Shades map

Thought I would repost this here since there has been so much recent conversation.
Some minor changes since they moved the coffee into the lobby area, Evergreens is back at location #26, and the spa is now near room 121.
Probably a few more, but room numbers are accurate.

Map

Just thought I'd add that the rooms with 3 numbers are in the Magnolia Wing (top right) and the rooms with 4 numbers are in the Palm Wing (attached to the parking garage). They aren't identified on the map.

Thank you so much! That map is exactly what I needed! Now just one quick question, in the magnolia wing, which are the rooms on the same level as the lobby? I had the first room after you passed through the walkway and it was very convenient!

200 level rooms are the same level as the lobby.

So, the 200 level rooms would be a close walk to pool?
Are these rooms with double sinks in bathrooms?
We have only stayed on 3 floor..miles away! Like being at AK.

I'd say anything in the 100's is a short walk to either pool.
We've only stayed in the Palm wing and didn't think the walk was bad from there, but we are all teens and adults which might make a difference.

As far as I know, the only 200 or 300 level rooms that have the double sinks are in the following corridors;
220-239/ 320-339
256-281/356-381
They are in the very back of the resort; so about as far a walk from the lobby as possible. We prefer the 220-239 rooms because they are close to both pools, and the hot tub, and once we learned to park outside at the golf clubhouse, not that far of a walk at all from the car.

Resort size

I like to share this to remind us that our Shades is not a huge resort.

So we are more than 45 days out now and no pre order form for tickets has been emailed. I emailed the ticket office and their response was very short saying I will get it about 30 days out. (Eek!) That doesn't give them much time to process it and me much time to prepare to book fast passes. Someone mentioned on the Facebook page to call them, but are they going to give me the same "sorry we'll send it around 30 days " response. Anyone have experience with this??

Really! I guess I'll have to give them a call then. Wonder why it was such a struggle for them to do it via email . Hm

Same. I called at my 42-day mark. I was initially told 30 days, but I politely reminded the rep that I needed tix before then so I could start making FP+ reservations at 30 days. They e-mailed the form, and I faxed it back. I now have my vouchers and an able to make FP+ reservations!

Free Dining

Does anyone else hate it when free dining is offered when you plan to go?

Seriously doubt it. Since they released them we haven't been able to find those prints anywhere, let alone discount.
