I just found this thread buried way down... We just purchased OKW 2 months ago and can't wait til our first trip home in Oct 08!!! (Wish it was sooner)

Please everyone, please keep posting pictures and experiences (and pictures ) of OKW. It's so much fun to look and read through all the posts and it will keep me going til October when I can return the favor.

Thanks everyone

Kristi

lover

I bought OKW along with my sister in 2005, my sister loves BCV and stays there 2 out of 3 visits. Until now, her and friends are in a 2 bed room dedicated at OKW and can't get over the size. They like the size of the kitchen you feal more like you are home. They have eaten in more this trip then all the other trips at SSR & BCV. I TOLD HER, OKW not that far from anything and is more like home.

Do we love OKW???

We are leaving one week today for five weeks at OKW - guess that says it all!!!

When we first bought many years ago - we only bought enough points for one week - - well after the first week I just wasn't going to leave - so down to the Hospitality House (remember I said many years ago) and bought another week - same thing at the end of two weeks. And, that brings us to today and only seven more days here in the great white north and it will be five weeks of sunshine in our "home away from home"

Yes, we love OKW!!!

To all those who LOVE OKW:

I am staying at OKW for the first time in June with my family for a Grand Gathering. After looking at some of the pics, I am really excited about going! One of the reasons we chose OKW was the fact it had 2 beds in each studio--YEAH! But that also poses one small problem for my Dad. He had bypass surgery several years ago, and has a difficult time laying down in a bed. He actually sleeps much better sitting up in a chair or stretched out on a couch. Do you think it might be possible for them to get some type of comfortable chair moved into his room for his medical condition? I know I have seen pics of chairs and ottomans in the larger villas at OKW. What do you think? Please help out with info in any way possible! TIA

A 1-BR may be a better option as they are all equipped with the chair and ottoman which I have actually fallen asleep in several times and was quite comfortable.

How many of you in your grand gathering? It sounds like you are only staying in a studio, but if you go with a 1 or 2 bedroom, you will have a queen sized sofa bed, a love seat AND an easy chair and ottoman not to mention the king bed, Jacuzzi in the master bath and the full sized kitchen and laundry room as well as the big covered dining porch. There is no way to get anything like an easy chair or sofa moved into a studio for you at OKW. First of all, they don't have that service, and secondly, there would be nowhere to put it! With two queen beds, a table and chairs etc, there isn't room for a sofa or easy chair too. I suppose you could always rent a hospital bed for him if you wanted to go to that expense, but at that point, it seems to me a 1 or 2 bedroom would be cheaper.

Hi All!! Can I ask some ?'s about OKW? I finally convinced DH to buy me DVC, and I have decided on OKW. But first I need to make sure there is enough for DD8 to do.
1)Are the pools nice? Nice enough to spend a day by the pool?

2)I also have read that the rooms were "worn" looking, but I just dont expect that from Disney.

3)Do the studios have enough room for 3 people?

4)Is it the resort i want to continue to visit year after year?

So give me the good, the bad and the ugly

We were upgraded last summer to Saratoga Springs and LOVED it, but financially we can only afford a small resale now. I am so excited I cant wait!!!

Thanks!!
