Shades of Green, Walt Disney World

Shades of Green is the perfect option for your next trip to Walt Disney World. The property is next to the Polynesian resort, providing easy access to the tram. The location couldn’t be more perfect for the price! Enjoy a day at WDW, and then return to the hotel for a relaxing swim in the pool. Dining options are affordable at Shades of Green vs. inside the park. Discount attraction tickets are available for purchase from the resort, or ahead of time via email. Shades of Green is definitely a resort to consider for your next vacation to Disney World. Finally – did I mention the beautiful rooms?!

Edelweiss Resort, Germany (Bavaria) 

Edelweiss is a Bavarian paradise! We stayed there after our first experience with Space A Travel. The property is beneath the Bavarian Alps, next to Zugspitze. After check-in, take in the beautiful alpine vistas from your balcony, relax in the hot tub, or dine at one of the delicious eateries. Edelweiss rooms are “lodge type” with beautiful furnishings and plush bedding. Tours of Bavaria can be arranged at the activity desk for an incredible value. In addition, resort caters to both adults and families alike- a game room for kids, and bar for adults!

We were all very happy to finally get to sit down and eat our first meal at Edelweiss Resort in Germany!
