Question

Thanks for the replies regarding dietary restrictions!

So I finished reading the entire thread (whew!) and will be booking my room today for the last week of August. I would like to be close to the walkway to the Poly and a pool and be able to view the MK fireworks. I would also like a fresh room, with two sinks if possible. Tall order, I know! Can you give me any tips on what to ask for when booking?

You will want the Magnolia wing.
Those are closest to the pool and all have been renovated most recently.
Take a look at the map http://www.militarydisneytips.com/Do.../ShadesMap.jpg

Have fun!

Quick question...my DH has been dragging his feet about making our official reservation and it's driving me mad!! Does he, being the military member eligible for SoG, need to make the reservation? I'm so ready to just pick up the phone and call for him. I know it will make him , but I need our reservation to be made!!

Yes, you can make the reservation (phone/online). I always make ours. I'm not sure DH even knows how!

I make them for my father and the only thing they ask me is his rank.

Thanks everyone! Turns out he had made the reservation but was just messing with me. He knows how excited I am with this, he couldn't resist picking on me.

We make our dining plans, check out the menus, and buy disney gift cards to cover all of our meals. We buy a certain amount each month (its a bill for us) and then we use them for our meals. My question is, does SOG accept Disney gift cards? My gut says that they don't. But if they did, I would increase the amount of gift cards that we are buying and pay the SOG bill with them also. I just love having everything paid for in advance!!!

Now... Onto praying that they work out the budget issue so that we don't lose 20% of my dh income!!

Have you thought about purchasing some prepaid Visa gift cards to use at SOG? You could then use them at SOG or in the parks, even at home should you have some money left on them

Just a warning. We cashed come loyatly points in for VISA gift cards to use at SOG for our room bill. Check before you count on doing this because we were told by the issuing bank after I ended bringing them back home with me that travel related vendors, including hotels, and dining will not run the card for the face value. So when I tried to pay $500 with a $500 VISA it was actually running it for $600 because they hedge 20% in case you add tips (or something) and the card was coming up as insufficient for the face value. Kind of embarassing and madening.
