The Disney Old Key West Resort was the first Disney Vacation Club property built and offered for sale as a real estate interest to potential buyers. The units or rooms at this resort are the most spacious of all the Vacation Club resorts and the overall look and feel of Old Key West is a comfortable casual.
The layout of the property resembles an apartment complex more so than a hotel or a resort. And although I would consider the size of the units a plus or a benefit, its location is not as convenient as some of the other Vacation Club resorts.
If you like the beauty and relaxed environment that a golf course offers and want to stay in a quiet resort away from the energy and excitement of the parks then the Disney Old Key West resort is a good choice for you and your family. But, if you crave excitement and want to be in the middle of the action, another vacation club resort might better suit your needs.
For example, Disney's Saratoga Springs is located within walking distance of Downtown Disney's Marketplace and the Boardwalk Villas is located on Disney's Boardwalk and within walking distance to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Our family seems to have mixed feelings about the Disney Old Key West resort. I love it because of all the extra space and because of the fact that it is quiet at night. Everybody else in the family loves the spaciousness but it drives them nuts that they have to get in a car or catch a bus in order to find something to do other than swim or golf.
