Have you ever been to Disney’s Old Key West Resort?
Of all the resorts on Disney World property, it’s probably the one with the most amount of chill. Everything about this underrated resort has a laid-back island vibe, even the food. If you’re staying at Old Key West, here are the foods you need to eat!
The quick service location at Old Key West is Good’s Food To Go, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. But don’t skip out on this spot just because it’s quick service. You’re going to want to make sure to order the Loaded Nachos, which are made with House-made Fried Chips topped with Barbecued Pulled Pork, Cheese Sauce, Salsa, and Sour Cream.
However, you’ll want a cool dessert after nachos, and when it’s available, the Key Lime Soft Serve at Good’s is a MUST. It tends to be seasonal, but if you see it, you have to try it.
If you do happen to get those nachos at the Gurgling Suitcase instead, be sure to order a drink to go along with it! We recommend the Key West Freeze, which is made with SVEDKA Vodka and Bols Melon Liqueur blended with flavors of Coconut, Pineapple, and Strawberry.
If you’re looking for something without alcohol, though, don’t worry — there are plenty of other delicious beverages including a delicious Pomegranate Lemonade and a Sparkling No-Jito.
There’s more food you need to try here, too, though. The Shrimp Fritters are the same ones that come from Olivia’s Cafe (which we’ll get to in a bit). They’re served with Key-Lime Mustard. Trust us — they’re DELICIOUS.
If seafood isn’t your thing, try the Deep-fried Pickle Chips served with a house-made ranch dressing.
Olivia’s Cafe is almost like a secret Disney World restaurant because not a lot of guests seem to know about it unless they’re staying at Old Key West. EVERYONE swears by the Southernmost Buttermilk Chicken here, which is fried chicken with Mashed Potatoes, Southern Gravy, Biscuit, and Seasonal Vegetables. Everything about that plate will have you licking your lips and asking for more.
Our team also really loves the Onion Soup — so always ask if that’s the Soup of the Day!
You’ll need to finish up your meal with dessert, and there are two here that really stand out. The Key Lime Tart is a take on the classic Key Lime Pie and is served with Mango and Raspberry Sauce.
The Tropical Chocolate Tart may seem a bit weird at first because it’s a plant-based dessert made with an Avocado-Chocolate Ganache — the avocado just makes it that much creamier. But it’s an absolute winner. It’s garnished with a Toasted Coconut Crumble and served with a Mango-Lime Sorbet.
If you happen to pop into Olivia’s Cafe for breakfast (the most important meal of the day), we’re big fans of Olivia’s Famous Grits and the Breakfast Potatoes (which come as a side with many of the breakfast entrees).
