All rooms have a fridge.

4 cup Coffee pot in all rooms. You could use your know coffee.

We stayed at SOG 3 years ago with our four adult kids and grandkids (5 rooms). At that time, we were told that anyone with a room card could buy discounted tickets at the SOG ticket office, and they all did. Yes, the posted policy does not say this, but I think it's worth a call to SOG.

BTW, non-retired vets are eligible to stay at SOG in Sept and Jan http://www.shadesofgreen.org/saluteveterans.htm

If bringing your own coffee, don't forget the smaller 4 cup coffee filters!

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

Thank you for your help.
Welcome to the Shades family. You will not regret staying at Shades. In answer to your questions:

Yes, all rooms have fridges. They are, however, very small.
Yes, all rooms have coffee pots and you can use your own coffee. When we were there last, they were the kind that uses the paper filters and not the pods.
I can't answer about the pool bar. Hope someone else can.
There is not really a food court, but there are several eating options ... none of which I would recommend. Some people like the buffet, but it didn't impress me. But, none of the food places stay open very late.

Hope this helps!

I might suggest that your ILs rent their scooters off site and have them with them. There is a lot of walking just getting to the parks.

The easiest will be to walk up the driveway to poly (have the elders use the Shady Shuttle) and take the Poly monorail directly to the MK. Or just drive them over to the Poly in two trips.

Another option with very little walking would be to drive your party in 2 trips over to the Contemporary (it's like a mile) and then let the elders take the Monorail to the MK while those of you who want to walk can just walk over.

If Epcot has an early opening then the TTC bus will be running early enough for you, and you can use that to catch the monorail to the MK.

but no matter what, you can't drive up to the MK for drop off. It's all done at the TTC. Know that there is a steep ramp to the monorail at TTC and it's hard to walk up for elders.

Scooters at SOG

Will the scooters be hard to manage getting on SOG buses?

Have never seen anyone with a scooter have any problems getting on or off the buses. You are first on, first off and the driver is always very helpful.

Today I noticed that the bus driver loaded and unloaded the scooter. Also there are a bunch of scooters at bell services. I don't know if you can rent them.

I wasn't sure if there were a lot of scooters and you get left behind. It says 2 on a bus. I guess I'll wait a little longer to make sure they are still coming then I'll call to see if SoG has them for rent.
