Disney’s Old Key West Resort

Pros and Cons of Disney's Old Key West

Overview

Feel like you are in Key West Florida in this quiet community. Small waterways, hammocks, and palm trees are all part of Old Key West Resort. This was Disney’s First Deluxe Villa Resort and is still a favorite of Disney Vacation Club members as it actually feels like a home away from home. A great destination for anyone that is interested in golf during their stay. Old Key West feels like a remote island vacation but still has all the amenities that Disney has to offer.
