Shades of Green released a statement regarding the closure of the walkway. Since that will no longer be available to guests, the resort will provide more buses to the Ticket and Transportation Center. Here’s what the statement said:

“Present & Future Guests,


As you know, there are always exciting things happening around Walt Disney World Resort, and we want to keep you updated on the latest developments.

Starting Monday, May 1, 2023, the World Drive Expansion Project will begin between Shades of Green and the Grand Floridian Resort. We know that it’s a lovely stroll on the walkway from our hotel to the Polynesian Village Resort unfortunately, it will no longer be accessible.

But don’t worry, we’ve got your back! We’re adding extra buses to the Transportation and Ticket Center route, so you can still easily get to your destination. And the best part? It’s totally free!

If you prefer to use your own vehicle, you can still do so, but please note that you will be responsible for the parking fee at the theme parks. Alternatively, you could use a ride-sharing service like Uber, Lyft, or the Minnie Van service connected by Lyft – all available within the Walt Disney World Resort.

We understand that change can be tough, but we hope you’ll bear with us as we work to make things even better for you. We’re always here to help and make your stay as magical as possible.”

Shades of Green is a military owned and operated resort at Walt Disney World. It’s not owned by Disney and can’t be booked through Disney’s website. A valid military I.D. is required to access the resort.
