View Full Version : OKW Building Configuration Summary

01-17-2002, 09:48 PM
I spent a couple of hours last week doing a survey of the buildings at OKW. There are seven different configurations. I have assigned a letter designation to each type described below (these are my own observations and are NOT official.) All room rooms are numbered from right to left as you look at the building from the parking area. Each floor will be numbered by building number, floor and room. The studio on the lower right first floor of building 16 is #1610. The 1BR next door is #1611.

GV's are found in Buildings 15,16,19,22,25,29,43,48,49,51,53 and 63.
Buildings 62, 63 and 64 all have elevators but no other Buildings are accessible above the ground floor.
As of June 1, 2007 - all WDW resorts are smoke-free with no smoking allowed in rooms, balconies, and patios as well all public areas. There are designated smoking areas available outdoors. In Buildings 11-29, the 1BR and 2BR villas have one entrance to the master bathroom - thru the master bedroom. In Buildings 30-64, there is an additional access to the master bath thru the laundry room. The jacuzzi area is separate from the master bath which has the toilet, shower and sink.

Handicap Accessible Access (HCA) villas are located in Buildings 13, 20, 21, 23, 26, 27, 28, 34, 42, 48, 50 and 63. HCA GVs are found only in Buildings 48 (ground level access to the first floor of the villa) and 63 (elevator access to the first floor of the GV). No OKW GVs have elevator access to the second floor of the villa.

The "near" Hospitality House booking category includes Buildings 11-14 and 23-26 and may be reserved as a guaranteed location if available. All other locations, floors and views cannot be guaranteed, but requests may be made. Charcoal grills are availabe near each of the neighborhood pools (Miller's Road, Old Turtle Pond and South Point). There are no gas grills at the resort.

OKW has no Dedicated Studios or Dedicated 1Bedroom villas. There are 274 Dedicated 2Bedroom villas and 230 Lockoff 2Bedrooms (comprised of a Studio and connecting 1BR) and 27 3 bedroom Grand Villas for a total of 531 Units / 761 Max. Available Rooms.


All of the following building descriptions are listed from right to left, as you face the building from the parking area.

Ok, I am confused, I am looking at my OKW resort map and Building 55 looks as large as building 56 on the map, yet building 55 is a type B and 56 is a Type A

Building 54 looks much smaller on the map than 55, yet 54 is listed as a type A. From the map 54 and 44 appear the same size but one is a Type A and one is a Type B.

Are the numbers on my map incorrect?

WebmasterDoc
02-06-2002, 07:34 AM
The numbers are correct on the OKW map (http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/okwmap.jpg), but the building footprints are not drawn to scale.

On the map, the South Point pool appears to be located behind building 56. In reality it is between 55 and 56. The number of stories in each building is also not evident on the map. The map does provide a great general reference to find the general location of all the buildings, but does not provide any information about the room layout- which is why I surveyed the entire resort on foot.

I won't accept any responsibility for the map! :D

I had printed out and was referring to your post of January 12 which begins "After walking the entire resort this afternoon with pencil and paper"... It goes on to list TYPE A thru TYPE G. Bldg 38 is listed as a TYPE D and refers only to a first and second floor. Your link to your Jan 18 post lists it correctly as a 3 floor bldg. I've destroyed the old post and printed off the new post. Thanks. Your research is much appreciated.

I've just found a little error I'd like to pass along. Building 28 according to your report is listed as a GV non-smoking building. (Although it is also listed as a Type A building which does not show any GVs.) I called to request this building and it does not have a GV.

Doc, you are an excellent source for information so I'm going to assume that I've got something messed up here. According to the online Member Guidebook, OKW has only 531 vacation homes which include studios and 1Br-3Br configurations. Unless I'm misunderstanding your Type A through Type G unofficial configurations, yours totals 782 units. Almost 50% more units than listed by Disney. What am I missing? Thanks.

DebbieB
11-30-2002, 05:30 PM
I believe they officially count the studio/1bedroom lockoffs as one 2 bedroom, not 2 separate rooms.

WebmasterDoc
11-30-2002, 08:25 PM
DebbieB is correct. The "official" count is 531, but counts each lock-off 2BR as one.

The configuration summary I provided counts entry doorways- thus the larger total. Dedicated 2BRs have one doorway-- lock-off 2BRs have two.

Good question! Thanks for totalling up all of the rooms in the buildings!

Enjoy!

okay. i see that all 3-story buildings are only 2-stories high on the ends.
i was wondering how the room numbering works for those units on the 3rd floor. do they still start with zero for the first unit on the right? or do they use room#s that correspond to the similar unit 1 floor below them?

i'm going to use building# 27 as an example for my question.

what are the room#s for the 2-bdrm units on the 3rd floor?
would they be 2730, 2731, and 2732?
or would they be 2732, 2733, and 2734 because the 2-bdrms below them on the 2nd floor are room#s 2722, 2723, and 2724?

Doc, thanks for all the hard work you have put into this. Just wondering if you know where the 2 bedroom lock-off rooms are. We will be going in May and have no idea which building to request. Thanks again!!!

WebmasterDoc
03-06-2003, 01:06 PM
All 2BR lock-offs are comprised of a 1BR and adjacent Studio. All buildings are capable of having 2BR lock off villas.

As for the room numbers in 3 story buildings question- I'm not positive, but think they are also numbered beginning with XX10 on the right end as you face the building- but would suggest simply requesting a dedicated 2BR with a certain view on the upper floor instead of specific room numbers or even buildings. You really limit the resort's opportunity to meet your request if it's too specific.

The "Smoking Optional" buildings have not changed and are the same as what's listed in the report. I reverified that 2 weeks ago.

Enjoy!

I have updated an inaccuracy in this configuration listing.

Building 49 actually has three GV's instead of 2. It has the same building shape as #48 and includes a variation in it's layout.

#48 has a ground floor access GV in place of lock-off 2BR villas on the left end of the building. The 2nd floor has one lock-off 2BR and 3 GV's.

#49 has a lock-off 2BR on each end (no ground floor GV) and has a lock-off 2BR on each end of the 2nd floor- along with 3 GV's in between. (4922, 4923, 2924)

Shamus was kind enough to point out that my original configuration posting was 1 GV and 1 2BR short of the "official" number of villas according to DVC. This correction brings the number of GV's and 2BR's into conformance. Thanks to Shamus for pointing out the discrepancy!

Enjoy!

There really shouldn't be any remaining noticeable odor, it has been a nearly a year.

And please remember that smoking discussions (pros and cons) are not allowed on the DVC Boards.

The HH category is bldgs 11 to 14 and 23 to 26.

I spent a couple of hours last week doing a survey of the buildings at OKW. There are seven different configurations. I have assigned a letter designation to each type described below (these are my own observations and are NOT official.) All room rooms are numbered from right to left as you look at the building from the parking area. Each floor will be numbered by building number, floor and room. The studio on the lower right first floor of building 16 is #1610. The 1BR next door is #1611.

GV's are found in Buildings 15,16,19,22,25,29,43,48,49,51,53 and 63.
Buildings 62, 63 and 64 all have elevators but no other Buildings are accessible above the ground floor.
As of June 1, 2007 - all WDW resorts are smoke-free with no smoking allowed in rooms, balconies, and patios as well all public areas. There are designated smoking areas available outdoors. In Buildings 11-29, the 1BR and 2BR villas have one entrance to the master bathroom - thru the master bedroom. In Buildings 30-64, there is an additional access to the master bath thru the laundry room. The jacuzzi area is separate from the master bath which has the toilet, shower and sink.

All of the following descriptions are listed from right to left, as you face the building from the parking area.

Type A buildings are all 3 stories.
1st Floor- S,1,2,2,2,1,S
2nd Floor- S,1,2,2,2,1,S
3rd Floor- 2,2,2
Buildings 13,20,21,23,26,27,28,32,33,34,36,37,39,41,42,45,46 ,47,50,52,54,56 and 62 are all Type A.

Type B buildings are all 2 stories.
1st Floor- S,1,2,1,S
2nd Floor- S,1,2,1,S
Buildings 11,17,24,30,31,40,44 and 55 are all Type B.

Type C buildings are all 3 stories.
1st Floor- S,1,2,2,1,S
2nd Floor- S,1,GV,GV,1,S (#6322 is a HCA GV)
3rd Floor- GV, GV (upper floors)
Buildings 15,16 19,22,25,29,43,49,51,53 and 63 are all Type C.

Type D buildings are all 3 stories.
1st Floor- 2,1,S,S,1,1,S,S,1,2
2nd Floor- 2,1,S,S,1 1 S,S,1,2
3rd Floor- 1,S,S,1 1 S,S,1
Buildings 14,18,35 and 38 are all Type D.

Type E- #48 is a 3 story building.
1st Floor- S,1,2,2,2,GV (#4815 is a HCA GV)
2nd Floor- S,1,GV,GV,GV,GV(upper Floor)
3rd Floor- GV,GV,GV (upper floor of all)

Type E- #49 is a 3 story building.
1st Floor- S,1,2,2,2,1,S
2nd Floor- S,1,GV,GV,GV,1,S
3rd Floor- GV,GV,GV (upper floor of all)

Building 48 and 49 are the only Type E buildings and each has a variant configuration.

TypeF is a 3 story building.
1st Floor- S,1,2,2,1,S,1,S
2nd Floor- S,1,2,2,1,S,1,S
3rd Floor- S,1,2,2

To my knowledge, no one has compiled a similar report for VWL. There are some room reports about the various views at VWL around. When we stayed at VWL I didn't have enough time to create the same report.

Sorry! :(

There is an actual map of the rooms by floors around somewhere for VWL. I'll see if I can find it.

DVC news has posted these maps for VWL. I think they're a little better than the one's I've seen before.

So today I snagged a grand villa in the HH area of OKW. Am I correct that would have to be in building 25?On the map that looks like the only HH building that has GV.

Yes, Building 25 has the only GVs in the "Near HH" booking category. There are 2 GVs in that building and they have a golf course view. The building is very near the Peninsular Road bus stop - the first stop when returning from the parks.

The original DVC Sales Center - The Commodore House - was located where Building 62 now sits. When the sales center was moved to BWV, the Commodore House was torn down and Buildings 62, 63 and 64 were added and sales were reopened for those buildings (it sold out again in October, 1999). The original Miller's Road ran thru what is now Building 63 and the roadway was re-routed to include the area that was previously the parking lot for the sales center. IMO, Buildings 62-64, 15, 16 and 17 aer also "near HH" but are not included in the booking category. The original sales model villas were found in Building 16. There are GVs in Buildings 15, 16 and 63 in that area of the resort. 16 has nice views of an island green and surrounding pond and 15/63 also have a similar view of a different island green and different pond. 15 also has a nice wooded view.

Enjoy! :)

Does anyone know if there are any OKW maps that show where specific room numbers are located in each building? I have seen this for other resorts but can't seem to find this level of detail for OKW.
BTW, thanks Doc for all of the excellent information you provide in your posts.

Yes, if you look at the first paragraph of the original post, it describes how the rooms are numbered at OKW. (Building #, floor, villa). They are numbered right to left when looking at the building from the parking area. Since some buildings have a different configuration (number of floors, number of villas) there will be some variation. By comparing the description for each Building type and then using the OKW map you can easily figure out the room number for all OKW villas.

With 49 buildings and 8 different variations, it's tough to have a map with that much detail, but the information to create such a map is already in the first post.

I hope this helps.

Yes, this helps. It gets a little confusing with the buildings that are full two stories on the bottom and a partial three story on top. I went back and looked through old check-in documents and it appears they just start with room **10 on each floor regardless of what room number is below you.
Thanks again!

No, there are no 2 bedrooms that connect to any other size unit. The best you can hope for is to have the units in the same building, and even that will only be a request, not a guarantee.

Doc, first of all, thank you for this great thread:wizard:. It is a handy resource.:worship:

Question? We are wanting to put in a request for building 12. We need (2) 2BR's and we want them one above the other. Are the 2BR's in building 12 dedicated or lockoff? With our traveling party, we'd prefer lockoffs, but we will take dedicated if it means we have a chance at building 12.

From the map it looks like there are 6 Dedicated 2BR's in Bldg 12 and only a possible 2 lockoffs. Odds would be better with the Dedicated.

In the first post in this thread, all of the villas noted as "2" are dedicated 2BRs. All of those designated as "S" and "1" are combined as lock-off 2BRs. OKW has no dedicated 1BRs or Studios - all are lock-offs.

Yup. Was trying to help somebody else out that needed this info. Why? Does it bother you?

I just didn't see a need to bump a thread that hadn't been posted on in a year without adding something new. If you were trying to point a friend to it, you could have just sent him/her the link.
