We are taking another couple to OKW Easter week. Both studio rooms need to be on ground level (knee problems). I realize that ground level units sometimes have views that are not as good. No kids going, so we would like a quiet area near a small pool. We've stayed at OKW but it's not our home resort, so I know little about the unit locations and nothing about which units have already been refurbished. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ask for accomadations near the Southpoint quiet pool - we were in a 1bdrm in bldg 53 took 30seconds to walk to bus stop and 1minute to walk to the quiet pool.

Thanks for the tip! We want our friends to have a really nice visit. They've not been to WDW for a VERY long time. Also, thanks for the links!! (I should have done a search -- got lazy).

We stayed in building 17, ground floor, non smoking building. It was very close to the Miller Road bus stop, and a 2minute walk to the quiet pool next to Building 19. Either 17 or 19 would be a nice spot.

We were in #56 last July, in the ground floor studio at the far end of the building. It was PERFECT. It is on a cul de sac, so no noisy buses come by the building, and it was practically on top of the quiet pool. We have requested this peaceful area again.

It is great to have a number of options. When I called OKW they said to call 48 hours before arrival to make a request. Has anyone done it this way? Does it help your odds?
