dvczerfs & dmoore22, thanks for the words of wisdom!

We will be flying so decorations will be limited but spirit aplenty! And we've spent enough Decembers in Florida to know the weather can be anything from sunburn lethal to citrus killing. Just to be out of the midwest and in the land of the Mouse will be a treat.

Looking forward to sharing your love of OKW during the holidays!

OKW is quickly becoming one of our favorites. I was quite sad when there wasn't availability for our upcoming trip.

I took a quick trip in May to test out my new camera. Since that was the purpose, I took quite a few pictures of OKW. It was suggested to me to share them over here, so here I am.













We had a 1 br

Great photos! Unfortunately, seeing good interior pictures of the refurb makes me realize what it is I don't like about it. What about that master bedroom says Victorian Key West????? It looks like generic 2000's hotel room to me.

Even though I miss the special paint treatment on the bathroom wall, at least that still looks like the theme.

When I see that version of the sleeper sofa, I can see why my son doesn't care for it. Just no substance to that mattress.

As I was the one who slept on the sleeper sofa (figure that one out...my points, but somehow my sister got the bed ) I will concur with your son. The sleeper sofas are very hard and flat, and would not be my first choice.

That being said, on my last non-Disney vacation, I also was relegated to the sofa sleeper, and that one folded up on me So, all things being relative that one wasn't so bad!

Great photos....I love walking around first thing in the morning, before others are up and snapping "quiet" shots. Everything is so serene!!!

OT here, but I just spent a couple of hours cracking up at your TRs -- great fun! I especially loved your time with Grandma on your honeymoon and your DHs commentary of the train tour.

Fortunately for us nostalgic folks Disney has not updated their online slideshows of OKW. Here's another link to the past

Click "Rooms" at the bottom of the picture and enjoy.

getting excited

10 more days till our trip to OKW.. and our first WDW. Love lurking checking out all the photos... makes me even more excited.. Even my honey is getting very excited... kinda humorous seeing a 53 y/old man giddy with excitement..

My dd wants to be applying for the CP Spring advantage 2012 (college program) if things work out she can get her application in while we are there... fingers crossed..
It would be so magical if while we are there she gets the application in.. gets her Phone interview.. and... when we get back home she finds her packet of acceptance...

COUNT DOWN...

Those types of views at OKW are always my favorites. I love the ones looking toward the lighthouse in daytime too with the palm tree lined canal.
