We always stay on Disney property, so it's hard to avoid making comparisons between the resorts. Still, the experience always depends on what you are looking for; in our case, we wanted the most affordable Deluxe Disney resort during the Christmas season. Old Key West (OKW) was perfect for this purpose. Staff were very friendly and courteous. The arts and crafts were great fun for the kids in the Community Hall. Pool was also very nice. Specific pros and cons:
Pros: 1) Beautiful grounds, places to jog, 2) water taxi to Downtown Disney, 3) studio units have two beds instead of bed + sofa bed, more spacious and 4) again, most affordable Deluxe/Vacation Club property. We decided to stay an extra night.
Cons: 1) Gym adequate, nice equipment, but small compared to other properties, 2) No indoor quick service dining - problematic when weather is not cooperating. Limited options, nothing very healthy.
I would stay again, but would probably choose over other Disney properties if I were specifically looking to save money or Disney vacation points, or for the extra bed. Others in my family preferred Saratoga Springs. If you book, make sure you ask for ground floor room if anyone has problems with stairs, as most buildings do not have elevators. Also, we enjoyed walks and had nice weather, but ask about distance from the Hospitality Center if that is a concern for you. Bus stops are located throughout to Downtown Disney and theme parks.
