Disney's Old Key West Resort

Walt Disney World

Disney's Old Key West Resort is a 761 room Resort that conjures up the leisurely romance of the Florida Keys. Discover the tranquil community of Conch Flats—an island hamlet of brilliant green landscapes, pastel-colored Victorian architecture and ornate gingerbread accents. Nestled among swaying palm trees, shimmering waterways and the lush golf fairways of the Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, the Resort's Guest rooms include studio, one-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom Villas. Disney's Old Key West Resort is a Disney Vacation Club resort at the Walt Disney World Resort. It opened on December 20, 1991 and was formerly known as Disney's Vacation Club Resort up until January 1996 when it was renamed. It was the first Disney Vacation Club Timeshare Resort, and has the largest rooms of any of the seven Disney Vacation Club Resorts. The accommodations include kitchen facilities and a laundry room. The rooms are designed in a Key West theme. Rooms are also available year-round for rental by non-members (and members) as Disney Vacation Club retains ownership of a majority of the resort.

The central building, named the Hospitality House, has 2 restaurants, along with a lounge, store, arcade and more. Adjacent to the Hospitality House is the "Recreation, Exercise, Swimming and Tennis" complex—a great place to work out on state-of-the-art exercise equipment, relax in the sauna or rejuvenate with a healing massage.

Enjoy our 4 heated pools, the largest of which boasts 149,600-gallons and offers a water slide, children's pool and spa. Take advantage of ample opportunities for active fun, including facilities for basketball, tennis, volleyball, golf and boating. And when you're ready to dine, treat yourself to Olivia's Café, a casual restaurant serving up Florida seafood and American cuisine with a Caribbean twist. At the end of the day, retire to your studio or Villa featuring convenient home amenities like kitchens or kitchenettes, living rooms and in-room laundry facilities. There may be some distance between your room and the Hospitality House. If you or a member of your party have difficulty walking distances, you may wish to consider a car—parking is available adjacent to the front door of your Villa.
