Even though I got the email about preordering tickets, we've decided to purchase our tickets here at the MWR so we will have them to take with us.

As far as the room discount goes, we booked with the 40% off (for our entire trip), but the very next day the discount was decreased on the website so I don't know what was up with that. I guess we were lucky to get two rooms at 40% off, certainly would not have went through the trouble of checking out then back in to get the discount if they suggested that to me.

Everyone going in the next couple of weeks, what time are you guys planning to arrive? This will be our first year arriving at SOG before the official check-in time, so interested to see how that goes.

We'll be arriving late afternoon, so I'm hoping our room will be ready. We managed to get the 40% discount too. Seems like they're always coming up with new deals. I called a few weeks back to add on one more day to our stay. The very next day I get an email from Shades stating that if you add on an additional day to your existing reservation, that day would be 50% off. REALLY????? Now you tell me ???? I missed that deal by 24 hours. Oh well, at least I lucked out with the 40% off.

Does anyone know what time the bus to US/IoA leaves from Shades of Green? I know it's $10 each way, that's about it.

So we all are in agreement that the food is really bad at SOG. If you HAD to eat a meal (dinner) there what would be the best choice?

We are flying in aound 6 PM and transportation is straight to SOG for check-in. Figure we should be at SOG around 7-7:30 PM. Since our flight is a long one and with the time change if we are not up to going over to the Poly for Captain Cooks what would everyone suggest?

You don't really HAVE a choice at night. IF the restaurant is open late that will be your only choice.

personally, I'd go to the AAFES and get something there.

We always try arrive prior to the offical check-in time. Our room is usually not ready so we change clothes in the bathroom and leave our luggage with bell services.

You have to book transporation to US/IOA in advance (at least the day before) and you may be able to choose the time you want to be picked up.

How late are you arriving? We had the dinner buffet at the Garden Grill each night and didn't think it was too bad at all. I think the latest we ate was 8pm though. You could always walk over to the Poly too.

I am checking in the 20th but will be flying in on the 19th to stay at RP at US for one night. I probably won't check in until after dinner. We are renting a van so will most likely eat out of the world. I have been researching some restaurants I want to try. SO far want to eat at Sweet Tomatoes and Seasons 52. Anyone else eating outside the parks? My group of 7 is all over 21 and so dont' have smaller children who might require an earlier dinner. It is so strange that I have not made any ressies in the World. First trip ever not doing that.

Just going to wing it! Let's see what happens! I am commando style for sure so this will be a first for me!

I do plan to do some pool time as well but hmmmm...long range forecast not looking good.. Let's hope for the sun fairy

Can someone help me figure out tickets here ...

Looking for 6-day base tickets, no hopping, etc. The Stars & Stripes tickets are park hoppers with WP&M, correct? So it would be less expensive to get regular price Magic Your Way 6-day base tickets than the S&S? Military Salute tickets will not work due to blackout dates. Are there other options I'm missing?

Thanks.

Yes. S&S include hopping and WPF&M. I believe in your case the reglar MYW tickets will be your best option, either at SoG or at your MWR/ITT office, because they sell them without tax.

You might just check Undercover Tourist and see if they have any specials before you make a purchase, some of theirs include free days sometimes.
