    I am staying at Old Key West September 2023 and I realize the rooms are spread out so much it can be a long walk from check-in. Will Bell Services take luggage to our rooms? Is there a shuttle? Same question for when we leave.

    Hiya Tracy, 

    Welcome back to planDisney. If you ask me, it is never too early to start planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so I love that you are already looking ahead to next fall. Disney's Old Key West Resort is a beautiful resort with a laidback feel that will remind you of a getaway weekend in the Florida Keys. The resort is gorgeous and features a number of amenities that includes an arcade, fitness center, community center, 4 swimming pools and the scrumptious home style cooking of Olivia's Cafe.

    You are correct, this is a sprawling resort with plenty of outdoor space and the distance between the various villas and the main lobby (called Hospitality House) can be quite the hike. Hakuna Matata! No need to worry about the size of the resort as there is an internal shuttle available. 
    There are five bus stops within the resort. If you are looking to head to one of the theme parks, you simply need to walk to your closest bus stop and grab the next Resort Transportation bus to your desired theme park. If you are looking to use the internal shuttle, you will need to head to the Hospitality House first as the internal shuttle only departs from that location. You can use any of the theme park buses to reach the Hospitality House, as each bus will stop there last before they head towards a theme park. Depending on which area you are staying in, be sure to allow about 15-20 minutes to move throughout the resort to the various stops. Bonus tip - if you are headed to Disney Springs for a bite to eat or some light shopping, you can grab the water taxi from the Hospitality House launch over to Disney Springs

    As for your luggage, Bell Services will be happy to assist with your bags. If you arrive before your room is ready, Bell Services will be happy to store your bags and will deliver them directly to your room once it is ready. On your departure day, simply call down to Bell Services from your resort room phone and they will come assist with your bags. They will also be happy to store them if you are planning on staying to take another spin on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind before you head home. 

    I hope this information helps you find the perfect way to move around your resort. If I can help with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me
