I haven't seen refillable mugs but I haven't eaten at SOG yet.
Yes, the room Wii games etc is still there. The Made in the Shade gift shop is next to it. The empty ice shoppe is there and the ticket counter. The coffee stand which now has ice cream is now located in the lobby near the steps to the Garden Gallery.

How does the new lobby furniture/design look? Any pictures? Also how does the new AAFES look?

Is the ice cream parlor still there or did it close when the opened the lobby bar?

How far along is the pool? Will it be done soon?

Are magic-bands/fastpass+ being implemented for Shades?

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.

Exclamation Breakfast in the pak before opening?

I have us booked for Cindy's breakfast at 8:05. Park says it will be opening at 9:00. We have a car at Shades but there is one person to many to drive. (some are flying in). There will be one child, two 70ish with walking issues, and 3 in-between. The in-laws are planning to rent scooters in the park. What are our options and what do you experts think is the best option?


Thanks,
Denise

Laundry now takes tokens which are a dollar per token.
Washer - 1 token
Dryer - 1 cycle = 1 token

There is token machine that accepts bills only.
