Everyone loves to visit Orlando, Florida. What's not to love? Great weather, beautiful beaches and Disney World. However, it can get expensive when you factor in airfare, hotel, Disney, activities, and food. We have put together a list of Top Discounts at Orlando Hotels to help make your vacation a little more affordable.
(1) Shades of Green
We have to list Shades of Green first. Why? Because it is awesome!
The Armed Forces Recreation Center Resorts (AFRC) exist to provide rest, relaxation, recreation and sustainment for military personnel, their families and other members of the Total Defense Force. AFRC’s support readiness, retention and quality of life. They will be prepared to assume contingency missions in the support of the mobilizations of combat operations.
Shades of Green® on WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort is an Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) located in Central Florida. The Shades of Green Resort is a true resort destination; offering the perfect mix of exceptional resort accommodations and friendly hospitality.
We stayed there a couple years ago and we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the accommodations were. Shades of Green is located a shuttle ride away from Disney and all the action so we found the location to be very convenient. The rooms were spacious and well maintained to include a balcony which was a nice surprise. The grounds are beautiful with flowers, lush vegetation and a fantastic pool area. There were fun activities at the resort to include an arcade which our kids loved. But, the best part about Shades of Green....the price. You simply can't beat it! I highly recommend looking into Shades of Green if you want to stay at a nice resort located close to Disney.
