Does anyone know anything about an upcoming pool refurbishment at SoG? I saw mention of it on another board by someone planning an October trip, but no details as to dates, etc.

Thanks,
Pam

I saw something posted about this on their Facebook page, I will see if I can find it. It was posted on Aug 3.

The Magnolia Pool will be undergoing a major reconstruction this fall and they will be adding a Splash Pad and slide in Spring 2013

The pool refurbishment info is also on the SOG website, so if you want info it's listed there.

Thanks, I found it. We have 3 poolside rooms Christmas week. Wonder how this will affect that? We have 5 pre-teen/teen boys in our group who swim in any weather.

They are only closing the quiet Magnolia pool now, but the Millpond or Mickey Mouse pool will be open. They said they would never close both pools at once. So you will have at least one pool to use.

Thank you Buffettgirl. What does AAFES have for sale that would work for a dinner? I haven't been there in two years and only remember them having boxes of cerel or crackers, cookies, milk, items like that.

We should be there 7 to 7:30 at the lastest. So you must have enjoyed the dinner buffet at the Garden Grill? Was the food really good or was it the convience of it being on property? Thank you Emksmama for suggesting this and any thought you have on my questions.

Isn't cereal, chips and cookies an exceptable dinner options when your on vacation?!

Maybe Aafes has PB&J fixins or maybe you could bring some stuff like microwaveable soups or oatmeal or something like that which would be quick and easy if your super tired.

Does AAFES carry cases of bottled water? We have car and can stop at local supermarket but would be more convenient getting it there?


oops that reminds me.. what is bottled water now in parks? Last time I was there it was Aquafina cannot drink tap water in restaurants or parks. I find it very distasteful.
hmmm maybe I should just stick with BEER

I don't recall seeing cases of bottled water. It's not a BIG giant AAFes, just a small hotel store (with a few more food items than normal) - and better prices.

I did see this though, http://www.militarydisneytips.com/Ti...et-Office.html and since we've never had a car before I never knew about it. I wonder if it's a LOT cheaper and more convenient to stop there for water and other food items?

Has anyone stopped?

Dining

Does anyone think they will ever offer the Disney Dining Plan to Shades of Green guests or am I just wishful thinking??
I thought that one time quite a while back I saw something about that being discussed but I guess it never came about...
