Review: Disney’s Old Key West Resort, Page 4

By Dave Shute

This is the fourth page of this review of Disney’s Old Key West Resort. For the first page, see this.


1 Room Near Lobby at Disney's Old Key West ResortThere are currently 8 official Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World.

However, I have come to count them as ten, because two of the resorts–Saratoga Springs and the Animal Kingdom Villas–have two very different areas.

In order of their appropriateness for first time family visitors to Walt Disney World, they are:

  1. The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  2. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas–Jambo House
  3. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas–Kidani Village
  4. Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  5. The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
  6. Disney’s Beach Club Villas
  7. Disney’s Boardwalk Villas
  8. Disney’s Old Key West Resort
  9. Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, main resort
  10. Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, Treehouse Villas area.

These resorts are available to anyone to reserve through the regular Walt Disney World website or resort reservations phone number at 407-939-7675.

They also are available to the general public at great discounts through renting points from a Disney Vacation Club member. (They are also of course available to these members themselves.)

All Disney Vacation Club resorts have studio rooms, One-Bedroom Villas, and Two-Bedroom Villas.

Most have Grand Villas as well.

Old Key West floor plans of all four room types, which were all renovated in 2011-2012,  are below.

Studio Floor Plan Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.netAt Old Key West, Studios sleep 4 and have a microwave and a mini-fridge.

Disney's Old Key West Resort Bedroom 2 Bed SideSee the second page of this review for multiple photos of a Studio--disguised as the second bedroom of a Two-Bedroom Villa!

One Bedroom Villa Floor Plan Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.netThe One-Bedroom Villas sleep 5, including three on fold-out beds in a full kitchen/dining/living space.

Disney's Old Key West Resort Master Bed from WindowsSee the second page for more images of the master bedroom, and the third page for images of the combined kitchen/living/dining space.

Disney's Old Key West Resort PorchThey also have large porch or balcony, and a separate master bedroom.

Two Bedroom Villa Floor Plan Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.netTwo-Bedroom Villas add a second four-person bedroom (similar, or identical, to a Studio) to the amenities of a One-Bedroom, and sleep 9.

Disney's Old Key West Resort Corner WindowsFunctionally they combine the amenities of a Studio and a One-Bedroom Villa, so the images on pages 2 and 3 all apply to Two-Bedroom Villas as well.

Grand Villa Floor Plan Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.netGrand Villas sleep 12 in almost twice the space of a Two-Bedroom Villa, in three bedrooms plus sleeper sofas. At Old Key West, Grand Villas are two-story spaces.

Grand Villas hold three more people in space almost twice as big a the 9-person Two-Bedroom Villas.
The extra space downstairs comes from doubling the already commodious size of the kitchen/dining/living area, and moving the second bedroom the the upper level–where it is joined by a third bedroom, also sleeping four.

These spaces are also about twice as expensive as Two-Bedroom Villas…

You all haven’t found the sponsors of this site quite appealing enough yet for me to have been able to afford to stay in a Grand Villa, but I’m sure they are quite nice!!  And a fellow can dream…look for a review of one here within the decade…

(To each of the capacity figures above, you can add one more kid under 3 at time of check in who sleeps in a crib.)
