You will have a blast playing with your new toy. It's all trial and error. I can take about 20 shots to get one good one. Just buy a good card with lots of memory and just shoot, shoot, shoot.

1st SOG trip

We are planning our first SOG trip! We have been to Disney other times at other resorts, but now that my DD has enlisted we get to try this resort out. I am so proud of her and so excited for this trip- it has been 3 years since our last family trip to Disney! Also since she has just enlisted(February) I am not sure when we will get another family trip! She will be going to basic later this year then 8 months of tech school, then college, then -who knows!!!!!
I have read all through this thread looking for ideas/tips but just wondering if anyone has others! I have figured out we need to take advantage of the in room amenities and bring some breakfast foods/ snacks and we have made 2 reservations at the poly.......any other ideas? We are a family of 5 with our youngest being 11 so we are pretty mobile! TIA

The best advice is just relax and have a good time! SoG is a great resort, and the location is great, too. We always ask for a MK facing room, and have always gotten it. You can't see the MK, but you can see the fireworks over the trees, which is nice. We also like the old wing better than the new, but that's just us. It feels closer to the entrance.

I suggest walking to the Poly monorail or to the TTC as much as possible. I personally love the walk. It is so relaxing after a long day. The SoG buses are really convenient, but I just like to walk.

Congrats to your dd! Just remember to be flexible! Dh has been in for 16 years, and the educational opportunities are amazing. He got his BS and MD through the military. For someone willing to work hard, there are endless opportunities in the military. But you have to play the game, work really hard, and be flexible. You can't go in to it thinking that it will always be easy. There will be deployments, there may be many over and over. They may be to dangerous places. You may get sent to any number of places all over the world for years at a time. I've known a lot of people who joined with this rosey outlook of what it was going to be like, and then after 4 deployments to the middle east, and unaccompanied tours to Korea, were just sick of the whole thing. But that could be your path. Just have eyes wide open, and look forward to the adventure.

Ok so I need to know where these firework/MK side rooms are lol. People ask for them and I'm always stumped. We don't have a category for them, and I have an idea.....but I really want to know! If you guys don't know then I might as well give up lol

We have tried numerous times to pre-order our tickets at SOG with no return calls. Should we fax the form or continue calling? Our trip is less than a week away..

We also enjoy the walk and use this route almost exclusively during our trips. (Except when heading to HS, DD, or AK.
