    Old Key West Qs

    Okay OKW veterans....
    What's the bus service like? Is there both a boat and a bus to DTD from OKW? Do they now share with SSR?

    This trip isn't deifinite yet. I just wanted to get my room while I still could!

    FYI...
    I just booked a studio at OKW for late May/early June. I've never stayed at OKW before. We are very, very attached to our home resort of the Boardwalk. We have never stayed at another DVC resort, always Boardwalk. However, a studio for the Boardwalk was not available nor was the Beach Club or the Wilderness Lodge. I realize OKW has larger rooms, not really a priority for me.

    Missing the Boardwalk already and I'm not even sure this trip will happen!

    My first trip "Home" to OKW is scheduled for the end of June through early July.

    I have a friend who stayed at OKW in Dec. She had a one bedroom place, very nice. You could see the boats going to DTD from her balcony. They had their car so I don't know if they used the buses at all I will find out for you. They are staying at Boardwalk in June. they bought into Saratoga springs last year. Congrats MB on your recent purchase

    Thanks!!

    We will fly and be using the busses also.

    In our experience at other Disney resorts the busses are very good. I hope that is the case in June. This will be our first summertime trip.

    I stayed at OKW last Oct. It was a nice resort. There is bus service and boat service to DTD. You will have a great time here!! Used busses to all parks and no problems at all.

    Have a great time!!

    When are you going?? I just called MS for an add-on to my trip at VWL and there was availibility for studios. . . .

    Sounds good so far. We'll be bussing it from OKW, provided we are still going.

    We don't plan on renting a car. The price of a rental car for a week would be equal to 2-3 nice dinners for us. Hmmm...2-3 more nice dinner or our own car? Hmmm....I'll take the food!!
