You’ll probably come through either I-75 to the west or I-95 to the east. Once you make it to the I-4 corridor, you’ll find the Walt Disney World highway system is extremely easy to navigate, with signs that are well marked. Shades of Green is located in the Magic Kingdom resort area, right across from Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
