Well, I have just lost my mind. We just got back from 4 days at WDW, we stayed at pop and my MIL and SFIL went and made our lives miserable, so I have booked to go back 8/31-9/3 and booked SoG with the 2 specials they have. We got 3 nights for $209.

I just hope DH is ok with this. We had just discussed going to the beach, but I want a WDW do over. It is the week after his birthday, so I will have to let him decide.

Since there has been no update yet about whether there will be an extension of the Salute tickets, we better get in another trip while we can

I'm guessing I can go back and make rooms requests after I talk to him about it?

You haven't lost your mind; do what makes you happy. Under the circumstances, I'm sure your DH will be okay with the vacation do over. The SoG specials are great....you can't beat those rates ! Enjoy !

No, you sure can't. Pop was going to be about $241 for 3 nights and even with parking, SoG is cheaper this time. Just have to see what DH says about it.

Where you at Shades recently?? I checked in someone who had that room request and we had a little conversation about why-it made sense

That's exactly what I did, I just need to know its what he wants to do, so if it isn't I can get the deposit back. He was tired after duty yesterday, so I will hit him up again tonight. He just doesn't know I've booked yet...lol

Thanks all for the great info!

I know everyone here will understand and since I'm about to bust, DH passed his PT test this morning, so he gets to re-enlist! I am so proud and so excited, we may just move this reservation over to WL, if I can get DH excited about this trip, I guess he wasn't because he was worried about this test.

So glad I found this thread....While my husband and I are staying at Pop in September I am already planning for our family vacation next year and plan on staying at Shades. We stayed there back in '06 and loved it. We didn't have any of the bus problems or room problems people seem to have.

Congrats on the PT test. That is one thing I do NOT miss about being in the Army. I miss almost everything else, but not PT or PT tests. Of course, that is why I have become a bit Pooh-sized over the years since retirement.

Smart lady - pick your moments to "discuss" with him!

I know the feeling! We only go every few years because we are on the West Coast. Once you get it all booked and planned it is so hard to just wait! The DIS is a good place to pass the time!

Glad it's all working out for you and your soldier. You both deserve it!

We stayed in 2004 and loved it - I thought the buses were right on time, and I loved having our room near the parking garage, but facing the back ponds. The only reason we haven't been back is that we bought DVC the next year.

We are looking forward to a night or two at SOG next year prior to both our sons and their families joining us at SSR for a week!
