Old Key West at Night

Located near Disney Springs, Disney's Old Key West Resort is the first of Disney's Vacation Club Resorts (in fact, at one time it was simply known as Disney's Vacation Club Resort). Old Key West opened in late 1991. This sprawling resort's design was influenced by the architecture and landscape of the Florida Keys.


Resembling a resort community, the complex contains homey villas and a plethora of activities and amenities to keep guests busy. These villas are large and comfortable, and the studios here are the only ones that have 2 queen sized beds rather than the standard bed/sleeper sofa combination found in the other DVC properties.

Old Key West has a full service restaurant in addition to a quick serve location. Two bars provide plenty of opportunity to socialize over drinks. An arcade, boat and bike rentals, fitness center, numerous playgrounds, tennis courts, several pools, and a general store round out the offering here. Experience the laid back Florida Keys lifestyle at Old Key West, Disney's Original Vacation Club.
