We have been here 7 times. We often consider staying somewhere else on property 'next time'. But, we never have! When one considers the location, transportation, beautiful rooms and grounds and then the value ...nothing else even comes close. Walk around the very LOUD Polynesian and Grand Floridian which are all in the same square block and realize that they... More

This was a very nice facility, located on Walt Disney resort property. This is not open to the public, you must have certain credentials before you are eligible to stay here. For example, you must be either active-duty military, retired military, or some other similar status. Prices are set based on your pay grade in the service. In other words,... More

Third time staying at SOG. Great value for on Disney resort property. Disappointed in room though...Stayed in older wing, and it is tired and desperate need of upgrading! Walk to room was very far too, which can be a challenge for some. Appreciate some of the upgrades to the pools, and they have a nice bar/clubhouse. Buffet was good (many... More

We stayed there last week for a couple days after returning from a Disney Cruise. Shades of Green does it right!!! Polite, friendly and just a great place for the money. If your a veteran and you wanna do Disney, this is the place to stay! As an E-6 my room was only $90 a night and $5 parking vs... More

We stayed at three resorts and this ranked #1 for the adults. The kids loved it here too but lost points for theming. We really enjoyed the low crowded feel of this resort. We absolutely loved the size and renovations of our room. The price for the room as well as the drinks can't be beat at any of the... More

There are some advantages to staying here, and it was not truly terrible hence 2 star rating, but I have to mention the following: The AC did not work half the time. You could turn it down to 70 or lower even but it wouldn't get colder than 75, which after being out in the blazing sun all day isn't... More

Our 2nd year staying at Shades and another great stay for 12 days The new rooms with two queen and a sofabed provide plenty of room for a 5-person family. The little table and mini-fridge are great for snacks and late night meals after a long night at the parks. We were on the 3rd floor in the wing next... More

This was our first time staying at Shades of Green, and we couldn't have had a better experience. We were very pleased with the accommodating staff, the quality of the restaurant, the size and cleanliness of the room, the awesome pools, the fireworks that can be seen from the resort, and most of all the price is unbeatable. We can't... More

This was our family's second trip staying at Shades of Green while visiting Disney World. The lobby and restaurants are well maintained and staff can regularly be seen working on upkeep throughout the hallways and grounds. We had a first floor room and had requested connecting rooms which was accommodated to our delight. The rooms at SOG are significantly larger... More

Great price, location, employees, service, food, and experience! We have stayed here five years in a row. You can't beat the discounted rate, the hourly buses to each park, and the friendliness of the staff. We'll never consider staying at another hotel!
