The lights on those decorated were not taken down. Someone on here suggested that if no other guest complained, there was no enforcement of the rule. We enjoyed our neighbors' lights, but I didn't take what I usually do because I have to obey the rules. It's a character flaw I have. I hope they continue to not enforce it.

Sleeper chair?

Hi everyone!

We love going to okw each year for our trips to wdw. Last June we were able to stay in a newly renovated 1 bedroom villa which included a sleeper chair as well as the usual sleeper sofa. We are thinking of bringing my mother along this year. We also have a 7 year old son. I am hoping to have the sleeper chair again so that my mother can have a bed to herself. (my son will do the sleeper chair). Can anyone tell me if the sleeper chair is pretty much standard in all of the 1 bedrooms by now? Am I going to have to request it? I dont want to end up getting stuck without it.

I'm reluctant to decorate if its been prohibited. With my luck I'd be the one in which they would decide to enforce this rule. We'll probably stick with our candles in the window and perhaps string lights on the inside around the windows and french doors.

All the OKW one bedroom villas have the sleeper chair.

Transportation to and from Disney's Old Key West Resort is complimentary for Resort hotel Guests.

While staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels, there's no need to rent a car, or deal with the hassle of driving and parking. Save time and the hassle of driving and parking with complimentary transportation. Destinations throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Theme Parks and Disney Water Parks, are accessible by bus and boats.

Complimentary transportation is available one hour prior to Disney Theme Park opening time up to one hour after Disney Theme Park closing time. Additionally, buses operate until 2:00 a.m. from the Downtown Disney Area. Certain areas of Walt Disney World Resort are also connected by well-lit, paved, low-grade walking paths.
