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.
In recent years these discounts have diverged from their original large discounts of up to 40% and have settled at 1-% to 15% off rooms. Room and meal packages which were offered in the past have also disappeared.
The room only discounts are a great compliment to the Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket Discount.
Shades of Green offers varied short-term discounts to fill their rooms as needed. 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.
Shades of Green’s Discounts
Shades of Green is currently only offering short term discounts for short periods of days during a month. their old long term permanent discounts that ran continuously are no more.
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!

How to Make Reservations
Shades of Green’s special rates can only be reserved by calling their reservation line at (888) 593-2242. They can not be reserved online!
You specifically ask the reservationist for the special; they will not add it automatically.
If only some of your travel dates are during a Special Rate, you can still have the discount applied to those dates.
Shades of Green does offer connecting rooms but they are not guaranteed. Be sure to request these if desired when calling.

Any idea who has booked SOG for 2 solid weeks in September 2021?
Either something is going on (a technical glitch) with their reservation system for that timeframe, or they may have a big function during that time that is taking up a big chunk of rooms as you mentioned.
If you are interested in that timeframe, I’d call to ask: Reservations (888) 593-2242
I am having such a hard time trying to figure out why there is no availability for any suite at SOG. We are trying to visit May 2023 and I decided to do a trial run on the web site with the understanding the suites are hard to get. Looking a at dates a full year out there is absolutely no suites offered, so upsetting because I guess there is nothing I can do.
This is not the first time I’ve heard this over the years. People who want these do it the first day possible.
There are only 11 suites. I don’t know about now, but in the past the Shades general manager (a previous one) lived in one of them, blocking it from guest use.
I just looked and from summer on see only 2 days a month available Jul-Nov and 5 days in Jan 23.
I’d try calling to ask if they have any blocked and to see what time the upcoming day drops and you need be online to try to reserve 365 days prior to your dates.
