Restaurant Reviews:

Since the only way a more informed decision can be made by future visitors is by a full description, we ask that you provide more than just a sentence or two on the restaurant. Bad example: "The food was great and the waiters very attentive. I'd eat there again." Good example: "I ordered the house specialty (filet mignon) and it was cooked perfectly, my partner ordered the chicken which was rather dry but the orange sauce was good. We had heavenly flan for dessert, and the wait staff was very attentive. Dinner for two including wine was $40-50."

I gotta tell you I have to disagree with negative comments on the transportation system. If you ask me we have it better than other on-site properties. We have a private dedicated bus system and at our disposal for use AND all of the transportation Disney operates. It has frustrated me when staying as SOG that people complain about waiting for a bus. Goodness, hop on any bus going to a monorail resort or the TTC to get to SOG or walk to the Poly and use the buses there or the monorail to get to the parks or DTD. It is really nice to have a bus that only caters to SOG guests. We don't have to stop at other resorts before arriving at our destination.
We were unable to secure rooms at SOG for our November trip and will be staying at Port Orleans. We know that we will be wishing we had more transportation options. Maybe we can figure something out!

We recently went to Disney World and stayed one night in an all stars resort which is one of the chepast disney hotels. We spent the rest of our vacation at SOG. We paid about $40 more a night to stay at the All star resort than at SOG.
We had 2 rooms poolside on bottom floor. The rooms were very clean and spacious. We had a patio outside our room and it seemed everyday we had had a visit from the wildlife. One day was a duck and her babies. another was a possum. another was wild turkeys.
I was originally nervous about staying at SOG because I didnt want to stay at a "military resort" but it didnt have a military feel at all. It felt like a high class resort.
The only complaint I had about the resort was the transportation. Since SOG is not a "disney resort" it does not run on the Disney tranportation system as the other resorts do. Instead you have to get ont he SOG bus system which is much slower. For most parks you have to wait for a bus to take you to Disneys transportation center which isnt very far away but. once you get there you find your monorail bus or ferry to where you want to go. Often once you get there you have to monorail somewhere to catch a bus to somewhere else..It can be a real pain.
Even with the poor transportaion system I would stay at SOG again.. It was a very nice hotel and well worth it. Of course it doesnt hurt that its very economical as well.

We first stated staying at SOG when it first opened back in 1994, we have been back everyother yr since, we absolutely LOVE it there. The first time back was right after they reopened and it was a little confusing at first trying to find where everything was and how to get to it, but after the first couple days we were fine. The rooms are so big and now that our kids are a lot older we always ask for view of the golf courses, with a balcony, we had a ground floor once and we had a "visitor" the pool views seem to be a little noisy for us now also. We really enjoy the restaurants, esp. the express cafe, so nice to be able to grab something quick before hopping on one of the buses. Transportation is always right on time and the staff is so very friendly. The pool areas are very clean and the water always the perfect temp and the jacuzzi was always available. We pay the E-7 rank and to me it is soooo worth it. Love being able to walk to the Polynesian and hop on the monorail if we want to or go rent one of the mouse boats and cruise around the lagoon and see some wild life as we walk over! I just wish it could have more of a Disney atmosphere, they do have a very large Mickey in the foyer which comes in handy for pictures, but I do understand they really cant bring too much Disney inside since it isnt owned by WDW. I am thrilled there is such a great resort for our military men/women/families..........keep up the great job!!!Our last stay was Dec 06 and it was beautifully decorated, hated to leave! We are coming back in a few weeks, May of 08, just hubby and I for our 22nd wedding anniversary!!
