    We are planning on staying on Disney this year at Shades of Green. Does the Disney Magical Express go to Shades of Green. Can we use the Disney Magical Express? Thanks Carol

    Hi, Carol, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While Shades of Green does have its own transportation to Walt Disney World Resort locations, it does not participate in Disney's Magical Express service. If you're flying into Orlando International Airport, you can arrange transportation in the airport's Ground Transportation area or in advance through a shuttle service of your choice. If you're interested in renting a car at the airport, there's an Alamo rental desk inside Shades of Green. Simply park your rental car in one of the designated spaces in the Shades of Green parking garage and return your keys to the Alamo desk in the lobby. When you're ready to leave, you can rent a car to return to the airport from that same location. For your reference, Shades of Green is a 30-40 minute drive from Orlando International Airport. You'll need to make sure you have your military ID on hand in order to get onto the Shades of Green property, too.

    Once you've arrived at Shades of Green, you'll receive a schedule for the hotel's dedicated bus transportation to the Transportation and Ticket Center (servicing Epcot and Magic Kingdom Park), Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach Water Parks and Disney Springs, too. My family and I also love to walk across the street to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for dining, shopping and catching the monorail or boat to Magic Kingdom Park. Did you know as a Shades of Green guest, you're eligible to make your FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance? Just link your reservation confirmation number to your My Disney Experience account (using a computer--not the mobile app) to get started.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions, Carol, and I hope you have a magical vacation!
