Yea.. I put it on my reservation and I call and I have to ask again at check in at which time they actually look and see I have a request. I don't think they pay attention to special requests. At least that's been my experience. However, so far they have always been able to get me on the 2nd floor of the palm wing. Not as close to the lobby as requested but at least the same wing/floor.

I know they say they cannot guarantee requests; however, our requests are listed on our reservation confirmation.

In a new review on TripAdvisor someone said they liked the feature of unlimited use of the pool at the Polynesian.

Wow!

Why oh why do people think they can pool hop? It always amazes me when the subject comes up from someone that stays on property and pool hops from their value or moderate to a deluxe, much less someone staying at SOG thinking they can use WDW resort pools.

I agree! The post was written as if they really think it's a legit benefit. Like EMHs.

I always request one specific room, but have never been able to get it. However, they have always been able to put me pretty close to that area, so I can't complain.

I always call to check my ressies a few weeks before going and then when I check in I always ask if they were able to get me my room request.

Besides the fact that it's wrong, I would think pool hopping would be so inconvienent .

shades of green busses

Do the SOG busses leave early enough to reach the parks in time for rope drop during morning EMHs?

It is the best place to stay!
Huge rooms.
Although people complain about Shades it being so big, it's one of the smallest resorts on property.
Escape from Disney at the end of the day. Some will complain it's not Disney enough.
Food is meh. But, we almost never eat at Shades so we don't care
Price is right.
Dependable buses. They run on a schedule as opposed to just showing up like when we stayed at POFQ. And Shades people seem much more respectful at bus stops IMO.

Just to name a few reasons we keep going back!

Yes and ditto for the late EMH returns.

Almost 100% sure no discounts in June or July. Supply and demand. Usually very good discounts in the slower times of year. We paid 50% of room rate several Octobers ago.

Yes, as long as you order your tickets before you arrive and link them in the My Disney Experience app or website. I know SoG has made it possible to order in advance just for this reason. Even if you wait until you get there, you could set up your FPs all at once for the duration of your stay after you get your tickets.
