Just amazed at the size of this resort! I don't know what wing we are in, maybe Palm? 4th floor, golf course view if that tells you anything.
it will be awesome if they do the Aafes, it is sooo small

The resort is AMAZING isn't it?! We've been going since it first opened in 1994 and went through the whole renovation with them, what a transformation! So glad you like it!!

Oh, which SOG discount is that? We got the Endless Summer at 25% off, tiered by rank. It isn't much more then $89 per night, but, I like to save where I can. lol

That will be a drink for my DD (22) when we go down next month. She loves sweet drinks! ?? how much are drinks? Are they considerably cheaper than at other restaurants or same prices. Here in NJ that drink would be around $7 - $8 at like a chain restaurant

Just looking for comparison? Oh and do they have beer on tap?

I must have missed something...is there a bar in the lobby at SOG?

The only place I have gotten drinks was years ago at Evergreens and in 2010 at Mangino's.

This sounds great!

Going on now through Sept 30th there are 4 day tickets for $138 for hopper or waterparks or for $165 you can get both. Tickets expire on the 30th of Sept so you have until the 27th of Sept to get them and use all 4 days on them.

This promo has been going on for quite some time and everyone is hoping it will be extended again.
