    We will be staying at OKW Deluxe Villas from Oct. 2-8, 2016, our friends are DVC members and gifted the week to us. Will we be able to use the DVC Water Taxi to Disney Springs? The reservation is in my name, but they are also on the list, if that matters..

    Hi Elaine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to hear that you have an upcoming vacation to one of my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts! You have fantastic friends. I hope you are ready for that moment when you stroll through the door of your spacious Villa and realize that this beautiful, huge "home" is all yours. Also, you absolutely must plan to enjoy a meal at Olivia's Cafe, a highlight for our family.

    All Walt Disney World Resort Guests, including day Guests, are welcome to use the convenient and complimentary transportation options offered around the property. While it certainly does sound exclusive, the DVC Water Taxi is just the name given to the boats that allow Guests of Disney's Old Key West Resort and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, both Disney Vacation Club Resorts, to sail the Sassagoula River to check out the exciting shopping, dining, and entertainment at Disney Springs. So climb aboard and enjoy!

    Check out the attached video for some tips to help you explore Disney Springs from my friend and fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist, Nancy!

    Come back and visit us if you have any additional questions, Elaine. We love to help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
