Shades of Green at Walt Disney World Offers many great Discounts and Packages.
On this page you’ll find all of the current Military Discounts that are available from Shades of Green. Some of these are room only discounts, some include 2 adult breakfasts per day, and occasionally they will include dinner as well.
These discounts are a great compliment to the Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket Discount.
Shades of Green occasionally offers varied short discounts to fill their rooms. Some of the recent discounts have been for small blocks of days rather than long periods and they’ve been discontinued as soon as the time frame they are trying to fill is full.
NOTE: Upon re-opening after the 2020 closure period, Shades of Green cancelled all previously announced discounts! We will update this page if and when they begin to discount again.
I’ve divided Shades of Green’s Discounts into 2 categories
- Long Term – Discounts that are continuous or run a long time
- Short Term – Discounts for short periods of days to a month or so.
Each type is listed below.
Note: Something to be aware of is that Shades of Green constantly changes the dates and amount of discounts offered on their specials and packages. They will make the initial announcement and then as rooms begin to fill up they will reduce the available dates and/or the amount of the savings. I’ve seen month-long specials at 40% off be reduced to a smattering of days at 20% off. I do try to keep up with this, but they make no announcements of changes so I have to discover changes as they come out.
Shades of Green is the final authority on the discounts they are currently offering!
If they tell you there is no discount available, then there isn’t. Do not say “But I saw it on Military Disney Tips.” and demand it. I just might not have seen their change yet. If you do encounter this, please let me know the discount has changed!
Shades of Green’s Short Term Discounts
Shades of Green re-opened after the lock-down closure on 12 August. Upon re-opening, all previously announced short term discounts were cancelled for August 2020 through January 2021.
It remains to be seen if and when discounts will come back.
Discounts on Shades of Green’s rooms are a “relatively new” occurrence in the history of the resort. Prior to 2009 rooms were never discounted, but when Disney started offering the Disney Armed Forces Salute Room discounts in 2009, Shades of Green started offering discounts as well.
Previously Announced Discounts (all discontinued):
Savings in August – 21 – 23 August & 28 – 31 August 2020 (Room Only)
September Savings – 1 – 13 & 25 – 30 September 2020 (Includes Breakfast)
Savings in October – 1 – 3 & 24 October – 2 November 2020 2020 (Includes Breakfast)
Savings in November – 14 – 20 & 29 – 30 November 2020 (Includes Breakfast)
January Savings (First 2021 offer!) – 4 – 6 & 11 – 13 January 2021 (Room Only)
Armed Forces Recreation Centers – Survivors’ Family Program -This offer has disappeared from Shades of Green’s website.
Note: Shades of Green has always placed banner ads on their home page for all of their current short term discounts, but part way through 2016 they began placing banner ads for months with no short term discounts which feature the Red, White, & Blue and Sunrise Packages (see below) for certain days of the month that they want to fill. With their website redesign in early 2018 they now have all monthly discounts on one dedicated page. The months with special discounts are mixed in with months that only feature the Red, White, & Blue and Sunrise Packages. The Red, White, & Blue and Sunrise Packages offer low Discounts!
