Not sure about others' more recent experience at EMH with small (<10yo) kids.

Hi everyone!

First post in a while - I am now SusanMomOf3

I got official permission from DH to take a Disney vacation for CHRISTMAS! (Before you warn me about the crowds (like all my FB friends did), it's the only time we can go... can't afford to do Christmas all out AND a Disney trip later in the year, so they have to be combined. Disney = our Christmas present.)

So first on my todo list was to book a room at SoG... I could only book the 18th - 23rd. So then we'll split our stay and go somewhere else... that's going to be fun planning. Second on my list was to check out tourguidemike.com, and now I'm patiently waiting for my discount code in my email. And then I came here - the disboards. I think I got my priorities pretty straight.

I'm so excited - I don't care what else we do for the summer or fall. But of course, y'all understand THAT feeling.

Anyway, SoG rocks... love the pics and conversation!

On the other hand, they're apparently not losing business. But I'd be much happier if they had a well run food court where we could grab food any time during the day. I don't need a sit down, disney has plenty. What I need at my resort is good food, quickly.

But I do encourage people to check out the golf food stand by the quiet pool. It's a bit hard to find, but they have really good items. I had a sausage sub last time that was to die for. Better than I've had up here at a sausage cart. DS I think had a hot dog, and dh and I both had beer (In a bottle, not stupid swill from at evergreens) I think they had a lot of other items.
Thanks for the info about the golf food stand.. I was not even aware that it was there until this year. I just booked poolside at the Magnolia pool for next spring break so it is great to know that something good is right there...

We were there in April and they asked for "1 key per family" at the entrance to the Monorail. No one else asked for anything going in to MK or at the park itself. It seems to be different for different people.

We're doing a split stay also, we couldn't get a suite for the very end of our stay. We will have 4 kiddos then (10, 7, 4, and 3 ish months) so we will probably stay at the Cabins. They are a great value for a Disney resort. We stayed there last time, and we all loved the extra space.

it's actually hard to find because it faces out onto the golf course and you have to actually walk out of the pool area and around it to see it. At first glance, I thought it was the back of a maintenance shed, but it's not.

AAFES Expansion?

Heard a rumor the AAFES store was being renovated. Anyone there recently notice any changes?

I was there a month ago and the guy working there said that they were starting an expansion "Any Day". He said it will be twice as big as it currently is..

We love going over Christmas and it really isn't as bad as everyone says, but we don't have children, so maybe that makes a difference, until the day after Christmas until a few days after New Years.

Just like the rest of the year, we head to the parks early, take a midday break and return in the evenings, because the Christmas lights are incredible.

If you're going to book any TS restaurants, make sure to do it quickly, butother than that, I wouldn't worry.

Anyone else thinking about going to MNSSHP in September? We will be at Beach Club and were considering going on September 25th which is a night offering the military promotion. I know we have to buy our tickets there so I guess I'm wondering if I'm taking a big risk by waiting to buy our tickets or if there are a certain number of military tickets reserved for the party? Part of me really wants to go and part of me is trying to convince myself that if we don't get to go, I shouldn't sweat it because DD is only going to be 4. I thought it might work out well for us to attend as it is the second day of our stay and DD and DS will still be on Central Time so if we take it easy and stay out of the parks, they might be feeling well enough for a late night.


I guess I'll ask over on the official thread as well.

Aw, me too. We were in the parks until about 1 a.m. that night. We closed down the EMH at Magic Kingdom. Didn't know you worked there. How great is that??
