This was our 2nd visit since retirees cannot go to Edelweiss anymore, too bad for them and the lost revenue. We were not disappointed however at Shades of Green, from check in to check out 6 days later. Our check in was flawless, smooth and easy, room assignment was in the Palms Wing 3rd floor (3145). The initial entry to... More

We stayed at Shades of Green for a pre-vacation before going on a cruise and it was wonderful. I wanted to stay on somewhat of a budget and decided to bring our breakfast. I brought oatmeal in cups and used their microwave which is located in the laundry room. We visited the italian restaurant during a rainy afternoon and the... More

This is a great place to stay and a great value. The parking fee is nominal. The shuttles are easily accessible for Disney attractions and saves the hassle of driving. There is everything you need on the resort property. The rooms were nice, spacious, and clean. The resort is really large so be prepared to walk alot and bring a... More

We took a family trip to Orlando for the usual Disney/SeaWorld/Universal experience. Since SoG is not technically a Disney hotel you are not drowning in merchandise - it's like staying at a regular hotel. Everything was clean, staff was friendly, there were extra daily activities for kids and the environment was generally relaxed. The shuttles were on time and easy... More

They have done a lot to update and improve the facilities over the past couple of years. Definitely affordable alternative for approved families. Convenient transportation, amenities, facilities, and atmosphere. Food was good and very reasonable. The staff is great and helpful with information about local attractions.

We made the reservations online, checked boxes for adjoining rooms and cribs, then called to confirm. Neither option was made. I get it, they made not have made adjoining rooms at the time of the reservation, but they brought us a crib as soon as we asked for one once we got there with a sleeping baby that needed to...

My brother is ex-military and sponsored our stay at Shades of Green. Our group was very happy with the friendly service and reasonable prices. The resort was in good shape and well maintained. They did a great job with catering to my elderly mother's needs and I really enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning. There was some construction/remodeling underway for... More

Though I haven't stayed in them, I can't see the other nearby luxury resorts being much better based on what I've seen. Shades of Green is fantastic and an incredible value/deal for military members. It's beautiful, well maintained, and very competent.

This hotel is one of the unknown jewels on the Disney property. Only for members of the U.S. military and their guests, the rates are much cheaper than anything else you can find on the Disney site (we paid $129 a night for a two queen room with a big screen TV, free WIFI and a sofa and small table...
