Vacation Memories

The Shades of Green Roof Replacement Project is slated to start in mid-October 2023. To minimize disruption to our guests, this project will be executed in phases, with work taking place in different sections of the hotel at different times. This approach will allow us to maintain a comfortable and enjoyable environment for our guests throughout the duration of the project. It is anticipated to be completed by October 2025.

Eligibility Requirements 




A pilgrimage to the House of Mouse is a once-in-a-lifetime trip to treasure with your family. Military tickets, promotions, and discounts can be confusing. We can help you experience all the Walt Disney World® Resort magic for less. 




Shades of Green dining is convenient and full of options to suit your taste, budget and busy schedule. Whether you’re after a quick bite on your way to the parks, a sit-down spread with dozens of dishes or homemade ice cream to enjoy after a busy day, you’ll find something to treat your appetite right at Shades of Green.



Make sure to schedule an off day from the parks to relax by the pools. Shades of Green has two active pools to enjoy all the water play you can handle.  The Magnolia Pool is zero-entry and the nearby hot tub is a great spot for grownups to relax.  The iconic Mill Pond Pool has a three-level water slide and separate cushioned splash park, which is perfect for family fun.

Shades of Green originally opened as a Disney-owned resort known as the Golf Resort in December 1973 with 151 rooms. The Golf Resort was located in the middle of the Palm and Magnolia golf courses. The resort was built of wood and volcanic rock in the style of a country club. The core building of the resort was opened in 1971 as a two-story clubhouse for the golf courses and did not actually have guest rooms.
