    We are planning a December 2017 stay at the Old Key West Resort. We are not DVC members but took advantage of the Dining Package Special Offer and upgraded to the Deluxe. Will we have a different experience than we did staying at the Port Orleans Riverside

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! You are going to be staying at one of my favorite resorts. I love the peace and tranquility at Disney's Old Key West Resort. The laid-back Florida Keys feeling makes this a great place to have as a home base for a Walt Disney World vacation.

    Although I am not sure of the special offer to which you are referring, having a Deluxe Dining Plan will allow you the opportunity to explore many great Walt Disney World restaurants! I recommend that you take the opportunity to try Olivia's Cafe at Disney's Old Key West Resort. I find this to be a hidden gem among Disney dining, with delicious Florida-inspired fare.

    Even though you are not a Disney Vacation Club member, you will have the Disney experience at Disney's Old Key West Resort that you had at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. You will still have the benefits of a Walt Disney World resort hotel, from transportation around Walt Disney World, to access to Extra Magic Hours, to complimentary MagicBands, to access to Disney's Magical Express, and so much more!

    Have a great time planning your magical vacation Frank, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
