Why are Grand Villas at Old Key West so popular?

Not only are the Grand Villas at Disney's Old Key West Resort the largest villas of all of the Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World, but the cost per night is dramatically lower than other resorts' Grand VIllas.

Old Key West is the original Disney Vacation Club resort and the low point charts are a relic of Disney's initial entry into the timeshare industry.  At this stage, Disney has very little flexibility to alter those point charts, making Old Key West's Grand Villas perhaps the greatest bargain in the entire program.

There are only 27 Grand Villas available at Old Key West, making them very difficult for non-owners to book 7 months prior to arrival.

Old Key West is really big and I don't have a car. Is there another way to get around?

Old Key West has its own form of internal bus transportation for those who may be unable or unwilling to walk from one location to another.

Those wishing to get from their guest room to the Hospitality House can board any theme park bus at the nearest bus stop.  The final stop for all departing busses is the Hospitality House

For example, a guest staying in the South Point area of Old Key West should be able to board any theme park bus at the South Point bus depot and exit the bus when it arrives at the Hospitality House.  (Note that it would be wise to confirm the route with the driver before boarding any given bus as it is not unheard of for a driver to take the stops out of order.)

To return to a villa from the Hospitality House area, take the internal bus.

The answer to this is--it depends.

Guests without access to a car may want to request a room near the Hospitality House. This is a confirmed booking category.

Guests who wish to walk to Downtown Disney or Saratoga Springs should ask for South Point, specifically near the South Point pool. The walkway to Downtown Disney and Saratoga Springs is right past building 55. The Turtle Pond pool area has a video arcade and a snack bar (the snack bar is open seasonally).

Building 35 on Old Turtle Pond Road has some great water views. Old Turtle Pond Road also has tennis courts.

Guests who wish to be on the main road should ask for Peninsular Road, which is generally the first bus stop at Old Key West.

Those with a car should try to avoid building 20 on Miller's Road and building 55 on South Point Road. Parking at both of these buildings is limited.

The Community Hall offers a variety of board games, table games (ping pong, foosball) and video games. It is staffed by Disney Cast Members, but should not be considered day care centers. Parents are responsible for supervising young children.
