    At Old Key West are the Pickleball courts all set up with painted lines on the courts and nets or do I have to bring my own net?

    Welcome there, Traci! Thanks so much for bouncing on over to planDisney with your vacation planning question. I'm happy to help with your question so you can plan accordingly for maximum recreation on your upcoming Disney adventure.

    I must admit that I haven't yet tried pickleball yet, but I do know that this popular sport made its way to Walt Disney World Resort starting in 2023. Several resorts, including Disney's Old Key West Resort (also known as the original Disney Vacation Club resort), now offer pickleball for Guests

    At Old Key West specifically, there are three courts for use--two near the main pool and one on Turtle Pond Road. These are first-come, first-served, although occasionally they may be booked in advance for lessons or events. You can bring your own equipment (no net needed!), or if space in your luggage is at a premium you can check out gear from Conch Flats Community Hall or Hank's Rent N'Return. Equipment rentals are currently free for DVC Members, although I recommend checking the Member Benefits section of the Member website before your June arrival to make sure this perk still applies. 

    Traci, if you want to venture out to visit some of the other pickleball premises around Walt Disney World, these are open to Guests of any on-property Resort Hotel with a MagicBand or valid Resort ID. You can enjoy a friendly match at the following locations: 
    I hope this information is just what you need for your planning purposes so you don't find yourself in a "pickle" on your upcoming vacation. Thanks again for visiting planDisney, and please stop back anytime if we can help add a little extra pixie dust to your next visit Home!

    Stay Magical!
