Studio/Second Bedroom Spaces at Disney’s Old Key West Resort

PHOTO TOUR OF A SECOND BEDROOM/STUDIO AT DISNEY’S OLD KEY WEST RESORT

Disney's Old Key West Resort

Disney’s Old Key West Resort has four room types–Studios, One-Bedroom Villas, Two-Bedroom Villas, and Grand Villas.

You can see the bones of each of the first three room types in a Two-Bedroom Villa, and that’s what this photo tour covers, with a page on each major space.

Two Bedroom Villa Floor Plan Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

See the Two Bedroom floor plan.

At the lower right you’ll see a space with two beds.  That’s basically the same as a Studio, and the rest of the spaces are the same as a One-Bedroom Villa.

Some Two-Bedroom Villas are literally the combination of a Studio and a One-Bedroom, with locking doors between, and two entrances–one to the Studio and one to the One Bedroom.  These are called “lockoffs.”

Other Two-Bedroom Villas are designed as single units, called “dedicated” Two Bedrooms, and don’t have the second outside door or kitchenette.  Instead they have a second closet where the outside door is shown in the above floor plan, and a simplified outer bath where the kitchenette would be.

My photos are from a Two-Bedroom Villa designed as a single dedicated unit. I’ll comment on the differences you’ll find in a studio/lockoff as we go.

THE SECOND BEDROOM/”STUDIO” SIDE OF A TWO BEDROOM VILLA AT DISNEY’S OLD KEY WEST RESORT

Hall Closet Second Bedroom Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Studios have an entry from the outside corridor, as well as a lockable entry to a One Bedroom Villa. The second bedroom of a dedicated Two Bedroom Villa has a closet in the space where the entry door would be in a Studio.

Around the corner is a short corridor the bath. On one side is another closet–the only closet in a Studio, the second in a dedicated second bedroom.

Hall Sink Second Bedroom Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

The other side of this corridor has this sink.  In a Studio, it would be joined by a mini-fridge, coffeemaker and microwave.

At the end of this corridor behind a door is the full bath.

Tub Second Bedroom Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

It is undivided, all one open space–but with the second sink just outside functions just fine for families.

Bed Side Second Bedroom Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Two queen beds dominate the rest of the airy, large space. At the other DVC resorts, Studios come with a queen and a fold-out couch (some also have a fifth sleeping spot in a Murphy bed or fold-out chair); at Old Key West, Studios have two queens.  The loss of the couch will be made up for most by the better sleeping quality of the bed.

TV Side Second Bedroom Disney's Old Key West Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

The other side of the room has a table and chairs, and a dresser and TV.  In this shot you can also see the closet on the left that would be an entry were this a lockoff-studio; in the center the corridor to the bath and kitchenette; and on the right the open connecting door to the rest of the Two Bedroom Villa.

Studio Porch Disney's Old Key West Resort

All Studios bookable as Studios have their own balcony. In Two-Bedroom Villas,  the second bedroom won’t have this balcony unless it is a “lock-off”–that is, a combination of a Studio and a One-Bedroom Villa.

While there’s nothing special about these second bedroom/Studios, they are large, spacious, and quite livable. As Studios, some families will find the second queen a much more comfortable place to sleep than the fold-out couches in other DVC studios.

The downside to the 1BR set-up is the bathroom, it has a separate tub and shower but only one toilet. I’d rather have one bathing area and 2 toilets. The sink is an alternative to the shower for washing up, it doesn’t make such a good alternative for the toilet.
