Not just a bad Disney experience, one of our worst hotel experiences ever

Although the units themselves were charming to look at and roomy, the cleanliness, availability of help, ease of use, and service were beyond awful. The room was dirty when we checked in (pubic hair on the toilet seat, hair hanging from the dryer, dirty socks in the room). We were in building #37 which was about a mile away from the "front desk." And there was no way to get to the front desk without using the full Disney Resort bus system. In other words, a minimum of half an hour to get to the "front desk." Their bell desk was not responsive. But the worst, by far, was Monday evening when we returned from the Magic Kingdom. I had 3 of my children and 2 grandchildren. It took us almost an hour waiting in line for a bus, and then on the bus making multiple stops, and then finally to our room, and none of our 5 bands (the 2 year old didn't have) would open the door. It didn't blink red, it went green, it's just the door wouldn't open. There was an employee parked in a golf cart right out in front of our building, so I asked him for help. He told me to go to the front desk. I had 5 children in tow, so not a great solution. I asked if he could radio for help. Nope. Look at the door, there was clearly something wrong. Nope. He stood about 15 feet from the door and laughed at us. When I said I was disappointed in the service, he argued with me. And then he told me that he had a key but wouldn't let me into the room. The service was not just bad, but so bad, that it had the exact opposite effect that going to a Disney property usually has. I didn't feel the "welcome home," but mocked, humiliated, and hurt. While we usually leave Disney planning our next trip, I'm not sure I want to ever go back.

Honeymoon

As Disney Vacation Club members we stayed here for a week in a 1 bed villa. They are HUGE! So much space....bedroom, living area, bathroom and utility area. The resort is large and spread out which makes it feel very quiet and relaxing, great after a day at the theme parks. The bus service does take a while to circle the resort but that's the pay off for a large resort. Definitely recommended, but you can't go wrong with any Disney deluxe resort!

Best Property at Disney

We cooked a turkey for Thanksgiving and had more than enough room in a two bedroom suite. Pulled two tables together to seat 7 for Thanksgiving dinner. We have been at Old Key West on several occasions and can't think of anything we have not liked.

Thank GOD, We Rented a Car!

Hotel is a typical dated timeshare. We had a two bedroom villa for our family of 4. I'm glad that we had the space. This particular option comes with a washer and dryer in the unit. The villa was clean, but it was a little crusty in the corners, typical of any living space that needs refurbishment. I believe they are doing some updates as we had new laminate flooring throughout the main living areas.The room had a balcony/veranda area, but due to Zika, we didn't really hang out there. The hotel left a can of repellent in the room for our use.Everyone sings the praises of the Disney Transportation. Yes, Disney does a great job of making sure that you never have a need to leave the property. But here are some reasons why you would want to rent a car while staying at Old Key West:1. The grocery store has better prices and you aren't limited in your selections as you are with the delivery services and Amazon Pantry.2. The Premium Outlets are so close! So if you want to get kids clothes, purses and other items for super cheap it is convenient to just drive when you want to go.3. You will get sick of Disney food. We left and did the Whole Foods buffet one night and went over to Celebration, FL as well, just to round out the vacation.4. Golf on the premises is super expensive. There are less expensive options within a reasonable driving distance.5. Universal Studios is not close, so a car comes in handy.We booked our rental car from Costco Travel because renting from Disney was over TWICE the price. We went right to the Alamo desk at the airport and drove directly to the hotel using the WAZE app on our phone. It was great. We took the Disney transportation only to the parks. On occasion we had to wait for the bus, like after the evening fireworks. During the day, however, when we left the park to go back to the hotel for a midday swim, it was pretty prompt. Note that Magic Kingdom feels rather FAR from this hotel. Epcot was super close.One more note, there is no liquor for sale at Magic Kingdom, so be sure to pregame or bring some in a water bottle.
