We were in HH BLdg 14, was more than perfect! Last bus stop out and we would get off the first stop coming home, walk across the bridge thru the main bldg and HOME....what a great location...

Don't know the answer to that, when we lucked out with the villa in 46, we just drove to Walmart and picked up a couple of poles!

So one thing I'm looking forward to is the gurgling suitcase! I will be there so soon. I love watching college basketball at the suitcase

FYI traveling with kids ages 11 & 8.
Thanks!
We stayed in 2323, a dedicated 2 br on the 2nd floor. It was our first DVC experience on rented points, and we thought it was perfect. The peninsula rd bus stop was right in front of the bldg, and the wall to HH was less than 5 min. I'm a lite sleeper, and it seemed very quiet to me. I didn't notice the busses, but could hear the golf carts a bit in the early morning. Not enough to wake me up, I was awake and reading already.

I hope you guys can help me. I have been to WDW more times than I can count, but never to OKW. We booked through orbitz (also a first), and I was wondering if we get daily housekeeping. Also, we will be in a 1 BR, and I have requested Peninsular Rd close to transportation. Is this a mistake? I don't want lots of noise, and a nice view would be great.
Also, do all of the bathrooms in the 1 BR villas have separate openings from master and living room? I know I have asked a ton of questions...Disney OCD.
Thanks!

Since you are not staying on points you get daily housekeeping.

Peninsular Road near transportation could be noisy or it could be quiet. Peninsular Road is the long road that runs through the resort. This map may help.
Only buildings #30 and higher have the separate door to the bathroom through the laundry.

We were at OKW in Dec. and stayed in the Peninsular Rd. area and loved it. No noise at all and we weren't all that far from the bus stop. We had a view of the golf course. I hope you have a great time and will enjoy OKW as much as we do. Don't forget to use the boat to DTD -- one of the things we love most about staying there.

I don't believe you can get Bldg 23-26 as they are a special HH booking that cannot be cash bookings... You can request Peninsular Road, but it would only mean Bldg 27-28 or 29. I don't know if the Canal view of 45-46 are considered Pen road or South shore. You can request top floor, ground floor...and we always request (which is all it is, a request, no guarantee, even with a cash reservation), top floor, golf course view. ENJOY your visit.

Buildings 45 and 46 are considered South Point, but I would request canal view to get those buildings. They are our favorite OKW buildings.

Thanks so much for all of the input. I can't tell from the map where the boat to downtown Disney is located.

Are there any "groups" that meet up at the gurgling suitcase? when I have been there before I did notice a group of gentlemen for the most part that seemed to know each other and were enjoying their time drinking at the suitcase. This is purely speculation, but they didn't seem like they had traveled there together but more like they were old friends getting together again. I watched and listened to them a few times and found it charming. something I'm sure my father in law will want to partake in.
