I am soooooo excited for our first stay at Old Key West. I have some questions.


Is there daily pin trading in the lobby like there is at the regular Disney resorts?


I know I will find the answer to this once I make it through this longgg thread, but so I can know quickly...can you tell me about refillable mugs at OKW like where you refill them, etc. I am thinking if we have a far out location we won't bother...

You refill your mugs at Goods to Go on the backside of the hospitality house, right next to the bar and the main pool. Ive not seen pin trading in the lobby, doesnt mean it isnt there though. We usually stay near the canal and the walk isnt far at all.

Refillable mugs don't work so well at OKW. It's much easier to just fill up your refrigerator with beverages of your choice.

Thanks in advance!
Wireless is free at OKW.

Guest services at any park can log you in and print boarding passes if your airline does not participate in the airline check in.

BCV they can walk over to EPCOT or the Studios....Depends on how they spend their time...any resort is a treat...
Thanks Pirate Granny for your input, we have stayed at the yacht club before but never got to use the pool area as it was to cold, this trip will be in August so im sure we would be spending some time at the pools at least in the evenings. I have thought about the bcv can you tell me does a 2 bedroom have 2 queen beds or is it 1 bed and a sofa? just figured it would be a hassle to have to open up a sofa each night, is there a television in the 2nd bedroom?Im really having a hard time trying to deciede all I know is that a 2 bedroom is the number 1 must have on my list and it is narrowed down to bcv and okw , any input onto which 2 teens would prefer a boy 16 and girl 15 ? Im kinda rethinking and wonder if the bcv is the one to choose. Thanks for your help

The second bedroom whether it is a lockoff or dedicated (and that also means the studio) will have two queen beds in it at OKW. Always.

But BCV, more than likely, you will have a queen bed and a double sleeper sofa in the second bedroom because only 25 dedicated two bedroom villas have two queen beds and you must request that type.

I can't wait for our next trip to OKW! I bought DVC in 2009 thinking I'd be staying at our home resort of BLT each time I go to Disney - but then last year fell in LOVE with OKW! My niece was totally opposed to DVC resorts because she hated the "hotel feel" of BLT - she prefers POP to anything else....until our trip to OKW last year - she is now totally converted! I gave her and her sister the choice of any DVC resort for our upcoming trip prior to our cruise and they chose OKW for the great pool, fantastic rooms, and amazing atmosphere! Can't wait to get back to our unofficial home at WDW!

Early some one mentioned that re-fill mugs do not work well at OKW. I disagree. Been buying mugs for years. We usually have been their about 4 to 5 weeks in a year spring/fall. It opens up at 7am and can get drinks till 10pm. Never had any issues. We would do our morning workouts and get coffee and get what ever doing the day. Walk down if were home for a late coffee and visit with other guest. We have a fine collection of mugs from the years and pick up new ones each visit. Enjoy
