Top Reasons to Stay at Saratoga Springs

Get ready to go tropical, Disney vacationers; today we’re exploring the soothing balance of comfort and luxury that only Disney can provide at Old Key West Resort. Nestled between Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course fairways and glistening waterways, this one-of-a-kind resort offers the kind of recreation and inspiration that Hemingway himself would admire.

#5 – Fitness Center at R.E.S.T. Beach

Old Key West Lighthouse

If a few hours trekking around the parks doesn’t fulfill your fitness fix, you’ll want to head to Old Key West’s state-of-the-art exercise center which is open 24 hours every day. Work up a sweat on treadmills, ellipticals, bicycles, and stair climbers or pump some iron with free weights and weight machines. Afterward, you can relax at the lighthouse which doubles as a sauna!

#4 – Swimming Pools

With 4 aquatic experiences to choose from, taking a dip in one of the Old Key West pools is a great way to cool off and have some fun when not at the parks. The main pool features a 125-foot waterslide and white sand beach, making it the preferred swimming hole for many families. The three additional leisure pools around the resort are ideal for lounging, tanning, and cooling off in a less lively environment. 

#3 – Fishing at Disney’s Old Key West

Aspiring anglers can enjoy guided fishing excursions with an experienced guide. All of the equipment necessary for a successful fishing trip is available for rent, so don’t worry about lugging your tackle box around.If you’re a Disney Vacation Club member you can get 10% off the cost of your fishing trip, so be sure to mention DVC when booking which can be done up to 180 days in advance. A good rule of thumb is to always ask about DVC member discounts whenever making a purchase; you never know where savings could be lurking!
