I've praised Disney for for over three decades, but can't really give a high recommendation to Old Key West. The facility is nice, but not great, the Disney Cast Members are gracious, but don't give the typically expected exceptional service, and you'll likely pay a lot of your hard earned money for a place to sleep that you can buy for considerably less on a online discount service. All in all, a pretty disappointing experience. Here's what you need to know:
1. The walls are very thin. Try and get a room without an adjoining door. I hate hearing my neighbors conversations.
2. You don't get daily maid service. That works if you are in a larger unit with a washer and dryer, but not if you are in a single. We requested clean towels and they refused.
3. Make sure you have a car because you'll likely be a long way from everything (including the Hospitality House) and you have to depend on Disney bus service which is regular, but slow. You get free parking at the resort and in the parks (that's a bonus).
4. Be prepared to be a long walk from the pool. (healthy, no problem - if you have a walker or need assistance, you'll likely be angry)
5. Be prepared to be a long walk from an ice machine. (same as #4)
6. Be prepared to be a long walk from a bus stop. (same as #4)
But then........you're on vacation, so take a deep breath and have a good time!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Experience the romance of the Florida Keys at this tranquil community of Conch Flats-a sprawling island hamlet with shimmering waterways, swaying palm trees and manicured golf-course fairways. Delight in sun-soaked pools, casual dining and such amenities as fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. A peaceful tropical paradise, Disney's Old Key West Resort is also just a boat ride away from the excitement of the Downtown Disney area. ... more less
