Interesting to hear OKW has the nicest atmosphere - that could be useful as we fancy going out for pram walks some of the day to just enjoy the sunshine.

Old Key West will give you much more space and nicer rooms. The balcony is like another room with a full size table.

Really need some advice on an upcoming stay in May at WDW.

Am travelling with my wife and 7 month old baby, and think it would be helpful to be able to put the cot somewhere separate from our bedroom - therefore we are considering a 1 bedroom apartment at OKW (or SSR) or the cabins at Fort wilderness. They both cost the same amount for the week, and both include free dining. Any advice on which to go for given comparable cost? We are hiring a car.

Also considering PFQ which is a little cheaper, and would need to use the curtain to partition the cot. Any experience? I understand OKW better than SSR since renovations.

All advice gratefully received, thanks
Both OKW and SSR are great resorts, just FYI, SSR has been rehabbed since OKW has, in fact some areas are just now being finished. The grounds at both are lovely with beautiful walkways.

The one thing I like best at SSR over OKW is they have an indoor counter service restaurant and OKW doesn't.

At OKW, Goods to Go, is their quick service, it is carry out only with outdoor tables.

At SSR, Artist Palette is indoor, with really nice indoor seating.

Wow thanks for the pics - the SSR does look nice. FW Cabins seeming a distant third now. Just to choose between SSR and OKW........ Not fussed about theming as the baby won't mind, just want nice views from a warm balcony where we'll be hiding out while the baby sleeps.
