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 Disney Skyliner, monorails, 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.
  • Early Access to Dining Reservations - Disney Resort guests can make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) for their entire vacation 60 days in advance, giving them the earliest access to the most popular restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest.
  • 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.
  • Recreation and Fitness Activities - Disney Resort hotels offer a variety of wellness activities through Disney Family Wellness. Some favorites include dancing to Disney songs, family fun walks and, yes, even pickleball!
  • Travel Light with MagicBands - Guests of Official Walt Disney World® Hotels can check out MagicBands that let them into the theme parks, unlock their Disney Resort hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, make purchases and more – just with a tap of their band! Disney Resort hotel guests also have the option to purchase a MagicBand+ at a special discount before they arrive for their stay, allowing them to be an interactive part of the magic.
