I posted earlier, but thought I'd do a follow-up. We were there last week, staying in a one bedroom. The first night we were in 3834....third floor, about as far from a bus stop as I think you can get! We moved the next day to 3011. Much nicer, much easier to get in and out of. I blame myself....during check in the CM said, "I see you're on a third floor, and I guess with the stroller you'll want to change to a first floor room?" Stupidly I answered, "naw, that'll be fine."....not considering 1) my 4months pregnant wife and 2) colapsing and hauling the stroller everytime we went somewhere! Oy...live and learn.

While we like OKW - it's charm, the relaxing atmostphere, etc...we are admittedly spoiled by recent stays at Boardwalk, Beach Club, and Bay Lake Tower - all of which offer a lot more to do, to eat, etc within easy walking distance. If we rented a car I think it'd be different (or our own personal golf cart to zoom around in, lol!).

Oh, and put us in the camp of not digging the new refurbs. While the hardwood-type floor is nice, it just didn't give it that "homey/cozy" feeling to me, anyway.

Thank goodness they don't allow golfcarts at OKW.Its bad enough with them when we visit FW with all the underage or drunk drivers zipping all over the place.

Just back from a trip that included two nights at OKW and two nights at BWV. Loved the huge spaces at OKW. We were in building 15 and it was very convenient. Fortunately it was just Val & I so not having the extra door into the bath through the laundry room wasn't a big issue.


At BWV we had a 5th floor room that was on the far end of the resort nearest the Swan. I can't for the life of me understand what Robert A. M. Stern was thinking when he designed that place with only one elevator bank. Talk about long walks....

Do all the OKW buildings have elevators? My Dad is traveling with us and he has RA which affects his feet and knees. He has been doing well, but if we can avoid unnecessary stairs that would be great.

No. Only three buildings have elevators. But all buildings do have ground floor units. You should call and have a request noted on your reservation for a ground floor (or elevator building) unit for medical reasons.

Just checked out of OKW after 4 nights in a studio in building 18 - 2nd floor.

Nice golf view through the trees across to the HH.

Close to Millers Rd bus stop but easily walkable to HH.

Studio was spacious if a little dark

Breakfast at Olivia's was really nice

Transportation was, on the whole, pretty good. Just one hiccough getting back from the Poly one night - took ages. Did enjoy the boat ride to DTD

Happily come back again

We're going back in july . Either a 1 or 2 bedroom depending how many of our adult"kids" are available. Now if only it was spring already i wouldn't be so impatient.

absolutely love OKW. It's a paradise within a paradise.
