Laid back, Relaxed, & Wonderful

Orland Park, Illinois

It has been several years since we stayed at Old Key West and it was even better than I remembered! The whole atmosphere is beach, and laid back.... a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the parks! Bus access to the parks and boat access to Disney Springs! We stayed in a 2-bedroom villa in building 19 on the first. Great location within close proximity to the Hospitality house, transportation, Olivia’s Restaurant and the main pool. villas were spacious, spotless and recently refurbished. We had a Birdseye view of one of the golf holes! The units are probably the biggest of all the Disney Vacation Villas. Villa amenities include - full size washer /dryer, refrigerator, stove, large deck with a table and chairs, two large bathrooms and plenty of closets. While Old Ley West is the original DVC, it is so well maintained that it does not feel old. My kids (ages 9.9 and 12) loved the pool activities and sand castle slide. Big kudos to the Fun Team and the Lifeguards who do am excellent job. The pool food is also among the best at Disney Resorts. Having boat access to Disney Springs is really great and makes it super easy to dine at so many fabulous restaurants, shopping and just a fun place to hang out. Old Key West remains a DVC gem!

Amazing Week in Disney World

Worthing, United Kingdom

We stayed in a studio apartment on the ground floor. This comes with 2 double beds, tv, dvd player, table and chairs, kitchenette, wardrobe and a bathroom. The room was really spacious for just us 2 in it and the beds were very comfy, easily the best beds I've experienced in a hotel situation. We stayed in the Old Turtle Pond area of the resort which has a bus stop for taking you to the parks, Disney Springs or just back to the main building, where you can also get a boat to Disney Springs. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone from the housekeepers, desk staff, shop etc are really knowledgeable and happy to help. When we arrived, it was quite late (11pm) and of course it was a little thin for staff at that time, but that's to be expected when the bulk of people usually arrive during the day. If you're going to arrive late I would definitely recommend doing the bulk of the check in via the app, this speeds up the process a lot. We were then given the bell service to get to the room, as are room was almost a mile from the hospitality house. This was a great service as the bell guy was very knowledgeable of the layout of the resort and gave a quick tour of the different areas. Of course, with it being late we forgot most of it, but it was appreciated nonetheless! Just around the corner from our room was "the village" pool. This is a small pool with no lifeguard. There is also a hot tub and a small kiosk for food and drink, however this is only open 11am - 5pm The is also a drinks fountain here, for those that have the refillable cups. Too late into the holiday we realised there was a laundry there too. Useful for cleaning clothes before you come home, or if you're staying there a long time. As an addition, there are some picnic tables and bbq area next to this pool. However, I would recommend making the effort to go to a wallmart (or similar) for supplies for this as the food that is available in the shop is overpriced for that kind of thing.
