Disney's Old Key West Resort

I thought I'd start the blog off by sharing a few photos from my last trip to Walt Disney World.
My husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and my mom's birthday there this March.
We stayed at Disney's Old Key West resort and had an amazing time. I wish I was at the Gurgling Suitcase drinking a Turtle Krawl while chatting with my favorite Disney bartender Roberto right about now...

Disney's Old Key West resort is one of Disney's deluxe resorts. The resort features deluxe studios, one bedroom, and two bedroom villas, and 3 bedroom grand villas.  There are several pools (one with a great slide!), as well as a golf course, boating, arcade, tennis, community hall and more. This resort is the first resort in the Disney Vacation Club family. The theme is relaxing and definitely takes you to another place.
Even the trash cans were themed!

 The pond in the Turtle Pond section... I didn't see any actual turtles though.
 The Turtle Pond "quiet" pool.

The main pool. Sadly, I did not get to go down the slide but it sure looked like fun!

The weather was bad our last day there, but it didn't take away from the great view by the Hospitality House! There is a counter service food location a bar, and a restaurant all on the water. It was one of my favorite places to sit and enjoy a nice drink.

Olivia's is the Table Service restaurant at Old Key West Resort. They participate in the Dining Plan and accept the Tables in Wonderland card. We ate breakfast one day and then a quick snack before heading to the airport our last day there. Hubby had the banana bread french toast and I had the pancakes. DELICIOUS. The onion rings are amazing, and hubby really enjoyed what he got too, but I honestly can't remember it right now. I will have to ask him later. The Gurgling Suitcase (bar) also offers a full Olivia's menu and accepts the Tables In Wonderland card. We enjoyed an order of fries and conch fritters one sunny after noon. Went perfectly with my Turtle Krawl.

This is the lobby of the resort. Notice the balloon animals? This is where I got my fishy friend as seen in the photos in the beginning of this post. 

Ahh... look at this gingerbread architecture of the Conch Republic....  charming isn't it??

Well, that's it for now. I will be sharing photos of our Deluxe Studio room in an upcoming post.
