I've been watching Southwest for airfares from BWI To MCO.
My family will be there at the same time!!! We're going 10/31-11/09. If you want to, look for me on the November 2013 thread.

We can't wait to stay at OKW.....the views, the space, the porch. And we do have mobility issues, but I would love, love, love to stay on an upper floor.

What can I tell him to give him a little ray of sunshine??
I guess it depends on weather or not you'll be using the resort amenities much? if so, then book the HH area... or try for buildings 62,63,64,15 or 16. The villas really do feel MASSIVE... Not just roomy. The resort also lets you step outside of the Disney chaos... And let's you relax and recharge the batteries. Having a car makes it especially nice... Since you can drive right up to your villa... Sweet! The only thing I will warn you about OKW... Try her once and she'll forever tempt you to cheat on your home resort.

How are the pools at OKW?

Are they nice? We like the pools at SSR but want to try a different resort next time.

Any photos would be great! Thanks

The two pools we prefer are the main pool (with the slide in the sand castle) and the quiet pool at Old Turtle Pond:

SSR has three themed pools and two (I always forget about the THV pool) unthemed pools. OKW has one themed pool with a big sandcastle slide (and a sauna in the lighthouse) and three unthemed pools (South Point, Turtle Pond and Millers Road).

If you have little kids, you won't have the water play areas like at SSR, but you will have a fun themed pool at the Hospitality House.

So excited, just got into OKW with an RCI exchange for 2bed 08/14-08/31.

Looking forward to staying onsite, so less commute and more relax and recharge time!

Mousekeeping needs to pay attention

Checked into a studio (building 46, very nice) but noted some lapses in Mousekeeping. There was no ice cube tray, only a single creamer for the coffee, and no bath mats. Called to have them brought over, but three hours later still nothing. Called back and they were finally delivered sometime later, at least another hour.

We're not given to complaining and fortunately this is not the norm at OKW. But it was disappointing in our home resort.

Online Check In

Hello

First time at OKW Can I take advantage of the online check in and put my room requests in at that point? I will be arriving early in the morning, is in person a better option?

Thanks again

I was just able to snag a 3 bedroom Grand Villa for our family reunion in November. I am a wee bit excited! The wait for the 7 month mark was nerve wracking.

I could not get the first night I wanted but I found a 2 bedroom at AKL that will work with someone, probably DH and I sleeping on the couch!

I hope we enjoy the grand villa. I hear they are incredible.

You'll love it! We have had as many as 12 in a GV, and in December we will have as few as 4. Our adult offspring are going with, and everyone wants their own bedroom.
