    I’m looking to book a 2 bedroom villa at OKW through Disney. How can I guarantee preferred if I’m not DVC?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jonathan!

    Thanks for sending us your question about Disney's Old Key West Resort. It's one of my family's favorite places to stay in Walt Disney World, and we became Disney Vacation Club Members after our first vacation here. We were hooked once we experienced a one-bedroom villa's living space and amenities. Let's talk about reserving your two-bedroom villa!

    Disney Vacation Club Members can book a villa at Disney's Old Key West Resort, specifically "Near Hospitality House." Villas in this category are closest to the main lobby, restaurants, and feature pool. Some members always select this location, while others avoid it, preferring a quieter, more remote experience. Guests with non-Disney Vacation Club bookings through the Walt Disney World Travel Company cannot guarantee a Near Hospitality House location, and there is no option for a preferred room location.

    If you want to be near the main building and surrounding amenities, make this request over the phone or via online chat as soon as you reserve your villa. For the best chance of your wish coming true, do not make any requests other than location. Once you've spoken with a Cast Member who has noted the request on your reservation, when completing online check-in, do not make any room location requests, and do not check the box to prioritize having your room ready early. Please remember that requests are not guaranteed, but Cast Members will do their best to place you in a room that fits your needs.

    You can walk from even the most remote villas at Disney's Old Key West Resort to the Hospitality House in about ten to fifteen minutes. Alternatively, the Hospitality House is the final stop for buses headed to the theme parks, so if your room is located on South Point Road or Old Turtle Pond Road, board a bus headed to a theme park and hop off at the Hospitality House. If the bus is full, the driver might only stop at Hospitality House if you request it, so remember this if you're commuting just before the theme parks open when buses tend to be the most crowded.

    I hope this is helpful, Jonathan. Please don't hesitate to reach out again if there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make your upcoming vacation even more memorable. Thanks again for stopping by, and have a magical day!

    Wishing you a great, big, beautiful tomorrow,
