This time around being familar with the area will be a big plus.

But, you weren't delusional nor did you imagine it! You didn't have a window in building 14.

Thank you!! Thank you!! I am not delusional. . .at least not over this topic.

To me, it really did change the whole feel of the studio and creeped me out. I would not want to stay there, and I LOVE OKW.

Hello all,

We will be arriving in Disney this Saturday for an entire week. We are staying at OKW in a 2 bedroom. Never stayed there before, so I don't know what to expect. We usually stay at Coranado Springs, but this trip I wanted more room to spread out in. Can anyone tell me if the Internet in OKW is wired or wireless? I've read that they have renovated the resort and wasn't sure if they have wireless in the rooms. The reason I ask, is that one of my laptops needs to be wired. Any info would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Location Help Please.

Ok so I am aware that I will get all sorts of ideas on what is best at OKW. Here is our "ideal location" We stayed last year in building 56 studio ground floor right beside the South Point pool. This is where we would like to be again. Now given that last year was our first stay at OKW we really don't have anything else to compare it to.


We like to away from the business of the main pool and HH. Want to be as close to a quiet pool as possible. Would like to be away from the bus stops and bus noise (we drive so only MK buses for us) Have heard that certain buildings back onto main roads that have alot of early morning noise (traveling with teenagers) This trip is more of a relax, sleep in, hang by the pool kind of trip. Any other location from South Point area recommended?

Diane: I consider you an OKW expert so would love to hear your recommendations. If I remember you are a fan of buildings 45 and 46. What is the walk like to the quiet pool from these buildings?

Deb and Bill: I also take your recommendations on all things OKW seriously. Care to share your ideas?

Well, I am not Diane, Deb, or Bill but I am going to give you me 2 cents...

We have taken teens with us and I have found the best place to be in buildings 37, 36 (close to turtle pond pool which we have never found to be over crowded.), building 46 is nice with a view of the river, and we also enjoyed buildings 47 or 48. I think they all give you a good view, not too much noise, close to pools, and have some proximity to the bus stops.

We have been in building 29 and really disliked it...lots of noise and not a great view at all. We have also stayed in 64 and 63 and really did not care too much for them. One building we haven't stayed in is 25, which I would like to at some point....nice and cozy in the cul-de-sac.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Enjoy your trip.

Cheryl

Ahh you are another one who's OKW wisdom I was hoping to get. Couldn't remember the name but remember the kids in the bubbles and I believe a wedding renewal toast pictures. Thanks for giving your 2 cents. Will take all advise offered. Thanks for taking the time.

Never stayed in South Pointe area, but have stayed in 35, 36 and 37. All were quiet from what I remember and close to Turtle Pond Pool. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We also are fans of Bldg 45 and 46. We stayed in Bldg 55 on the ground floor in a one bedroom villa closest to the pool. It was very quiet because there was bamboo all around that end of the pool. We had a nice view of the Trumbo Canal. 45 and 46 have less growth around the building than 55 and nice views of the Trumbo Canal.

If you request a Trumbo Canal view, you might get any of these four buildings.

We were in building 56 and had originally asked for 55. How far is the walk from buildings 45 and 46 (will be lugging laundry) to the pool area as we stay in a studio.

My concern is that the buildings I asked for on my request (56, 55, and the two behind can't remember the numbers) are still listed as not refirbed. We don't need a refirbed room just wanted that location and are concerned they will be in process while we are down there.

We stayed in a studio in 46 last year for Star Wars Weekends. The interior was refurbished in that it had the granite tops, the dark wood head boards, and the new carpeting. Unlike the other studio refurb we stayed in it did not have the roman shades and the Ethernet hook up was still by the table. We are not fans of the roman shades. They're just not user friendly. As far as the walk to the pool area it wasn't bad at all. However we weren't carrying laundry.
