Made our reservations for Star Wars weekend! We will begin Orlando using our free AFV Club rental from their current promo, and then move over to SOG for the fri-mon of Star Wars. DH won't be able to stay the whole time, so it will just be DS and I at SOG. I'm excited, every time we have booked in the past we have ended up at the Contemporary, which was great,but I'm excited to enjoy SOG. We will have a car, so I asked for a room near the garage, since it will just be me dragging all our gear in. I don't suppose they have any carts rouse from the garage? One more question, moving from a condo we will have perishables. I know at other Disney resorts they will hold them in the fridge until your room is ready, will the same go at SOG?

W just got back from SoG - love it there. Just be sure that which ever person is military is with you at check. They have bell services that will handle all your luggage. You can pull in, take all your luggage out, park your car. Bell services will deliver it all once you know your number and call them. That's what we did last week. Don't know about the fridge but I know our fridge was not cold when we got to the room as the temp had been turned all the way down. Thankfully we were only dealing with water and juice bags.
Have a wonderful trip.

Thanks for letting me know, I'll leave everything in the cooler until the fridge gets cold! My son is a milk-a-holic, so we can't go anywhere without a gallon. I'm a military spouse, my husband has to report back before we check into SOG - it's fine for me to check in with my spouse ID right? I didn't even think of that when I booked it!

It's fine for you to check in with your ID. Last year I went on a solo vacation and didn't have any trouble at all.

My father is the retired military in our family and doesn't always go to Disney with us and my mom is fine checking in with her military ID (sponsor ID). You should be good to go with yours.

We just booked the "Deck the Palms" special for mid December. There are only specific times available but it worked for us. Even though it includes free breakfast and dinner buffetts, we figured that even if we didn't eat the free dinner we were still ahead because of the slightly lower room rate that was offered with the special. The past few years, we have always gotten a better discount at Disney so we are excited to stay at SOG again.

As stated, your id is fine. How can you use your spouse's id; he is supposed to have it with him at all times?

Note that the fridges in SOG rooms are tiny; don't count on storing too many things in them. They will not hold a gallon of milk.

I meant my Id as a spouse, not his CAC card. No way could I pull off that bald head! But if it had been an issue, I would have gone over with him before he goes home so he could show ID and explain we were checking in without him.

Good for me know. They've always told me that my father needed to be there. Maybe I didn't make it clear that his wife/my mother would be there.

Just be sure not to turn the fridge too far up. I did that one year and had exploded sodas to clean up one morning.
