I sooo hope I can get in at 7 months. Our home is SSR and we'd like to do a split stay in November. I think I'm going to fall in love with OKW. I can't wait.

We are DVC owners at SSR - but we are going to be staying at OKW in August for the first time! We are going on the DCL first and then spending 4 days at WDW.

I just went through all 11 pages - and I am very excited about OKW!

Is there a particular building/area to request or is the resort pretty accessible by foot? (We will not have a car.)

eporter66 - noticed we are neighbors at DVC but also in true geographic location - myself and family live in Saratoga Springs, NY also!

That is so cool that both you and eporter66 live in SS NY. Does it feel like home when you are in SSR?

Count me in as an OKW lover!!! We just had our 1st trip there (New Year '08) I LOVED everything about OKW. What a beautiful place!!! A great big THANK YOU goes out to all you OKW owners for sharing your lovely home resort.

I just saw this thread for the first time today and I enjoyed reading all 11 pages of it! I'm happy to hear all the good stuff about OKW. I am going to try and book a 1 bdrm for the first week of December, we chose this resort because the 1 bdrm is huge and we will need the space with the 3 kids (1 under the age of three). I was lucky enough to get a BW view studio at BWV this summer for our first trip home and now I'm afraid nothing will live up to it. Hopefully I'll fall in love with OKW because I loved POR soooo much, my fave resort before we became members. Keep up the praise and pics, I love to look at the pics!

While we were on the tour last summer - we were asked quite a few times does this remind you of home? We paused before we said no not really! The overall "feel" is turn of the century victorian Saratoga Springs - but it is not what Saratoga Springs feels like today. I would image the days of high society, racing horses, casinos and victorian days was what the theme of the resort was built around...but today's Saratoga is still quaint but has Eddie Bauer, Starbuck's, Border's etc. mixed in with the great selection of speciality boutiques. As for the resort - the names of areas/buildings etc. are true places in Saratoga, but the design of things is not the same. The historical homes are not painted soft pink, blues and greens, High Rock Spring is not a bubbling spring of water - but a fountain (water fountain to drink from) area where you can fill water bottle etc. of the spring water. The pool area at the Grandstand is right on with the red and white colors, the bar area looks almost exactly the same as the grandstand areas at the track! The Carriage House is what I imagine the hotels of days ago looking like - rich with tradition. We loved the horse/jockey statue outside the Carriage House - there are statues similiar to that on Broadway (the main street).

It was fun walking around looking at things to find the Saratoga icons. We found it funny to see prints in the rooms that we have in our own house! Our son was like - hey that is the picture we have in the living room!

Overall it is reminiscent of "old" Saratoga - a time we never got to see! It is a beautiful resort!

Depending on when in November, you should be able to get something, even if you have to waitlist. DH and I always visit WDW in November. We always have to wait until the 7 month window because we own at BWV (you can see by my sig we have never stayed there).

If you are anything at all like us, you will definitely LOVE OKW. When I go to Florida, I want to feel like I am in Florida. OKW definitely has the Florida/Caribbean feel.

Enjoy your trip!

So glad to have found this thread. I just booked a 2 bedroom unit for august. I have wanted to stay at OKW for 7 years. We got 40% off so I can finally go. There are 7 of us going. My husband thinks we should save $$$ and book 2 rooms at a mod.

What does everyone else think???

I am thinking abt a graduation cake at the pool....or something. Boys dont get into the celebrate mood.... but my DD's do My mom and possibly Bil and family as well....right now we have a 2 bdr and 2 studios by HH...

We were going to do June 1-7, but we already have a snow day to make up, so I am glad I changed last minute...wasnt crazy abt flying home on Fri the 13th... , however the 73 pts for Fri was even more !!!

We will also be celebrating (low key) our DD's 2nd b-day and our 5 yr wedding anniv (same day)....
So looking forward to OKW

Any special ideas you have for your DD? I havent told my DD11 abt the new Hanna Montana thing at the Boutique...yet...but your DD is probably too old for that?

You dont get a porch or balcony at mods.....7 years? Go for it with the 40% discount And you will have a kitchen..(saving $$ on food)..have washer/dryer, less packing...the 2 bdr's are huge!
Tell him you will be saving money...just in a different way! The vacation will be more relaxing!
