I've always wondered why Disney doesn't update their website after rooms are remodeled. Some of the footage used in the DVD's is really old too!

Old Key West

I just stayed at Old Key West for the first time since 2008 and NEW BEDSPREADS!!! They're much nicer than the dated looking pink ones, but not as nice as the soft comforters at Bay Lake Towers. But prettier actually.



this is Studio villa 5524 in building 55 at the end of South Point Road.

In case you haven't seen, WL has done away w/their previously hideous bedspreads.

Let's hope Disney keeps going in this direction.

Here's my pic from July.

Lovely! But was there some kind of a runner? It looks a little unfinished otherwise.

Yes, there is a runner. It's pretty and kind of matches the new carpet. I discarded it though.

How doth thou THEME a room? Let me count the ways. 1. Bedspread 2. The bead spread on the other bed 3. The bedspread they put back on boffo dem beds the next day.

Whip doses off! Put on that big fleece blanket widda SAINTS logo on it an use the theme thang for under your doe ta keeps the hall NOISE out.

I always never do that.

It looks cleaner and more deluxe. Doesn't look like a cheap bedspread..although...it could use one of those scarf throws that they put over the end of the beds in other deluxe resorts like Aulani and on the cruise ship. That definitely could be well themed.

They did have those, but I had tossed it on the floor.

OH!! Did you happen to get a picture of it? Was it Wilderness themed? Probably would make a difference. Saratoga could use a bedspread upgrade. Not that I don't like it...but my mom had a similar one decades ago...so its a bit dated. They still had this one in November of 2012.



Here is the spread that they have in the master bedroom on the king bed. This is actually the one similar to the one my mom had. Not the other one, which is on the queen beds.

I really dislike the trend to go with all white bed covers. Looks blah to me, as if you could be at any resort anywhere. Part of the fun of the Disney resorts is that they are themed. Not sure why taking that out of the room is considered to be upgrading the room.
