Typically, military lodgings should be eyed with a degree of wariness, but Shades of Green(SOG) exceeded our expectations in every measure. The facilities were very clean and well maintained. The staff was exceptional and quite possibly the most attentive and friendly that I have seen anywhere. They really enjoy working there. Lots of activities for kids like pirate or princess... More

I recently surprised my husband with a couples massage for his birthday. On the advise of a friend, we went to the Magnolia Spa at the Shades of Green resort on Disney property. For starters, the resort property is lovely - lush and inviting. The Spa was cozy and very well appointed. We were met by Rob who escorted us... More

Stayed for a week and wish I could have stayed for a year. Everything was beyond wonderful! Grounds were beautiful and always clean.Staff was very friendly and helpful. There was always something to do when not in the parks. My family loved both pools. Also the restaurants were pretty decent despite the reviews. Busses were always on time and drivers... More

I went to shades of Green after a stay at one of the Disney Resorts and I was so pleased at the hotel. The pools were great, the room service was great, and it was spotless clean. I love the Shades of Green and I will keep going back time after time. The Disney Resort we stayed in before we... More

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
