4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

A military only hotel located on Walt Disney World. Rates are based on your rank but all are less than Disney's All-Star resorts. You can bring another family with you even if they are non military. The service has greatly improved since my last stay about five years ago. The rooms are significantly larger than even the Deluxe level Disney... More

We just returned from a week stay at Shades of Green with our two grandchildren. We had a fabulous time. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Twice we had to call for additional supplies in the restroom and the housekeeping staff was very quick to respond. We ate our breakfasts and dinners in the Garden Gallery and enjoyed every... More

We stayed at Shades of Green during the Disney Princess Marathon weekend. We are lucky enough to have some in laws who are active military to get us a room. This is a no-frills disney resort, but its still very nice and the location cannot be beat for the price. You can walk to the Magic Kingdom (or the transportation... More

Really a pretty nice place. Staff could not be more helpful. Quiet, calm, 2 pools (one more designed for kids), decent restaurants, etc. rooms are spacious and well appointed (*no microwaves). Much nicer than our first hotel. Very convenient (walking distance) to Magic Kingdom and Epcot monorail with shuttles to other attractions. Highly recommend.

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Shades Of Green / WDW! No idea where some of the negative reviews come from – our stay at SOG was fantastic from start to finish. Stayed 8 nights and hated to leave! Hotel amenities are great and we found the SOG staff to be every bit as friendly and welcoming as Disney... More

I read the poor reviews and I have to say...I did not experience any of their complaints except for one which was the TV issue. But, with a little patience and the on off button we did fine. The rooms were great, the staff exceptional, the bus service was outstanding and breakfast was wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here... More

We had a wonderful time at Shades of Green. Check-in was busy, but efficient. We had a first floor room and enjoyed the back porch. We spent time at the zero entry pool. There were few kids and it was quiet and relaxing. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants, so I can't add food to the review. My... More

I believe that having a place like this for our military and families is so wonderful! It was great from the moment we walked in!!! The staff is simply amazing!!!! Our son love coming into the room at night to see what "magic"had happened while we were gone! Like his toys wearing sun glasses and towels in shapes, etc! The... More

Shades of Green is an excellent resort to stay at, if you can. My daughters and I stayed at SOG last week under the sponsorship of my brother, a retired Army officer. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. It is within walking distance to the Disney Polynesian resort where you can catch the monorail to Magic Kingdom or EPCOT.... More

We stayed at Shades of Green for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms were quite large, quiet and nicely decorated. The hallways were nice & wide too. We did meet a nice young man in the dining hall on our last evening there. His name was Stephen, he was the lead guy on the buffet. He... More
