The planning stages of our Disney trip has begun. Now that I have a better understanding of the how the Disney Military Salute Tickets work thanks to Steve Bell’s of Military Disney Tips guest post a few weeks ago , my only focus at the moment has been what Disney resort to stay in . Shades of Green was in the top running but the truth of the matter is my opinion has changed as far as value goes. We stayed at SOG back in 2008 and had a ball. You can read the recap of my stay there here. Frankly though SOG is nice ,but has gotten more costly and while their is no tax I now feel like I was missing something while staying there. It could have been the fact that the resort is big but there was not much else to do for the kids besides the pool and the arcade. The look of the resort is a golf green and relaxing to an adult but to a kid , it leaves alot to be desired. It could just be the lack of “Disney Feeling”.
Just for the record the recap I mention above was written in 2009 so yes my opinion has changed.
This August thanks to the Disney Military Discount we have chosen to stay at a Disney Value Resort for only $59.99 a night. You see many people know about the discounted Disney tickets for military but alot are glossing over the huge savings Disney is offering at select resorts.
There are four Disney value resorts and a fifth one is currently in the building stages. Originally we decided on the Disney Pop Century Resort because currently they are the only value resort with suites. Unfortunately they were all booked up so now we are in the process of choosing from the remaining three. Due to the fact that we are die hard “Toy Story” fans I think the All Star Movie Resort is in our future. The Value resorts offer a better selection of kids activities, a more kid friendly themed environment, character shaped pools, arcades and kid friendly food courts.
