Old Key West Resort

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance Originally known as the Disney Vacation Club Resort, Old Key West is Disney's first attempt at a timeshare.


Old Key West Resort (previously known as the Disney Vacation Club Resort) is Disney's first attempt at a timeshare-like resort. Member information is available at many locations throughout Walt Disney World...and you can get a tour and a review of the program any time you'd like. The resort itself, though, is available both to members (making use of their timeshare) and guests (paying cold, hard cash).

Based on a Key West theme, the resort is more spread out than many at WDW. Light pastel colors, tin roofs, breezeways, breadboard trim, and walkways paved with crushed seashells all pull you into the Key West of yesteryear. Several different types of accommodations are available including a deluxe room (larger than most, but still a typical hotel room, but with two queen-sized beds), a one bedroom vacation home (with a full kitchen, living room, and master bedroom suite with a Jacuzzi and king-sized bed), a two-bedroom vacation home (basically a one bedroom and deluxe room stuck together), and a vacation villa (two stories, three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and huge!!).

There are two themed pools along with two smaller pools, hot tubs, sauna, and a workout room.  There's a full service restaurant, a gift shop, bar and snack bar.


The master bedrooms generally have a single King sized bed, with two queen sized beds and a childs day-bed in the second bedroom.

Each room has a whirlpool tub in the master bathroom.

Each 2BR room has it's own laundry room.

Food and Drink

Olivia's is the OKWR formal restaurant, but it's really not that formal. A Winnie-the-Pooh character breakfast is held here. OKWR also has a couple of snack and drink bars on Turtle Krawl. The one that is most colorfully named is the "Gurgling Suitcase".


Turtle Krawl, the resort's entertainment area, includes a general store, a library, a themed pool area, an exercise room, volleyball, tennis, and shuffleboard courts. Several types of boats are also available for rental for a cruise down Trumbo Canal to the Sassagoula River (which runs north to Port Orleans and Dixie Landings and South to the Village Marketplace).




Guest Services

Disney Transportation

Downtown Disney is accessible by bus or boat, though the boat service stops in the late afternoon.

Old Key West Resort is serviced by bus. Frankly, the bus is my preferred mode of transportation at WDW anyway. The monorails tend to get very crowded. Boats take so long to load and travel.

As far as the buses are concerned, granted, they are noisy and smelly, but Disney takes great pains to keep them very clean. The air conditioning almost always works. Furthermore, the buses drop you off so close to your hotel door, that it's hard to complain about them too much.

In addition to the buses, water taxis to the Village Marketplace / Pleasure Island area are available, too.

Directions to the Resort

Old Key West is located on the Buena Vista Golf Course
