Brunch at Olivia's Café (Dinsey's Old Key West Resort)

On my last day of my Florida vacation, we decided to explore another Disney World Resort. These resort hotels usually have a unique theme and it feels like you step into another world... We ended up at Olivia's Café at Disney's Old Key West Resort. Neither of us had been at that resort before and were most pleasantly surprised by the beautiful hotel with all the little details and by the charming little café. While the hotel reflected the atmosphere of a tropical island and Key West, the café was nautical themed. There were also over a hundred member photos in the lobby of the café. The café also had a cute little outdoor seating terrace. And as most visitors chose to be seated inside it was also not so noisy.

Great service!

Another posivtive, our waiter was very attentive and welcomed us with the note, that he will try to accomodate any changes or additions to the menu that we like. We (especially me) indeed took his word for it and I added a few extras, and the best - he did not charge us for it! Such a great service just hightens the good experience. 

Great food!

We chose "Olivia's Breakfast" and I added green peppers and pico de gallo to the eggs. Additionally, we picked the Mickey shaped waffles and some pancakes. As part of "Olivia's Breakfast" we got the potato casserole. This was my favorite as it tasted similar to a dish that Mom cooks, she calls it "onion potatos". In the potato casserole, there were also sautéed onions that tasted very buttery and just enhanced the flavor of the potatoes.

Great additional boat ride!

What a great start into my last day. However, it did not end there. My friend discovered that there was a free boat ride from the Resort to Disney Springs, which was amazing, as we looked for both: a boat tour and getting to Disney Springs. The boat ride was really amazing, through a nice canal with great views and the guide even added some history to it.

Another Disney Resort Experience to end the day:

After returning from Disney Springs to the Resort, we decided for another quick stop - dinner at the nearby Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. This was a spontaneous idea and we were, again, not disappointed. The area was beautiful, really bringing out the character of New Orleans's French Quarter with its cobblestone streets, the gas lamps and the Mardi Gras decorations. The dining hall style food at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory was really tasty as well. Unfortunately, we were too stuffed to try out the uniquely Mickey-shaped beignets ;) If there is a next time, I think I would like to try the adjacent Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside with its creole and cajun specialties.

Previous Disney Resort Hotel experiences:

  • Disney's Polynesian Resort: Last year, we had enjoyed the tropical style and beach atmosphere at the Polynesian Resort. We watched the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom nightshow. Afterwards we went to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, a tini Tiki Bar kind of hidden away but very lively and animated. 
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge: In this African-style Resort we enjoyed Boma's Brunch as well as Boma's Dinner buffet. There was even a walk with spectacluar views over four savannahs and African wildlife. 
  • Disney's Art of Animation Resort: Here, you are surrounded by the enchantment of Walt Disney and the Disney Pixar Movies. There are several storybook landscapes to explore, including Finding Nemo, Cars, Lion King, The Little Mermaid. We also enjoyed breakfast at the Landscape of Flavors and participated in a "teach to draw" class where we learned how to sketch little simba from the Lion King.
  • Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort: This year, we started my vacation time off with the Chip 'n' Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long. We had a real campfire, a character meeting with Chip and Dale, made our own s'mores and watched a complimentary "under the stars" Disney movie (The Incredibles) - and the best, it was free!
  • Disney's Grand Floridian Resort: I also enjoyed the Disney Afternoon Tea experience at this Victorian-style Resort and the elegant Garden View Tea Room with life pianon music and a surprise appearance of Cinderella and Prince Charming.
