Disney's Old Key West Resort*

What we love

  • Laid-back, island theme makes it feel like a vacation within your Disney vacation
  • Cool pastels and Victorian architecture
  • Some of the largest rooms on property
  • One of the most affordable Deluxe Villa Resorts on property
  • Villas have water, golf course or tropical views
  • Sleeps up to 12 in the 3-bedroom grand villa
  • Boat service to Disney Springs® Area
  • Olivia's Cafe is one of Disney's hidden gems
  • The resort sits on Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course
  • Bike and surrey bike rentals
  • Free parking!
  • Offers tennis, volleyball plus old-fashioned games such as pool, foosball, and shuffleboard

Keep in Mind

  • Only three buildings offer elevators to the upper-level floors
  • Resort grounds are quite large; it can be a hike from some buildings to the feature pool and restaurants
  • There are 5 bus stops within the resort that offer transportation to the parks
  • Olivia's is the only table-service restaurant on property, although the dining at Disney Springs® Area is just a boat ride away
  • In some 1-bedrooms (buildings below 30), bathrooms can only be accessed from the master bedroom

Notable Facts

  • Old Key West was Disney's first vacation club property and opened in 1991
  • The deluxe studios are the only ones on the property that offer 2 beds rather than a bed and a pull-out couch
  • The main feature pool includes a dry sauna (inside the lighthouse)

Frog Family Tips

  • Request a dual bathroom entry and near elevator, if these are important to you
  • Request a villa near the pool on an upper floor for less potential noise (Miller's Road area)
  • Consider renting a car for a stay here, especially if your building is further from the pool and dining
  • Stop by Olivia's Cafe to see family photos from all of the Disney Vacation Club members

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families wanting longer stays, who seek all the amenities of a Deluxe Villa Resort at the best price and appreciate the island life

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Park Transportation - Overnight self-parking at the hotel is free and depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Skyliner, Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also within walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants, and more.
