Very nice resort. Really large rooms. Water taxi was very convenient and takes only 10 minutes to Disney springs. Pools are heated and community room has a lot of entertainments for kids. We enjoyed Old Key West!

Pros: Uncrowded, quiet the grounds are well vegetated and beautiful.
Cons: The bed were pretty good but not top end.
Location: The middle of Disney, 25 minutes by car to Universal, 1 hour to the Kennedy space center.
We booked a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen and dining room as we had 5 travel It was very clean and quiet located across from a swimming pool. The units stacked 3 high with with parking in the front. The property is huge but the bus service is excellent. Approximately 10 minutes waits to go to any Disney property. You can catch a boat to Disney springs and in the evening it a very nice ride. The restaurant is homey and quite good if you don't have the energy to cook or go to Disney Springs. Disney springs has some good restaurants and some fair. Reserve as early as possible when you can. The staff is all very friendly and work hard to please. The main lobby area has a pool that is quite good for kids on rest days. Had a great time.

Pros: Check-in, service, restaurant, pool, amenities, Disney transportation, location.
Cons: Quicker walking access to restaurant & main pool area (ex: bridges across canal).
Top notch Disney customer service and cleanliness. Not as luxurious as 4 or 5 star hotels, but worth it to stay on Disney property. Had a really good dining experience at hotel restaurant. Nice pool & amenities as well. Very nice to have Ferry to Disney Springs.

Pros: spacious room, Disney's public transportation, Golf and other amenities
Location: Near Disney Springs, Orlando Outlet, I4 (with easy access to other parks).
If you intend to spend some days at Disney with the little ones, Old Key West is a very good choice. With big apartments including a full kitchen, washing machine and dryer. With all the basic material that you have at home. Good transportation system in and out of the parks and a great staff.

Very good check in staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and public areas all look good and clean with great key west theme which we loved however this is not carried through in the rooms which seem dated and very dark and not the cleanest I've stayed in the location was perfect for us as we could walk to Disney springs down the nature trail in the daytime and the boat ride is lovely in the evenings but one of the boat staff were very rude to my mother in law on her ecv the pools are lovely and well kept as are the grounds we would stay here again but only after rooms are renovated because for the price you pay id expect much more especially from Disney
