    My future son-in-law booked us rooms at shades of green. We need to update who is staying in our room for the My Disney experience so we can book other things accurately. It should just be me and my husband in this room.

    Hello Marie!  

    Welcome to planDisney – I'm happy to help you understand how to organize this special trip within My Disney Experience. Please pass on my heartfelt gratitude to your future son-in-law for his service to our great nation which makes your family eligible to stay at this wonderful resort. Shades of Green is an Armed Forces Recreation Center on the Walt Disney World Resort property, allowing United States military-associated families great benefits and proximity to the theme parks. As the service member, he is considered the “sponsor” of your family’s reservation.

    The military sponsor will be listed on each room of a family’s Shades of Green reservation, even if not physically staying in each room. Having him listed with your room as well as his own will not affect your plans or additional activities as you book them for your Disney vacation. When making dining reservations or booking an activity from the Enchanting Extras Collection, you can select which Guests from your Family and Friends List to add to those activities.

    If there are additional concerns beyond the sponsor being listed on your Shades of Green room reservation, here are some tips to ensure everything is buttoned up:

    • First, please contact Shades of Green to confirm everyone in your entire traveling party is listed on the room reservations if they are not appearing correctly. Their phone number and email is at the bottom of your reservation email, or you can find additional helpful phone numbers here.
    • Next, confirm that everyone in your traveling party is listed in your Friends & Family list in My Disney Experience. If not, be sure to add them to connect everyone’s plans for this trip.
    • Finally, if not already done - link your Shades of Green reservation to your My Disney Experience account using a computer (not the mobile app). You’ll need the reservation number at the top of your Shades of Green confirmation email.

    I recently learned that the iconic DOLE Whip® frozen pineapple treat is now available at Shades of Green, Marie! It’s incredibly refreshing and a signature Disney vacation dessert worth trying.  

    Your trip will be at the most magical time of the year, and I’m so excited for your family to experience all the wonderful holiday offerings that make these visits extra special. Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for ongoing updates about festive treats, merchandise, and special events coming this holiday season.  

    Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this amazing trip! 

    With gratitude,
