OLD KEY WEST RESORT MAKEOVER

Jessica C. (NDI#21) (81 Posts)

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


From the updated rooms at Caribbean Beach that are Pirate and Nemo themed to the recent announcement of the brand new Animation resort, accommodations have been getting face lift all over the Walt Disney World resort.  From now until spring of 2011, it is Old Key West’s turn! This original Disney Vacation Club resort is turning 19 this December and has not gone through much in the way of updates since it opened.

These updates, which have already begun in a building on property, will focus on updating amenities within the resort rooms, including room décor.  New flat-panel TVs, which have been seen in several resorts throughout property, will be added to the rooms as well as granite countertops and for the one and two bedroom Villas, a sleeper chair will be added.  Some other changes to the rooms include new bedding and pillows, chairs, carpeting, drapes, lamps and some other furniture.

The updates will go from building to building and will be finished by Spring 2011.
