We stayed at our new home this past January. Simply beautiful. We love OKW. Our 2BR villa was fabulous, still can't get over how large it is. My house doesn't have that much room. You will have a great time at OKW. We can't wait to go back.:goodvibes

Hey Kids - listen up - Old Key West is a BLAST - the rooms are bigger than at Wilderness Lodge so you can make a bigger mess! As a matter of fact, it's a larger resort than the Villas @ Wilderness Lodge which gives you more room to run wild and wreak havoc!

Besides, ANY resort at Disney is a GREAT resort - you're going to have a TERRIFIC time, you'll see! You're going to DISNEYWORLD and even staying at a DISNEY HOTEL - you're the LUCKIEST KIDS IN THE WORLD!

Now be good or I'll send the "scary clown" from the Boardwalk Villas after you!

Best wishes,

Boy, those OKW lovers and owners sure aren't jumping on this bandwagon. I know they are out there.....but they are such a mature, laid back group, apparently, that they aren't jumping to gush about how much they love the place.

Well, I'll say that I love Old Key West. It is so pretty there. Much as I and DH and our boys love our "homes", there is something about OKW that really calls to me personally.

My advice to you, bababear, is to change that "?" to a "!" in the thread title. Hopefully some of the Old Key Westies will join in. They also may not want to increase the hype on their resort cause they don't want to create a "run on the bank," so to speak.

Here are a couple of photos to get things rolling. :) Cause who can resist photos, I ask you!

These are the tiles in the women's changing room near the pool. A weird thing to photograph, I'll grant you. But I was in there alone, and these tiles are SO amazing. I wonder if they have the same tiles in the men's. :rolleyes1

Wow, I can't believe I don't have any pictures! Give me a "Sultry Seahorse" from the Gurgling Suitcase to sip while I sit on the deck by the pool. Or sitting on that huge porch outside our villa drinking morning coffee.
