Add us to the OKW Lovers List!

My 2 DS, ages 9 and 11, and I just returned from 6 days at OKW in a 2 bedroom-yes, we had LOTS of room to spread out. My parents were planning to join us on this trip but at the last minute my dad's ongoing health issues forced them to cancel so we were "stuck" in a 2BR. We were in building 48 and really enjoyed the location as the walk to both the Turtle Pond pool and South Point pool was quick. Hopped on any bus to get to the HH-very easy. Just a couple of observations that some of you may comment on. Twice returning from the parks the busdriver deviated from the route and pulled into Miller's Road first and then the HH and then on to Peninsular Road and the other stops-not a big deal for us but just kind of odd. I just wonder if they again stopped at HH on their way back out?-if not and I was a guest who hopped on that bus to go to HH that would be unfortunate. Also, did I dream it or did we used to get lotion with our other toiletries? We found none and it's actually the one toiletry I missed. We received a half empty shampoo in the master and a more than half empty shower gel in the other bathroom. I bring my own shampoo so not a huge deal but just kind of felt stingy. Actually, it kind of grossed me out but I don't want to make a huge deal out of it...Stay was wonderful though and really enjoyed OKW.

Leaving for first stay at OKW tomorrow!

I am so happy this thread popped up today.....we booked a very last minute trip to Disney and only OKW and SSR were available. We picked OKW because it looked so pretty and now I am soooo glad we did. I am also really happy that availability was limited because otherwise we probably would have returned to Beach Club Villas which we really enjoyed. I think I will still miss being able to walk home from Epcot after dinner but it sure seems OKW has many other benefits! Can't wait!

Gotta love OKW!

I just stayed at OKW Nov 26-Dec 1 with 2 girlfriends. We had a great time and had plenty of space. No big problems, except a missing untensil or 2 and no extra towels for us. Otherwise, everything was terrific. Returning in Aug '08 with my DH,DD and DSIL. They are more excited than I am! If that's possible!

I'm so glad to hear these great comments. We bought at SSR but are staying in an OKW studio for a week in March and an OKW 2-bedroom for a week in June. For March, it is DH, DD22, DD19 and myself. For June, we add my mother, sister, niece & nephew. The more I hear and read, the happier I am with my decision to stay at OKW.

Sounds like an OKW add on is in your future! Good luck with the add on. OKW is a great resort. We may add on there someday.

To those that have asked "will I like it"....you will LOVE it!!! You won't want to leave!! It is so laid back and relaxing there!! Not sure if we will be there this spring or if we will be going to the Keys. If we go further south I know I will be going through Disney withdrawls!!

Cool, maybe we'll run into each other while we are there.

We also took a ride over there from Saratoga Springs last month to check it out. We really liked the look & feel.

Bought DVC in 1997 at OKW and would never change. We have stayed at BW and BC. Neither are as relaxing as OKW. We have no desire to stay anywhere else.
