Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom resort

    My family is staying at Shades of Green later this year with a 5 year old and a 1 year old. I'm having trouble determining what Disney Resort benefits apply to us - like Dining Plans. Can I purchase them? Does a 1-year old require a dining plan?

    Hi Nicole!

    Great question!  I have stayed many times in Shades of Green. What a beautiful resort! You are truly going to enjoy it! Although Shades of Green is located within the Walt Disney World Resort, it is not a Disney Resort Hotel rather an Armed Forces Recreation Center Resort and the only benefit Guests are entitled to are the Extra Magic Hours. Since they have a different reservation system, the confirmation numbers cannot be linked in your My Disney Experience Account, nor will you receive a complimentary MagicBand and cannot purchase a Disney Dining Plan. 

    Did you know?
    : The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers for military personnel! My family and I took advantage of the awesome discount in January when we stayed at the Cabins in Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. I believe we saved close to 30% off of the regular rates! You can view these discounts by visiting this page: 2017 Military Discounts for Resorts. In order to request the discount, you have to make your reservation by calling (407) 939-5684.  Remember that staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of great benefits!

    It has been a pleasure assisting you! If I can help you with any other planning question, please feel free to send them my way!
