You can't purchase the Disney Dining Plan, you have to be staying at a Disney owned and operated resort. With Disney you have to purchase a vacation package that includes the room and full price park tickets to get the dining plan. There isn't an option to purchase the DDP independent of a Disney resort stay. Shades of Green is owned and operated by the Army MWR program. However, SoG has two dining plans for the Garden Gallery restaurant in the resort. The Sunrise Package is for breakfast and the Red, White and Blue Package is for breakfast and dinner in the SoG resort. You'd have to decide if getting one of the Shades of Green dining packages and hours ofvthe restaurant fits your family and your park touring style.

Does anyone else wish that these tickets were for 5 or 6 park days... priced accordingly? I do. I remember years ago...when they were 5 days. I know that for a party of 2 or 3 it is fine because each person can use 2 of the tickets but for larger families......more park days would be nice.

So are you saying 2 people can share one ticket?

No, the other way around. Two people can buy 4 tickets and each go for 8 days. Only works for 3 or less people since you can only get 6 each year.

I do! Don't mean to complain because I really appreciate the deal but I never go for only 4 days so I always end up buying full price tix. Still the room discount is something I take advantage of almost every year!

Yes, we usually do five day trips as well. Our last trip, we bought the four day and fortunately each had single day tix we used for our arrival day (to take advantage of EMH).

NO parties of 2 people can get 6 tickets and split them so they each have 3 four day park tickets.

Parties of 3 people can each have 2 tickets..giving them 8 days.

So I was just trying to book our rooms for our September trip today and then panic...can't get all of our nights right now. Hoping the other nights open up but YIKES!

On another note, anybody been at Shades of Green during their OKTOBERFEST celebration? Would love some reviews of that. As it turns out, we will be there for it and I'm wondering now if I should cancel some of my ADRs at Disney restaurants to attend this instead??

Food & Wine and now Oktoberfest! Gonna be an interesting vacation for sure!

You can't get it at SoG, but you can book a military package at a Disney Resort and get it that way, with the room discount, and still buy your tickets through the military. This is our prefered way of going. Pop with the discount is cheaper than SoG, we can get the dining plan, and we get picked up at the airport.

Hi! I just cancelled a few days at SOG this afternoon, we cut down our trip to split stay somewhere else, not sure when you were trying to book, but I just cancelled for 9/20-9/23 and then 9/29-10/1. Hope maybe this helps!
