The hotel was beautiful with the Christmas decorations. The staff was very friendly and professional. We had room service twice and it was great! Mangino's was great! The food was excellent and the staff were nice as usual! We have enjoyed everything about Shades of Green! We plan to return to Shades of Green whenever we go to Disney World!

My brother and sister-in-law are both former military and one of their daughters is active duty. When we started planning a week at Disney World over Christmas 2016, staying at Shades of Green was a no-brainer. They have stayed there 2-3 times before and always raved about it. I'll admit, I was a little hesitant as I worried that we...

Breakfast buffet was done well. We were traveling with small children and everyone was quite accommodating. Clean hotel and large rooms. We would return here with our family. Nice playground and fun pool area.

Stayed the week of January 9, with 8 family members in 3 separate rooms. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay! I was a little hesitant to stay here, because of the mixed reviews, but the hotel FAR exceeded my expectations. The rooms were HUGE with a large bathroom (separate room for the shower and toilet and then...

Military families have one terrific option when staying at Disney World and the Orlando area, the Shades of Green hotel, part of the Armed Forces Recreation Center community. This is the original Disney Hotel and the first hotel at Disney World. The hotel is super convenient to the Monorail, Transportation Center, and offers free dedicated shuttle buses to all the...

I consider myself very lucky to have access to the best hotel at WDW. I have stayed at Shades many times and this last time was once again perfect. Clean and safe are the two best features add to it affordable and comfortable. Bravo

Great experience. Stayed two days over the MLK holiday weekend. Room was clean and nicely equipped. Five minute ride by bus to the Disney TTC. Shades of Green has enough on site to keep you busy. Both restaurants we visited were good also. We will definitely be back

This is our second time at the resort, thanks to a family sponsor. This year we stayed on the newer side of the facility by the parking garage. The rooms are great, well decorated, and spacious. We had a pull out couch and two queen beds. The bathroom had a separate room for toilet and shower, and an very large...

We've stayed at many different resorts at Disney. This is actually a great change of pace from the over stimulation of Disney stuff. It was nice to come back at the end of the day and unwind. My only complaint is the walls are very thin and we heard every crying child on our floor lol. And the tubs are...

There is not a better place to stay in Disney proper, if you are eligible. The rooms are extra large and you will not find a more competitive price anywhere. The property is beautiful, the staff is exceptional and the convenience of being so close to the parks is the best. We like to walk down to the Polynesian and...
