    My daughter and I along with a couple of friends are headed to WDW in Sept. We are staying at Shades of Green. Can you tell me if my daughter can bring her mermaid tail to swim in? Where better to pretend to be Ariel than Disney? Thanks!

    Hi, Cindy!

    Welcome to Walt Disney World! While I have never stayed at Shades of Green, I have heard nothing but great things about this resort. The location is so handy being close to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and the Magic Kingdom. 

    I looked at the Shades of Green website, and regarding pool toys it states: "all guest(s) must check in with the lifeguard on duty and get permission prior to usage." The usage of your daughter's swim tail would be up to their discretion. 

    The pool areas at Shades of Green look amazing! There is nothing better than lounging pool side for a nice mid-day break after all the hustle and bustle at the theme parks. Take time to relax and soak in the Florida sunshine.

    Wishing you a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
