    Default Military Resort Discounts 2020

    Hi all!! Looking for input and suggestions from all of you that have booked resorts with the military discount. What resorts do you get the best deal from?? What was your favorite and why? We are planning a memorial weekend trip, May 21-26, 2020 for 3, if this helps at all :-)

    We crunched some numbers, and realized that booking SOG is the best option moneywise even if we went with a value resort with 30% off, SOG is $200+ less expensive!! The resort looks beautiful and we love the fact that every room either has a patio or a balcony, and this resort is a 10 minute walk to the poly, I cannot find anything but perks and pros to staying here 😊

    I have heard that it is the equivalent of a deluxe resort.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Not
    We believed in our idea - a place to line the pockets of CEOs and shareholders

    Cinderelley, I have read that too! Hopefully some fellow intercoters will weigh in with their thoughts and maybe even reviews of SOG to give some insight

    It is a very nice resort and in a great location. I have heard the food is very good at the sit down spots but we have never eaten there. We have stayed there maybe 5 times and are going back in April. Rooms are large and have balconyís that look out. Very pretty landscaping. My favorite room looked out over one of the golf courses and we could see MK fireworks from our balcony. The staff and visitors are very friendly and polite. I have found fellow visitors a lot more friendly than at other resorts ( must be the military vibes- probably lots of them have lived away from family for long periods and are used to making new friends). The rooms are large and I like the couch. It is like a suite at regular hotels. Some of the rooms have double sinks and that is great. The showers are walk in and huge. I donít think we have ever gotten a tub. All rooms have inside hall entrances and are a lot like the luxury resorts. The lobby reminds me of a country lodge and has a huge waterfall as you enter the lobby and more outside the front entrance. A short walk to the Poly for my Kona coffee but there is also a Starbucks in the lobby. The price is great and no real downsides except I donít like the bus system. We normally walk to Poly and take buses from there or the monorail.j

    You get all the same perks as the regular Disney hotels as far as advanced dining and FP+. The only perk you donít get is the Magical Express.

    Just my opinion. Shades of Green is very mush on scale with deluxe resorts. Rooms are largest on property. Plenty of space. Beautiful grounds. They have their own bus system. May complain about it but having used it many times, I like it. You know exactly when the bus will arrive and everyone gets a seat. Easy to plan knowing this. Resort isn't decorated with Disney everywhere. I have always enjoyed the dining options at SOG. When I traveled with children it always felt safe. Benefit of AAFES on site. I bought purse $20 cheaper than at Magic Kingdom. I'm actually going through same issue right now. Which way will be best financial decision.
