A great place to play and stay

Not going to waste a lot of time talking today, I want to get you straight to the good stuff!

Last month, I had the pleasure of playing a round of golf on one of the original 1971 golf courses of Walt Disney World (more on that experience down the road). While the courses have been there since 1971, the resort only opened in 1973. Known since 1994 as Shades of Green, the resort was renamed The Disney Inn in 1986. For its first thirteen years it was the Golf Resort. Let’s take a look at how the hotel was advertised.

Many fond memories of The Disney Inn. My Dad used to play in the Disney Golf Classic every year, and that's where we stayed. I still have a Mickey watch from the inaugural tournament which my Granddad passed on to me...
