Old Key West Resort's Gurgling Suitcase Bar
This week's stop on our tour of Disney Bars and Lounges is The Gurgling Suitcase at Disney Vacation Club's Old Key West Resort. This sunny spot to grab a drink is located in the "Conch Flats Village" main square located just off the main lobby. What a great location it is too, right near check in, the restaurants, self parking, the feature pool and the marina.
Gurgling Suitcase is a full service bar with both indoor and outdoor seating open from 11:30 am - 12:00am. The interior decor is covered with an eclectic collection of donated license plates, patches, and DVC Member family photos. Though that style of decor can often become dark and cluttered, the suitcase remains bright and cheerful. The front door of this bar are left open to welcome guests home, and invite them in for a drink. Amazingly the AC keeps the interior magically cool, and comfortable within it's walls.
While there's no food served here, when at the Gurgling Suitcase you'll find yourself just steps away from both Olivia's Cafe and Good's Food To Go. One of the most wonderful things about this bar is that not only does it carry the standard Disney Bar Menus, but there's a fine selection of specialty cocktails that you won't find anywhere else on property. Hand written on a sign proclaiming "Welcome Home" there are just a few of the specialties you may find.
- Sultry Seahorse: Disaronno amaretto, creme de banana, pineapple juice, orange juice and a float of cherry brandy.
- Turtle Krawl: Coconut rum, spiced rum and white rum with pineapple, orange and key lime juices.
- Woo Woo: Vodka, Peach Schnapps & Cranberry
- Bocce Ball: Disaronno amaretto & OJ
