of Green In
a secluded area near the Magic Kingdom, sandwiched
between the Magnolia and Palm golf courses,
sits the Shades of Green Resort. The Shades
of Green was originally built as a deluxe
Walt Disney World Resort and was formerly
known as the Disney Inn. In February 1994,
the Department of Defense leased the resort
for exclusive use by retired and active military
personnel and their families, members of
the reserves and the National Guard, as well
as Department of Defense civilians. The name, "Shades
of Green" signifies the camouflauge uniforms
worn by the armed forces without singling out any
one particular branch. The resort is fully self-supporting
and operates with non-appropriated funds. All profits
are turned back into the resort for improvements
to the accommodations and services. **NOTE - Shades of Green requires notice of cancellation at least 30 days prior to arrival, or your credit card will be charged an amount equal to one night's stay.
