    Hi! Staying OKW...can I hire hair straighteners (flat irons)? Mine will only work half heat from UK and this will the most I'll be photographed all year lol!!! Can I get some from anywhere online if not for hire to be delivered to OKW? Suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi Kerri,

    You are so right!  Those Walt Disney World vacation photos will likely be treasured not only for the coming year, but potentially for generations to come.  You certainly don't want to get caught with frizzy hair in those photos, do you?

    Although hair dryers are available in the lovely rooms at Disney's Old Key West Resort, flat irons are not.  If I were you, Kerri, I would order a flat iron online at and have it delivered to Disney's Old Key West Resort with your name on it.  The address for the resort is as follows:

    1510 North Cove Road
    Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830

    Try to arrange delivery of your flat iron so that it arrives less than one week before your check-in date.  I spoke to a Cast Member at Disney's Old Key West Resort this morning and she said that the resort will be happy to hold your package for you for up to one week.

    Another alternative, of course, is to simply hire a taxi to take you to the local Walgreen's drug store on Apopka Vineland Road.  Then you can pick out the flat iron of your choice.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for magical, frizz-free days during your vacation.

    Thanks for a fun question!
