Shades of Green’s Poolside Rooms

Shades of Green the military Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida has 2 different non-suite room types, the Standard Room and the Poolside Room.

Each rate category has a different price for these rooms, but in all cases the Poolside Rooms are $10 more per night than the standard Rooms.

All Poolside rooms are in the Magnolia wing, which is the original wing dating back to the times of Disney ownership of the resort. Both pools are located in this wing.

Magnolia Pool Rooms


The Magnolia Pool at Shades of Green

The Magnolia Pool, sometimes referred to as the quiet pool has 13 Poolside Rooms, while the Millpond Pool has 33.

Rooms 101 through 113 are arraigned in an L on 2 sides of the Magnolia Pool. These rooms are separated from the pool area by shrubs and a sidewalk. The sidewalk carries all of the through traffic making the rooms more private. These are nice quiet rooms, the lower the room number the closer to the lobby and the higher my recommendation.

The Magnolia Poolside Rooms are the closest poolside rooms to the lobby. The Millpond rooms are further out.

Rooms 132 through 164 surround the Millpond Pool on 3 sides. Evergreens Sports Bar, the Arcade, and the playground occupy the 4th side furthest from the lobby.

Rooms 132 through 138 are on the North side. The lower the number, the closer the room is to Evergreens and the Playground.

Rooms 139 through 154 run along the East side. Rooms 139 to 144 have greenery partially screening them from the walkway and pool making them more private, these are my favorite rooms by this pool. This block of Millpond Pool rooms is the closest to the lobby.

Rooms 155 through 164 are on the South side with the lower numbers being closer to the Kids Splash Area and the higher ones closer to Evergreens.

When making your reservations you may request specific room numbers or areas, but be aware that Shades cannot make guarantees.

If you are interested in a Poolside Room be sure to reserve yours early as these 46 rooms are very popular and a small percentage of the 586 total rooms.

If you are interested in a Suite, the Magnolia Suite is the only one located close to the pools in the Magnolia Wing.
