We had a group of 11 including 4 kids, and this was a great hotel! The breakfast buffet is pretty standard and repetitive, but you can't beat the price-especially for kids UNDER 6 ( denied our 6 year old of the free buffet, and charged the 11 year old full adult price). The shuttles run frequently to all the Disney... More

We just enjoyed our first stay at Shades of Green. I had booked a poolside room in Feb and called 2 times to make sure we would be able to have one when I read a pool was being closed for renovation. I was told they couldn't assign a room until we arrived. Our flight was late in the day... More

I could write a really long comment about this place but will save everyone's time and hit the points you are looking for. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel has tons of amenities for all ages including a bar/pool table. The room and hotel was VERY VERY clean! The rooms are huge. We travel a lot and this by... More

Ok, after reading some of the reviews from the hotel snobs. I had to write in SOG defense. My family just stayed for a week at SOG. If you are expecting the Four Seasons, this isn't for you, try the Grand Floridian. It was a spacious room and everyone was very friendly. My son ended up leaving his IPhone in... More

We are only able to stay here due to my father's retired status, but it is wonderful. The price can't be beat for a hotel actually on the Disney property, with attraction tickets available at likewise unbeatable prices. The rooms are perfectly suitable, if not exactly luxury accommodations. The facilities are very nice in general; even room service prices are... More

We had our first visit to SOG this July (taking our 2 young boys for their first ever trip to Disney) and could not have asked for a better experience! The rooms were big and very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly (especially the Garden Gallery crew). Excellent variety of restaurants, coffee, ice cream, technology center, arcade, pools,... More

What a bargain, rooms are large and handicapped accessible. Everyone was so helpful and polite. It was nice to have an adjustable bed in my room after a long day at Disney. Pool was refreshing. Small AAFES shop on hotel on lower level that has a great selection. Couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel on Disney property.

Large clean rooms. Wonderful staff. Efficient bus system. Excellent food and beverage. Loved the Breakfast, Wing night and Stir Fry in the Garden Gallery. The new bread and pizza dough in Mangino's is terrific. Will make Shades of Green our first choice for our next Disney visit.

I have Stayed at SOG Numerous times, and for the price, there is no better on property option. I have stayed at several of the Disney Deluxe resorts and while they offer more of the Disney experience and better pools and dining, they are also 3 or 4 times the price depending on your rank. Pros: Rooms are spacious and... More

The first few times we stayed at Disneyworld we made the mistake of not staying at Shades of Green. For the past three visits we corrected that mistake and stayed at SOG. This resort is awesome. I would say the best thing about SOG is that you feel you are among family and friends, not the craziness that happens at... More
