    Going to WDW in Nov and staying at OKW, does the water transportation only go to DD? Also, are the buses to and from OKW still OKW specific or are they shared with ay other resort?

    Hi Ricardo!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family loved Disney’s Old Key West Resort. After a busy day in the theme parks, the quiet atmosphere of the resort and spacious rooms were just what I needed. 

    Boat transportation is available only to Downtown Disney. The Downtown Disney area is going through some exciting changes right now, with fabulous new dining locations such as The Boathouse, and new retail shops opening, the area is well on it’s way to becoming the newly named Disney Springs. We took this leisurely boat ride one day of our trip, and enjoyed both the convenience and the change of scenery from the usual buses.

    Disney’s Old Key West Resort does not share buses with another resort. There are 5 bus stops at the Resort, so while you will not need to visit any other resorts, the bus does make multiple stops within Disney’s Old Key West. If you are using Disney’s Magical Express to and from the airport, these buses usually do service multiple resort hotels. We found the transportation to be easy and convenient. Since at home I feel like I am a Disney bus driver driving my “Minnie” van all over town, I appreciate letting Disney do the driving while on vacation.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions, Ricardo. I love helping families plan their magical vacations!

    Happy Planning!
