Did I miss the boat?

Usually there is a 40% off discount in September - we've used it for the past 2 or 3 years happily. I looked and this time there is only one short period from 9/28 to 10/3 with the discount. Did they have one and now shorten it, or was this it for this year? Any chance of them lengthening it? I saw the discount in August that includes breakfast and I guess I may end up taking that (better than nothing) but we don't do full breakfast. I'd rather have a room discount.

Can you please PM me info on this? We usually stay on site when we go for 5+ nights and at SOG for 2-3 night stays but decided we wanted to go for a week next year for NYE and don't feel like paying the Contemporary prices for that time frame. I am bummed that we can't get the MB's and FP+ but if there is a work around, I would love to hear it! Thank you!

I was checking prices and we're considering trading out a night at SOG for a disney resort for one night. If we were to book the 19th at port of orleans for just the one night, and then check in at SOG the following day, would we get Mickey bands and be able to do FP+ For the full time we're staying at disney, even though we'll be at SOG for the next 5 days?

Do you know how far in advance we can fill this form out? We are going down for a week next year but not until December 2014. Just wondering if it's too early to do ours.

I think the website said 2 weeks before your reservation.

Couple quick questions.

When I've stayed at Disney resorts in the past, I've ordered water/diapers/etc. from Amazon or Costco and had it shipped to the resort, then picked it up when I arrived. Has anyone done this at Shades? Is it just as easy?

Also, will I automatically be receiving the ticket order form in my email, or should I email the Shades staff about it?

And lastly, does anybody know if the Magnolia Spa accepts Disney gift cards?

Thanks!

Not very far in advance...2-3 weeks prior to your arrival.

Most usually receive the ticket order form automatically via email anywhere from 2-4 weeks prior to arrival. (Last year, I received it two weeks prior and this year was four weeks.) However, some have had to send Shades an reminder email.

I don't think the Magnolia Spa accepts Disney gift cards...but the best way to find out is to give them a call!

We are going to Disney in 30 days! It's our first trip ever for me, my husband and two kids ages 11 and 10. We have sweet friends who are in the service and are taking us with them to disney. We are getting the 4 day park hopper pass. Will we be able to get fast passes once we get to Disney and check in? I think our friend will buy the tickets once we get there. I know four days is not that much time to see all that we can see in the parks but just the fact that we are going is amazing. We will be at shades of green 7 nights and will rest on the off days and see downtown disney! We are so excited

It is a really nice service they started a couple years ago.
Details are: A couple weeks before your vacation you will get an email from SOG (ticket office) with a form to buy tickets attached. Complete and return the form. When you check in your tickets will be ready at the front desk so you don't have to go to the ticket office. You do have to provide a CC number in advance (by fax or email) and that might cause anxiety for some people.
Fast & easy!

Yes, you can do this. Make sure it has the name of the military sponsor who booked the room and if there is anyway to add the arrival date and/or confirmation number for the reservation that helps. I recommend not doing it too early, if you can schedule it to arrive 1 or 2 days before you do that would be best. That way it is held at the mail room behind the front desk for your arrival and not stored with bell services or the warehouse.
