As long as they know what it means, I'm fine with it. This is our 4th time exchanging into a DVC villa with RCI. Loved BCV, VWL, and SSR. I'm sure OKW will be great.

I love the flavor of OKW. It is such a relaxing resort.
We are SSR owners, but had good luck acquiring an OKW GV during the week you are going. I think we may have had to go on the waitlist, but it come through. Good luck!

Does that mean we have been assigned building 14?

We have exchanged in the past and have also rented through Dis DVC members (awesome experiences!) but I don't remember having an assigned unit.
"14" should be the code for a 1 bedroom unit and "S" refers to the check in day

Staying on ground level

Hey folks
We will be at OKW in a few weeks and most times we get a 2nd floor, last trip we got a 3rd floor, thats a stretch with all that luggage, stuff, etc.
Does it tend to be noisy on ground floor?

We love the top floor...even after a long day at the park and carrying strollers and two tired kiddos up those stairs...relatively no noise...and the views and quiet on the balcony can't be beat!

It depends upon the upper floor occupants. For many years Mom & I requested ground floor because she had some mobility issues. Most of the time we never heard the people above us, but there were exceptions, especially if they had several kids.

As DS is now 20 I'm hoping he'll return the favour of years ago & carry a tired Mom up the stairs!!!

*SIGH* Well folks, I am coming over here to see about some help. We are adding travelers to our vacation in November and I have to give up my coveted BCV reservation. Looking to stay at OKW and need to know the best buildings and what not! I'm not as upset as my fiance. He doesn't do busses (gets car sick) so will have to drive everywhere. What can I tell him to give him a little ray of sunshine??

The best place in WDW to just relax and get away from the mobs in the theme parks. The porches are wonderful. Large and a good place to sit and watch the golfer or whatever else you see out there. Large, large rooms. Full sized washer and dryer instead of stackables. Love seat and a sleeper sofa and the sleeper chair in the one bedroom and larger living rooms.

We've stayed on South Point, Millers Road and Turtle Pond and enjoyed every place.

A word of caution..not sure when in November you're going, but OKW is not available on November 7th. We are on the waiting list but as of now, we are having to jump over to SSR for a night. Not sure if this effects your trael plans or not, but wanted to give you a heads up!

We are owners there and really have not had a "bad" location ever (since '99). Currently we prefer HH but then we never have a car so enjoy the proximity to Olivia's, etc. The rooms are huge compared to the other resorts and, of course, the boat to Downtown Disney is a big plus for us. Really the bus service is very good and OKW is very close to Epcot & Hollywood Studios so travel time is minimal. Even to MK & AK takes no more than 15-20 min. I am sure there are others that can give you more location info. Oh, you could always park at Epcot and take monorail to MK and use the International Gateway and take the boat to HS. This gives you access to 3 of the 4 parks. This is assuming you have park hoppers or APs. Have a great time!

Halloween at OKW

We're excited, got 2 - 2 bedrooms at OKW 10/30-11/6.

Can't wait till they announce Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party dates.

I've been watching Southwest for airfares from BWI To MCO.
