Shades of Green Resort Pools
Shades of Green has two fantastic, newly remodled/refurbished outdoor heated pools!
They are the Magnolia Pool and the Mill Pond Pool. Both pools are located adjacent to the Magnolia Wing of the Resort.
During the day these pools are very lightly used, they are the perfect place to relax on the afternoon of your arrival day.
The Mill Pond pool is formed in the shape of Mickey Mouse's Head and Ears. This is the main pool for the resort.
The Kids brand new splash area and slide are also be found here as well as the regular (dry) playset..
Evergreens Sports Bar is located near this pool which makes it convenient to grab a refreshing drink or a snack to enjoy poolside.
There is full time lifeguard staff at both Pools.

The Mill Pond Pool is a great place to get away from the heat in the theme parks!
It features an all new water slide and kid's splash area
The Mill Pond Pool is handicap accessible. Evergreens Sports Bar and Arcade is located behind the Millpond Pool.
The Brand New Kid's Splash Area!
The Kid's Playground is also next to the Mill Pond Pool
The Magnolia Pool
The Magnolia pool is a zero entry pool located in a quiet corner of the resort. This pool is usually less busy and typically has fewer kids if you're looking for a quiet soak. the resort's hot tub is also located here.
One of the best tips especially in the summer is to take a mid-day break from the theme parks.
Hit the parks early and get a lot done then head back to your room for a nap, dip in the pool, and a change of clothes. You'll be rested, refreshed and ready to head back for the nightly parades and fireworks!
