day. I have a lime green hidden Mickey on my door and someone moved it. If it was you and you were saying hi ... HI back!

I know it was discussed earlier in this thread somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. What range of room numbers is "most convenient" to getting in and out? I assume we will walk over to the Poly for the monorail, as well as take the SOG bus when needed. Going with three little boys and a stroller, so the less walking, the better.
Also, what is the view from these rooms?

It looks like I'm going to be taking a trip with a couple of friends and I think we are going to stay at SoG. It will be me and 2 of my best friends and one child (2 years old) and I need room suggestions. Would you choose a standard room or poolside with private patio? We'll be going for 3 nights in late June and I would at the very least need a ADA room with tub.

I've only stayed at Shades once and we were in the Palm section, but I am open to suggestions from those that visit regularly. I want to go ahead and book before all the good rooms are gone.

Your mickey hugs might have worked. our trip is probably back on, in some form or another. Our daughter just got accepted into DCP so we're now forced to get her down there in January. Coincidence? I think not. Mickey Magic is more like it.

I know. I'm not sure what the whole plan is. I don't really have many details, she's a grownup, she'll tell me I guess. LOL. But I anticipate getting her down there and settled by myself and then a few weekends later doing our mini trip. Her move in I think is during marathon weekend and it's a bad weekend for my son to be out of school since he has midterms the following week...so no go.

Yeah!!! I loved my time as a WDWCPer. I have copies of my school photo with Mickey in front of the Castle & diploma hanging on my wall at work. I always get asked about it and I love telling folks about the program. You'd think it would be more well known, but I rarely meet anyone who has heard of it. I wish the Internet had existed back then. LOL

Does she know what she'll be doing yet?
