Everything about the resort was wonderful, except for the restaraunt (Garden Grille). Food at buffet was terrible and waitress service was awful. Stayed for over a week but gave up on eating breakfast there after two tries. They were seemingly incapable for handling the small crowds that came there every morning. Lesson: Use the fast service counters, get to the parks and eat a few snacks while you are there. While the on-site spa is very awkward in lay-out, it is very good in the services they provide and at a reasonable price. If you have the military affiliation to use this resort, you should - just carefully consider your breakfast options.

Room Tip: If you bring your own or have a rental car, ask for a room near the multi-level parking garage.

Shades of Green Resort right across from the Polynesian Resort very close to The Magic Kingdom. If your Military connected, Widow etc you have to stay here.
My sister and I spent 7 days at this resort. Loved staying Here. We were in room 208 looking out at the Golf Course this is on the main level. A bit of a walk but oh so quiet. Our room was 2 Queen beds with a sofa, table and chairs, patio, 2 sink bath room. Very nice and very clean. What is so neat, there is a bus that leaves every 20 min to take you to the transportation Center just 10 minutes away. Catch the monorail to the part of your choice. There is also a bus that takes you to Universal but you need to make reservations.
Oh yes you can purchase all of your park tickets here also at a good discount. This resort is a must stay. Make sure you ask where the bus pick up is at Check in... and the store just inside of the bus pick up has the best value on Water and some good eats.

Room Tip: If you want quite, as for a room close to 208. This is overlooking the golf course. Or if you want close to the pool.

The location and price are great. The hotel operates a convient shuttle service to all of the Disney Parks. The rooms are very large and clean. The grounds of the hotel are very well maintained. The only downside is the long walk to the lobby of the hotel. Our room was about as far away from the lobby as you can get. I've previously stayed in other Disney resorts and this doesn't have the same Disney feel, but for the money you can't beat it.

The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were fantastic for the price especially. The buses were great and on time and convienient. The resort itself was beautiful and all of the stay belonging to the hotel itself were top notch. The bad part of the hotel was the customer service at the restaurant's on site. The waitress at the Italian restaurant was very short, was not paying attention and focusing on us while ordering. She was down right rude a few times. Our hotel stay included breakfast which was tasty but we skipped it three mornings due to the 30-45 minute waits. The staff at breakfast wasn't rude just not very attentive. Overall, I would go back but would like somebody to come in and take care of the poor customer service at the restaurants. If that was done it would go from a four to a five. Paying for parking in their parking deck seems shady as well.
