« back to Table Service
We are probably going to stay at OKW. I have 2 food questions. Will Olivia's allow us to do carryout to enjoy back in our villa? And which do you prefer in MK- take a cooler around with you or leave the cooler in a locker? Too inconvenient?

Hi Kim! This is a great question with a weird answer. We stay at Disney's Old Key West almost every year. We eat at Olivia's at least once, usually our first night in, than I go grocery shopping and we do dinner in the villa.
Last year, I had made spaghetti with a meat sauce for dinner. I am a pesce-vegetarian and forgot to make something for myself(yes, Mommies think of everybody but themselves!). So I thought, I will just go to Olivia's and get a take-out meal while the sauce is simmering. Plus, that would give me a good excuse to go to the gift shop and spend money without my husband seeing:) I get to the hostess station and explain that I wanted take out. The cast member says that they don't do take out. So sounding like Jack Nicholson in "Five Easy Pieces", I said, than I would like a table please. When the cast member waiter came over, I said, "I would like no drink, no dessert and no appetizer. I would like the tilapia, but not in a plate, but in a to go box and quickly."
I told them that I would be shopping in the gift shop next door and to come get me when it was ready. They did, I paid and left. I'm hoping that they changed this silly bureaucracy and now allow take out. If not, print out the instructions above!
I prefer to carry a small, soft cooler with me. If I'm at one end of the Magic Kingdom, I don't like to trek all the way back to the park entrance where the lockers are to get my snacks!
