Just saw this on the old "vintage resort pictures" thread; someone posted photos from the old Disney Inn. It's interesting to see the thing that are different now and the things that haven't changed:

Oh my goodness..thanks for the pics. I have only heard of SOG's past life as the 'Disney Inn', but I never knew what it looked like. I do recall those big old TV's in the armoires...they had identical ones at CBR. Thanks for sharing!

My husband and I ate there on our honeymoon. It was a nice quiet dinner - but I really don't remember much about it other than it was quiet and everything was green and pink. I have no idea what part of the current SOG it would have been - if it was where the garden gallery. But we remember talking about the place saying that it might be a nice place to stay without kids but it was SO expensive then. (or it seemed it for two young newly weds). Little did we know it would eventually become our place at Disney. It's fun that it retained it's quiet.

In 1998 when we stayed at SOG it was before the reno. The Garden Gallery wasn't where it is now and it was smaller (from what I remember). There's not a lot of info or pictures of the old Disney Inn that I've ever seen.

What I love about the above pictures is that they are still using the armoire's for the tv. The furniture apparently hasn't changed in 24 years :-)

Yeah, there's not much out there for photos. When you were there pre-reno in 98 was the layout as it is now with the bus location down below and the lobby up above? I don't even remember that from when we ate there in 91, so I'm curious as to how it was set up back then. I didn't know if that was a change that happened in the 2002/2003 renovation.

I know it was called The Disney Golf Resort prior to it becoming the Disney Inn and I found this snippet that gives some history: http://waltdatedworld.bravepages.com/id120.htm

I don't recall it having a snow white theme when we visited though.

We stayed at Shades for the first time in 1995, but for the life of me, I can't remember the setup. What I do remember is LOVING Evergreens.

Thank goodness, I thought we were the only ones who enjoyed the Evergreens of the past. They had this 'tower of onion rings' on a stick that my kids went crazy for...it was a big novelty back in the day. We used to order pizza and salad and bring it back to the room. What happened?

Wish I knew. We have been begging for them to bring back the Evergreens of old, but our pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears. I did love their pizza. When I went with my brother and his three kids, we practically lived on that pizza. I have since tried the pizza down at the "take out desk," but it kinda sucks.

Nope, I"m pretty sure the entire resort entrance/bus stop were on the same level, but honestly I don't remember a lot. Our boys were 12 and 14 and we walked to/from the Poly, ate in the Garden Grill and Evergreens (which was great btw) and swam in the "Mickey" pool, but other than the room I don't remember much

The lobby/check in area was much smaller than now and close to the entrance. The small AAFES was right off the lobby as was Garden Gallery. There was no parking garage, just a lot. We just know when we went back in 2005, it was so different. Our boys haven't been there since 1998 so they can't really help me with any changes. I'm going to do a more intense search and see what I can find.

This site has a bunch of before pictures. WOW!
We've never had a room with an armoire. Always just sits on the dresser.

For the life of me I cannot find the place to do reservations online. When I follow the link (http://reservations.shadesofgreen.org/admin/html) Chrome can't pull it up. Are the online reservations not working right now?

It looks like the link for online reservations is no longer on the reservation page, nor does it seem to have the availability calendar anymore.

It never worked all that well anyway. DH has always just ended up calling.

I always call for my ressies. Maybe I am just old, but I would rather talk to an actual person anyway.
