Shades of Green opened it’s doors on 1 February 1994 in what was previously the Disney World owned Disney Inn Golf Resort.
For most of its history these prices were very attractive compared to Disney resort room rates.
Enter The Armed Forces Salute
In 2009 Disney began their almost constant offering of steeply discounted rooms to the military as part of their Armed Forces Salute. This new discount began to undercut the low rates at Shades of Green. Shades responded by beginning to offer their own discounts.
Shades offers long, mid, and short term discounts, which are announced periodically through the year. SOme are room only discounts, while other packages offer free Shades of Green dining (breakfast or breakfast and dinner).
Over the last couple of years Shades has begun to alter their discounts from what they initially announce. They will make an initial announcement with the dates and discount details, but as rooms fill up they will start altering the offer in different ways.
- They will reduce the discount percentage. For example, the initial 40% off will shrink to 30% or 20%
- They will reduce the dates the discount is offered, a full month offer is suddenly only available for a week and a half or just on certain dates.
- A percentage off offer for all categories will be changed to a dollar value off per night which makes the cost above the original percentage off for category 1 members
- The very latest trend: They’ll even totally change the name of a discount. Example the February 2013 Carnevale Special was renamed the I Heart SOG February Special.
Get Your Deal Early
So the take-away from this post is that if you are planning to stay at Shades of Green, jump on a discount for your dates as soon as it is announced!
Look at this discount as an example. If you’d booked this one early you’d save quite a bit more per night!
