Disney’s Old Key West Resort is the oldest Disney Vacation Club property!
This resort dates back to the beginning of the DVC concept. It opened in 1991 as the first and only Disney Vacation Club Resort.
Old Key West is a very large spread out resort, with many sections being quite a long way from the lobby and main area.
You will find 4 room types at Old Key West.
Deluxe Studio – $474 – $809 – Room Size, 390 square feet
Studios at Disney’s Old Key West Resort features 2 queen sized beds, a nightstand, a small round table with 2 chairs, a ceiling fan, a TV, a closet, a small patio/balcony, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette comes with a microwave, toaster, 12-cup coffee maker, a sink, and a mini-refrigerator. The patio/balcony features 2 chairs and a small table. The Studios are the only Disney Vacation Club studios that feature 2 beds rather than a bed and pull-out couch. Views of Water, Woodlands or Fairways.
One Bedroom Villas – $645 – $1150 – Room Size, 1,005 square feet
One Bedroom Villas feature a large great room with a couch, love seat, a large plush chair that opens into a twin bed, flat-panel TV, 4-person dining room table, and a fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom features a king sized bed, a chair with ottoman, and a large closet. In the master bath, there is a two-person jacuzzi tub, 2 sinks, and a stand-up shower. Attached to the master bathroom is a laundry room, with a full-sized washer and dryer. Views of Water, Woodlands or Fairways.
Two Bedroom Villas – $922 – $1798 – Room Size, 1,410 square feet
A Two Bedroom Villa is the same as a One Bedroom, plus an additional bedroom off the living room, which is almost 100% comparable to a Studio. The only exception is that in some of the Two Bedroom Villas there is an additional walk-in closet in place of the studio entrance door and an additional sink in place of the kitchenette. Views of Water, Woodlands or Fairways.
Three Bedroom Grand Villas – $1973 – $3221 – Room Size, 2,375 square feet
The Grand Villas sleep 12 people, and feature 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, 2 double beds, and 1 queen sleeper sofa. They have 4 bathrooms and a very large living room area with all of the amenities contained in the One and Two Bedroom Villas. Grand Villas are the least expensive Grand Villas compared to the other Disney Vacation Club Resorts. Views of Water, Woodlands or Fairways.

An Epcot Area Resort
Bus transportation is available to all Disney World guest areas. There are 5 bus stops located around the resort.
Boat Transportation Disney Springs with connecting service to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort at Disney Springs.
It is possible to walk to Disney Springs via a circuitous route, but it’s a haul. It’s 1 mile from property edge to property edge, and OKW is a large resort, you might walk a mile within the resort itself.
Overnight Parking is free at the Disney World Deluxes.
Valet service is $33 per night (sales tax included). Note: due to ongoing staffing shortages, valet service is only available to those with a valid disability parking permit.
Old Key West, like its namesake has a relaxed feel. It feels isolated from the rest of Disney World.
This resort is very large and spread out. The longest walk within the resort is 1 mile (that’s one end of the resort to the other).
Unless you want to spend lots of time chilling at your resort, we might recommend staying elsewhere.
