We have stayed in the Magnolia section twice and our bathroom WAS set up that way. It is my understanding that not all of them are, but ours was. We were on the lobby level almost directly across from the laundry room.

We were in the Magnolia wing and our bath was exactly as you discribed. We had a standard room. Many of the rooms on our floor were identical.

Have a great trip!

SOG refillable mug question

I just read that SOG now has refillable mugs! I apologize if this has been discussed - there are so many pages here - it's hard to read through it all!

My question is - where do you refill your mug at SOG and what can you refill it with? Is coffee an option?

Thanks!

Just a heads up SOG refillable mugs are a little different than disney refillable mugs. I believe the SOG ones are around $5 for the mug and $1 for each subsequent refill. Not sure what beverages are available... But the value really depends on how often you plan to refill the mug (and what beverages are available).

I just saw where all Disney resorts, except for DVC villas will not have refrigerators in the room for at least several weeks, maybe months, due to a defect. I hope this doesn't mean SoG refrigerators will be removed as well as I need a refrigerator to store insulin. Does anyone know for sure?

83 days until we return to SoG for a Food & Wine trip!

FWIW, I received this email response regarding the status of the Magnolia pool refurb:

Quote:
At this time, the projected reopening of the Magnolia Pool is August depending on weather conditions during the renovation time frame.

This was from a couple years ago when they were first rolled out. Sorry it's so big.

Since SOG is not owned by Disney, their equipment shouldn't be involved.

SOG is not a Disney resort, so unless they bought the exact same refrigerators (which I doubt) not an issue.

wii room

Does anyone know if this still exists after all the renovations? Sounds crazy but my son really enjoyed this last year and I would like to take advantage of it for some of our down time! Also, I need to forewarn him if it is gone! LOL!

Thinking of booking our first stay at SOG this October and I have a few questions.

Do all of the rooms have a fridge?

Do all of the rooms have a coffee pot? If so can I use my own coffee or do I need a special pod?

Is there a pool bar? How late is it open?

Is there a food court type eating area? How late is it open?

Thank you for your help.
