Not sure if you would be planning to eat at T-Rex at Downtown Disney, but if so and you find that there are not many time slots available through the Disney ADT site, contact the restaurant direct through their website - they will e-mail you back and confirm a time for you.

We also have a son with Autism and always stay at OKW Ė he loves it and itís a very relaxed resort

We have stayed there 7 times (I think!) and love it Ė itís a little removed from the hustle and bustle but (apart from MK) is pretty close to everything.
One tip though - Ask for a room near the hospitality house Ė itís a big resort so itís nice to be close to the main building.

Any other questions please feel free to PM me

We belong to DVC and OKW is our home resort. We have stayed at all the rest and OKW is by far the most laid back and tranquil resort. The beach club is nice but it is a long walk to your car. In OKW the car is parked out side your unit.

I would have gone down to reception in my robe and slippers
I can't decide if it's sweet or sinister

We stayed at OKW with three daughters, 12, 8 and 4. The list of ADR's are in my trip report (link in signature). Our favourites were: Chef Mickey and 'Ohana. I wouldn't bother with Olivia's again and I wasn't that impressed by the Rainforest Cafe. For girly girls Akershus is great for meeting the princesses. We also enjoyed character breakfasts. The best quick service was probably Wolfgang Puck - amazing value.

Happy planning!

We loved Old Key West, the distance to the parks were fine for us, they took about 10 mins to get to each, maybe a couple of minutes longer to Magic Kingdom. Downtown Disney is really close for lots of dining and shopping options and Crossroads is nearby too for offsite dining. The foodcourt at OKW is basic without any indoor seating but there is also Olivias for reasonably priced table service, which never seemed too busy.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
