If you don't want to be by the pool but want to be close to the lobby, request 2nd floor of the Palm wing. And if you want to be more specific you can ask for rooms 2101 - 2106. It is straight through and the same level as the lobby. These are our favorites.

JudyAL - Your in August too!! We are going the 19th? what's your dates? Ihave never stayed in SOG but we requested 3 rooms. One for me, DD and my neice, (they are both 22), one for my son (21) and his friend, and one for my friends. I am sure I could of squeezed all of us in two rooms but at the great price it is so not worth it.

I have been torn which section to stay in as well but I am going to end up requesting what is closer to the lobby which I hope is not by pool. lol
I will have to take a look at the map Jusero put up for all of us. It really shows the whole lay of the land..
My DBF and I have been saying the same thing about the weather, we are in PA. It is ridiculously hot here, supposed to hit 102 on Saturday here. We keep saying "well at least we will be prepared for FL in AUG! LOL" Although, I was there once before in August and it's a different kind of heat/hot. So we'll see

As far as rooms go, I love the Palm wing. We try to stay on the 2nd floor so it is on the same floor as the lobby.

that's why we always go in the summer. It's hot and humid here in MA - mid 90's, nasty, gross. I figure mid 90's in WDW beats being at home. It's more humid, but it's still hot.

Exactly!! I'd choose to be in WDW dealing with the heat anyday over being here.

It's really sad that it has been hotter in many places way north of FL than it has there. I have this weather gadget on my desktop and I have the temp here and the temp in WDW on there and OMG it has been sometimes this week 97 here and 78 there lol. I keep saying to my DBF...you know it's hot when it's hotter than FLORIDA this time of year.

We're hovering around 100 here in central Indiana, and last I checked, WDW was about 10 degrees cooler.

After reading the brouhaha that is the ".69 cent breakfast" thread, I didn't dare ask this there...but are there toasters available at Shades? I'll happily bring my own loaf of bread and jar of PB, but I'd love the option to toast bread or bagels for a quick breakfast on the run each morning.

unfortunately no. No toasters in room and no microwaves in room. Microwave in the laundry room though. We tend to either grab something from express cafe OR if we've planned well, we have a bag of bagels (non-toasted) or boxed cereal. And fruit or yogurt etc.

I think with all the rain that WDW has had and the TS/hurricane that went through last week has kept the temps down at WDW. We are in Alabama and hit record highs of 106 and 109 on Friday and Saturday. It has been a little better this week, but still much hotter than it was earlier in June. I can hardly wait for the end of August...lol

Laundry Rates?

Hi, sorry for asking such a silly question, but I can't seem to find the answer here so far.

Can someone please tell me the current prices for the laundry facilities?

Thanks so much! looking forward to my stay in one month!

We don't mind being by the pool at all. Didn't use it last year but may do so this August. Are the rooms on the Palm side the same size as the ones on the Magnolia side? I'm more interested in being comfortable and not bumping into anyone when turning around in the room and being on lobby level so we don't have to deal with elevators.

ticket voucher question

Hi! We just got our form through email to order our park passes. From what I understand, they will be available upon check in. I believe we have to go to activate them at guest services at one of the parks or downtown disney, is that right? Also, can we activate them the day BEFORE we are going to go the parks so that we don't have to waste time when we are trying to make rope drop? Thanks for any advice you may have!

kiddie pool and driving question

Does anyone know if there is an actual kiddie pool at SOG? Looking for my two non-swimming little ones to get some water fun!

Also, we will have a car for one day in which we will be driving to hollywood studios. They open at 9 that day. Can anyone give me an idea of what time we should leave SOG to get there, park and be in position for rope drop?

thanks again for all your help!

You activate them at guest relations before you enter the first park are going to on the first day. I'm not aware that there is somewhere in DTD to activate them.

There is a kiddie pool next to the millpond pool.
