Disney's Old Key West Resort® first opened at Walt Disney World® Resort on December 20, 1991. It was the original Disney Vacation Club® (DVC) timeshare property, and as such was originally named Disney’s Vacation Club Resort. In January 1996 DVC expanded their timeshare offerings at the Walt Disney World Resort, and so the resort was renamed to Disney’s Old Key West Resort. The resort is themed to celebrate the Conch Republic of Key West, Florida, and enjoys quite the laid-back feeling that a southern Florida provides.
The resort has a total of 761 villas, comprised of Deluxe Studios, 1-Bedroom, 2-Bedroom and 3-Bedroom Grand Villas.
- Deluxe Studios are 376 square feet and can accommodate up to four guests, plus one child under age 3 in a crib. They include a kitchenette, two queen-size beds and a private porch or balcony.
- 1-Bedrooms are 942 square feet, and can accommodate up to five guests, plus one child under age 3 in a crib. They include a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen-size sleeper sofa plus a sleeper chair in the living room, whirlpool tub in the bathroom, and a private porch or balcony.
- 2-Bedrooms are 1,333 square feet, and can accommodate up to nine guests, plus one child under 3 in a crib. They offer all that a 1-Bedroom has plus a second bedroom with 2 queen-size beds and a second full bathroom.
- 3-Bedroom Grand Villas are 2,375 square feet, and can accommodate up to 12 guests, plus one child under 3 in a crib. They offer all of the amenities of the 2-Bedroom, plus they include a third bedroom with 2 queen-size beds, a third full bathroom, a full dining room, additional private balcony and are two-story rooms.
As a DVC timeshare property, the villas are owned by members through DVC’s points-based system. DVC maintains about 3-4% ownership of the total point allocation for each of their timeshare resorts, therefore rooms are available for rent year-round to non-members.
The resort includes 1 feature pool and 3 leisure or “quiet” pools, a children’s pool, whirlpools, sauna, fitness center, Community Hall family recreation room, tennis courts, fishing, marina watercraft rentals, arcade and recreational activities. It also features 1 table service restaurant: Olivia’s Café serving breakfast lunch and dinner; 2 quick-service counter locations: Good’s Food to Go, and the Turtle Shack. A bar is also on-site: Gurgling Suitcase.
