Ok, then that brings me to my next question. I would prefer HH area and am wondering if anyone knows which buildings are two stories? The boyfriend has knee problems but is pushing me to try get a top floor room so he doesn't have to hear anyone above him. I would give up quiet for his ability to walk around the parks easier, but it's his first trip and I've been before (but not to OKW, which is why I'm clueless), so I'm trying to make it as much about him as I can.

Here's what Doc wrote up a few years ago.
building configurations 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 will be designated smoking areas available outdoors.

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)

1st Floor- S,1,2,2,2,1,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.

Help with room request!

We are booked in a 1B, HH and I've just now found out that all those buildings only have access to the bathroom via the master. As a family of 5...with 2 teens...not ideal!

So if my choices are limited to buildings 30-64 (and knowing I need to change booking category to do that), what should I request?

Ideally I really wanted a high floor and marina view and close to main pool. This is a resort only stay, no parks. We will be going to DTD via boat and then other resorts via either Epcot or MK so bus access is nice but not a big deal to walk either. Could care less about a golf course view but would like something pretty to see out of the balcony as we love our balcony time! We will not have a car.

Buildings 62, 63 and 64 are probably the best for you. They are physically near HH, but aren't part of that booking category. They do have the extra door to the master bath through the laundry room.

This is an amazing amount of information! So, if I'm reading this correctly, and I want the top floor of a two story building, near the HH, I would ask for buildings 11 or 12... do I have that right? Thanks for this!

Awesome. We leave RI on the 3rd and will be at OKW on the 4th by around noonish. We are there until Wed the 8th and then head over to Vero. So we will have to meet up at the pool for a drink or two!!!

Only buildings 62, 63 & 64 have elevators. If stairs are a problem for you then you should probably request a 1st floor unit.

Deb, you are too much! We really like OKW, its become like a second home, love the size of the rooms, the peacefulness(its a lot like VWL in that regard) and the pts to stay a lot more reasonable than all other DVCs at WDW.

That elevator deal really spoiled me for sure. Love top floor rooms, but stairs work on my knees, what to do, what to do??

Those stairs are killers at the end of the day. We had a 2 bedroom, third floor two kids under 5 angpd a huge stroller...but it was so great 1330. We would get off at Pennisula road and walk back...smile
