Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own, private resort in the midst of “The Happiest Place on Earth”?

You do if you’re a member of any branch of the U.S. military. That’s according to Edward Fagan, general manager of Shades of Green, a U.S. Department of Defense-owned resort on the grounds of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

“Disney is a place where dreams come true,” Fagan said. “It’s the number-one family tourist destination in the world. In its midst we have a beautiful resort. Every member of the military owns this resort. This is something that is provided by the U.S. military as a thank you for your service.”
