Disney’s Old Key West Resort may have a dining scene most known for its classic breakfast and fried chicken dinners at Olivia’s Cafe, but this holiday season, things are getting sweet! While exploring the Walt Disney World Resort hotels this holiday season, be sure to add Old Key West to your list. Being a little bit out of the way, it is not one of the most popular resorts Guests tend to visit if they are not staying there, but the theming is fun and these holiday specials are sure to convince you.

One of the most interesting new holiday offerings can be found at Good’s Food to Go from November 7-27, 2021, and that would be the Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake! It’s made with pumpkin cheesecake, bourbon panna cotta, and spiced pecans, and we simply have to try it.

Good’s Food to Go is also offering a dark and white chocolate peppermint bark a little bit later in the season. This one is only available December 1-January 1, and from what we’re seeing this just might be the only dark chocolate peppermint bark special at the resorts this year. The others seem to be made with milk chocolate, so keep that in mind if you have a preference.

And, a gingerbread cupcake will be available, and this one is sure to take care of any sweet cravings you may have during your Walt Disney World vacation as this one is a rich gingerbread cake with caramel mousse filling, and spiced buttercream. The cupcake is also available December 1-January 1.

More desserts can be found over at Olivia’s Cafe (so if you order the fried chicken, be sure to save some room!) These include a lighter pumpkin cheesecake with toasted meringue, cranberry compote, and cranberry macaron available special for November 27. And from December 24-January 1, Olivia’s is offering a Chocolate Peppermint Cake. This one is actually a chocolate lava cake, topped with peppermint snow, and raspberry sauce!
