Thanks so much...but unfortunately those dates are bookends to the ones I need. The date that I am having a hard time getting is actually Sept. 25th! So for now I have two reservations...for an ADA room Sept. 24th and 25th and then a regular 2Q room for the remaining nights. I did call and put them on a hold list for the other two nights for a regular room. Anybody done that before? I was told they would call if it came through, and of course I continue to keep checking myself.

Interesting. Nope never done and honestly as with any hotel, I wouldn't rely on them and like you I would keep checking myself

split stay questions

New poster, WDW planning vet--

This is our 4th trip to the World, but first time staying at SOG. We are doing a split stay YC/SOG/Universal.

Using ME to get to YC. Is the best way to check in to SOG to have DH taxi with luggage from YC to SOG? Or do we all need to be there for early check in? Can he leave the bags at SOG with Bell Services?

Going from SOG to Universal (planning to stay onsite there)--Will a van sized taxi fit a family of 5 plus luggage? Is this the cheapest way to go, or should we plan to rent a minivan for that part of our vacation?

TIA

The YC should be able to transfer your bags to SOG and bell services will store them for your arrival at SOG. So you could go to a park and go to SOG later on check in day. Yes you can also preregistrater early at SOG and bell services can store your bags till you get back after heading out to a park from SOG. It's up to you. Not sure about a taxi it depends on how much luggage you have.

I am pretty sure that Disney WILL NOT transfer the luggage from a Disney owned resort. We had to taxi over to CSR years ago when we did a split stay...SOG first. You should probably call about that but I am pretty sure the answer will be that they don't. You could have YC store it for you then you can catch a taxi over later in the day to SOG.

taxi to universal?

Hello, I know SOG offers a shuttle to Universal but does anyone know how much it would cost to take a taxi there? Thank you!

Thanks guys!

I was pretty sure YC would not transport luggage for us, but that would have been perfect .

I guess I'm asking if the kids and I can head to a park (likely waterpark or Disney Quest) the morning we check out of YC while DH takes a taxi to SOG to check in there? Then he would meet us at the parks, and we would have our room ready later in the afternoon/evening? Does that make sense?

This is from the SOG website:

Universal Studios - Shuttle transportation is available from Shades of Green to Universal Orlando Resort for a nominal round trip fee of $ 10.00 per adult and $ 5.00 per child. Under 4 is free. Advanced reservations are required

Who is the service member, you or DH? You don't need to all be present at check in, just the service member. So if it is DH, then your scenario would work fine. Just send him to do the check in.

I've actually checked in many times without DH, and never had a problem! Doesn't relate to this question, but just want to throw it out there in case anyone else is worried! I have my dependent ID and have never had a problem checking in. Thank goodness, since he's rarely able to make the whole trip (if at all) with us!

Our last trip was the same way--DH made it for the last 4 days of our 12 day trip. We didn't stay at SOG that trip, but I did visit twice to pick up tickets for Disney and Universal, so I wouldn't think checking in would be different with my ID.

So looking at taxi for check in day, and likely renting a car when we move to Uni. for our last few days. Anyone rented onsite at SOG? I remember the rental car desk in the lobby. Or is it cheaper to go to CCC to rent? I really miss the days when we were stationed within driving distance

Stinks when they can't make the whole thing! One trip he was denied leave because they had something big coming up - and then the government shut down happened, so he was just stuck home alone.

We haven't rented from that desk, but I've priced it and its been reasonable. We just ended up getting one at the airport for the whole trip, but Alamo seems reasonable wherever you pick up! There is also a branch at the Dolphin (or Swan?) if you want to compare prices!

Has any one tried the shades of Green sunrise package?

I just called to request the palm wing for our upcoming trip and they asked me if I wanted to add the breakfast buffet to our reservation for $10 a night. Since there are are 3 of us it sounded like a good deal. Has anyone had this package, if so was it worth it?

You won't go away hungry from the breakfast buffet. It has a pretty good variety of your breakfast basics, and I doubt you could get that amount of food for $3.33 per person anywhere else on or off property. We did a Sunrise package several years ago which included the daily breakfast buffet. DH has to have "real" food (bacon, sausage, eggs, etc.) before hitting the parks, so it was worth it to us.
