    A hearty "welcome home" is an appropriate greeting as you enter Disney's Old Key West Resort. This "home away from home" resort is designed for relaxation with its quiet peaceful atmosphere

    Avoid the rooms in block 20, the busses all turn around outside your window and it's very noisy; also it's a long walk from the restaurant and there is very little parking if you drive.

    The best thing about this resort are the massive rooms and private pools. Stay here if you want to hang around the resort. Transportation is inconvenient and the magic really seems to be lacking.

    Beware the entry gate - there is only one lane, and some of the "security" guards have nasty, nasty attitudes. Be prepared to nod and smile while they yell at cars who didn't pull in exactly right.

    If taking a bus to the parks first thing in the morning, walk to the Peninsular Rd stop instead of the Hospitality House stop - you'll get on 1st and be able to sit. Buses are often full at last stop.
