If all my users are using SSH keys, and I’ve disabled password authentication, and disabled root login, can I still login as root from the droplet console?

In this case, you would need to log in via the web console available in your DigitalOcean Cloud account area for that droplet. The DigitalOcean console is always available for you to use.
