VWL owner that is loving OKW

Hey folks

We just returned from a week at OKW. 2 nights in a studio, 5 in a 1 bed. Our 1st stay at OKW wasnt so magical has we had noise issues and such. But 2nd time was a charm! We were in TP area, loved the room size, esp. the 1 bed. Loved conv. to car. Loved peacefulness of OKW, felt so at ease form moment we walked in room.
Big thanks to dianeschlit for giving us heads up about layout of TP, SP 1 beds to those near HH.
Now a question...can I join your lovers thread? Promise, no OKW bashing coming from me, only love

Sure you can join the thread. BUT, do you like OKW better than VWL? Or is your heart still at VWL?

Deb, I appreciate you letting me in your group. I have to admit though, my heart will always be true to VWL, but with Ranger Stan no longer there, I have reason to branch out and try more DVC resorts. OKW I can say in all honesty ranks right up there at a very close 2nd and in a tie with BWV.

OKW reminds me so much of the peaceful tranquility that VWL provides. 2 totally diff. resorts, but having a very special draw that I feel I was blinded by as being an owner of another resort during the 1st stay. Great thing about that 1st stay, it inspired me to buy more pts.

You know, I always feel I should take the opportunity to thank those 1st OKW owners, you know who you are, the ones who had the foresight to take the plunge. You helped pave a path for many yrs. of happiness for lots of owners. Thank you!

Some owners I know dont like TP area as it is a bit far removed from HH area, plus buses take awhile to get there. But I prefer it. We drive around WDW a lot, so transportation not much issue. Being closer to HH would be nice, but I still really like TP area. And bldg. 38 is nice. I like the views of golf course from there.

I'm glad to learn of someone else who prefers the TP area. I'm more a fan of bldgs 30-33, but I'll stay in any of them rather than Miller's Road.

Just booked today for October and requested TP area because we were looking for quiet with a peaceful view. Got the idea from reading this thread. We are adult only and will have a car. Besides we like to walk and the resort plan looks like a nice place to go for a hike! We will be in a 1 bedroom.

We will be staying at OKW the first two weeks in May. I talked to the front desk there this am. The CM told me that all buildings have not been refurbished. Can anyone tell me which buildings have been refurbished and which ones are in the process of being refurbished? Thanks Much.

The walk to HH is a nice one. Love walking in the morning up and back from TP area.

This is crazy. We just returned from OKW (HH area, 2br) on Sat. 3/19. When we checked in at OKW the Bellman who delivered our luggage told us that the last villa was completed the week before. If they are not completely renovated I believe most of them are so your chances of getting a renovated one are high. Just a suggestion, I would nicely request a renovated villa when checking in and if you can check-in early that would increase your chances. Good luck!
