    We will be staying in the Old Key West resort with 10 people, 4 children under 9 years old. We wondered if there are restaurants other than those in the resort that would be easy to get to and fairly quick and also what you think about those in the resort

    Hello, Kathy!

    We LOVE Disney's Old Key West Resort!  The landscaping is so lush, the pool and slide are fantastic and both the quick-service and table-service dining locations are wonderful as well!  You're going to love your stay!

    Regarding the restaurants on property at your resort, you'll find reasonably-priced, yet very tasty options at Good's Food To Go, which is located right near the pool area.  Olivia's Cafe, however, Old Key West's table-service restaurant, has some absolutely delicious, more substantial meal offerings, and it's set in a pleasant, yet family-friendly environment as well.  When we stay there, a dinner or breakfast at Olivia's is a must.

    Because you are staying at Disney's Old Key West Resort, you have the added convenience of being just a quick water-launch ride to Downtown Disney, where you'll find even more dining options for your party of ten. Of course, you can get there by resort bus as well, but there's something really special about the gentle, pleasant boat ride to Downtown Disney.  Check out your dining options at Downtown Disney for more information; you'll be thrilled to be so close to so many options! 

    While it's hard to pick a favorite restaurant at DD, because they're all so good, if you're looking for quick, you can't beat Wolfgang Puck's Express (not to be confused with Wolfgang Puck Cafe, which is fabulous, but isn't a quick-service restaurant.)  Earl of Sandwich is another great quick-service location, as is Fresh A-Peel. At an unofficial website,, you can look at menu offerings and prices, at least at the last time of update.  While these items and prices are not guaranteed, since this is a fan site, it will give you an idea of your options.

    Enjoy your stay and feel free to send more questions as you think of them!
