It started out as one man’s vision: to have places where people could encounter magic and the ability to dream. Fast forward years later, Walt’s idea for his theme park is still in full display. Disney World’s latest announcement reminds the world that the men and women who have served our country deserve all of the respect and honor we can give them.
Disney World believes that the hard working folks in the US Military deserve to be honored — even at their parks. They did so by building an exclusive resort for all military ranking guests. The resort itself is owned by the US Department of Defense.
It’s the heartwarming gesture from the theme park that reminds us that although we’ll never able to adequately repay their sacrifice, we can ensure their lives are made a little easier.
People in the service, along with their families can come and enjoy an exclusive stay at the Shades of Green Military Resort.
The resort is only a few steps away from the Magic Kingdom park and conveniently has it’s own Disney gift shop. And the merchandise on site is discounted. Just another way to give back!
The resort’s nightly rates are based on the person’s rank. Eligibility and rates can be found on their website.
The general manager of the hotel, Edward Fagan says, “Disney is a place where dreams come true. It’s the number-one family tourist destination in the world. In its midst we have a beautiful resort this is something that is provided by the US military as a thank you for your service.”
The hotel does all it can to provide connivence for its guests. It doesn’t have direct access to the monorail, but they do have a free shuttle to and from the park.
When the Disney magic wears out your little ones, there’s so much to do inside the walls of the resort. You can take it easy by the pool, go to the spa, spend the kids to the arcade, or eat at one of their restaurants.
Doesn’t this resort sound awesome? If you are a part of the US Military check out all the amazing benefits that the Shades of Green Resort has to offer when you book your next trip to Disney World.
Thank you Disney World for supporting and honoring our military heroes! May we never forget to stop and pray for our selfless men and women of service. God bless our Troops! Please share if you know anyone in the military that needs to know about this incredible resort built just for them!
