Historical Traveler Reviews Disney's Old Key West Resort Orlando
While most people that stay here rave about this resort, it isnt' one of our favorites on Disney property. The rooms ARE a very nice size and the view of the golf course can be nice.......we just feel the the resort is spread out too much. We have stayed on property at many hotels, and this one is above average, but not the best. The plus is the kitchen units and spacious accomodations. we would stay here again, but it wouldn't be our first pick. Also, we found the restaurant to be $$ and not worth the money.
Can't Wait to Go Back!
I've stayed in both a studio and a 1-bedroom at Old Key West and loved them both! The studio is roughly the size of a normal hotel room and the 1-bedroom is HUGE! It's a beautiful resort secluded away from the commotion of the parks, but still within a short bus ride. We take advantage of the grills available near the pools and have a cookout at least once per trip. The kitchen (or kitchenette in the studio) is convenient for when we feel like staying in and making a snack. I'm already looking forward to the next trip 'home'.
Best rooms in orlando
You can't find a bigger room anywhere in orlando that is inside the park, comfort for the whole family, fun for the kids, and very relaxing for the adults.
Spoil Yourself & a laundry room means pack less clothes
One of the most comfortable places you could ever stay. Better than a home away from home because it's even cleaner. Walk to the closest pool or bus to your next attraction. Everyone's always so friendly and satisifed. On more than 1/2 of our 24 trips to WDW we have stayed here. It's always reliable to be the most restful place you can stay at WDW. The full kitchens & laundrys in the 1br or larger units save you money and time and allow us to pack super light yet have clean clothes. Refrigerators and kitchens allow us to eat at the best restaurants - twice. (the 2nd time is the leftovers the next day or so). The money we save cooking a few meals there or cereal, etc. for breakfast saves a huge chunk of $$. Golf course and water feature views add to the relaxation. Yet you're right there in the middle of WDW.Can't go wrong. Also we love the Wilderness log cabins with their kitchens, forest location, and proximity to laundry, pools, etc. - A little known treat.Another favorite of ours for comfort and relaxation is the
Welcome home! It's not just a slogan. From the minute we arrived at the check in counter we felt like we were friends and neighbors. Its a wonderful neighborhood! Our one bedroom room had a large porch accessable from both the kitchen and the very large king-bedded room. The large utility room with a washer and dryer; the fully supplied, open concept kitchen with full sized appliences; and the casually elegant living room;all combined to make us wish this were our home!
In October 2002 we had the opportunity to stay at Old Key West. It was absolutely wonderful. We were in a two bedroom condo that was beautiful. It was very spacious, very clean. We couldn't have ask for anything better. I've been to Disneyworld to many times to count and I will have to say that these accomodations were the best that we have stayed in. The grounds were postcard quality. Olivia's was delicious and very friendly as well as child friendly. My five year old niece says it's her favorite place to eat now! Hopefully our next trip we can go back to Old Key West! I promise if you try it you will LOVE it!
Wonderful Family Resort
We stayed at Old Key West Nov. 1 - 6, 2002 and would highly recommend this resort for families. We had 6 adults, 2 children and 1 infant in our party and stayed comfortably in a 2 bedroom. It was wonderful having the kitchen and waher/dryer. It was so much better than a standard hotel room.
When we got to our suite the master bedroom carpeting was flooded. A pipe had broken in the suite next door and leaked through the wall. We called the office and the manager and maintenance were there within minutes. After relocating us to a new suite the manager gave our entire family a complimentary dinner at Olivias! The food was great and it was a nice way to start our stay there.
The pool was nice, never overcrowded and the hot tub was a personal favorite. Taking the boat to Downtown Disney is very convenient and a fun way to get there. The busses come and go on a regular basis and their transportation system is well organized.
The resort itself is very well maintained with a tropical feel. The rooms are very clean and staff pleasant. All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this resort! We cant wait to go back!
Could not have been better.
My wife and I stayed at the Vacation Club a couple of years ago. We have stayed at several of the properties, both Disney and external, and Old Key West beats them all hands down. Every detail was perfect. We had a one bedroom, 1.5 bath, condo that was huge. Full kitchen, whirlpool tub the size of a hottub and a laundry room. It even had a private deck that bordered a canal and one of the golf greens. We could not have asked for more.
We loved it, we stayed in a two bedroom villa for 6 days. I will not go back to Disney without staying in a Villa! We had everything we needed, it was like we were at home. There were five of us total and plenty of room. We took a 2 year old for his first time to Disney and it was perfect, he could take a nap and go to bed at normal time. While the rest of us had plenty of space to still watch TV, move around, etc.
A perfect home away from home
This place was great for families with kids. It is luxurious, yet practical. Condos are large and have all the conveniences of home. With 2 little ones, I even did laundry everyday, just like home- a good thing because we had a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer in our condo. We began each day with a healthy breakfast prepared in our fullsize kitchen. The best part of staying at a Disney property was shopping and shopping then have your packages delivered to the resort! This place has us thinking about becoming a part of the Disney vacation club!

After a much needed rest we were off to HWS at 9:55am. The bus drive was a little slow because of traffic this morning but when we arrived we headed to The Great Movie Ride. That ride was updated earlier this year. There was a 35 min wait (we did not fast pass this) but they were looking for party of two's so we were sent to the front of the line. …

The effort that went into the floats and costumes were ...
