That would be a VERY leisurely pace! I've never had it take that long.

We are a family of ten and is OKW for us so we may be in one place or something else. Please tell us how to proceed and about what we should expect.

This is a GM GP with two daughter and their families. There are 3 couples but one couple either needs a king (Football player type)or he gets the queen. DS5 DD10 DD14 DD15. DS5 will do floor duty if needed. DD10 could sleep with Mom if King is not available for Mom and Dad. The two teenage girls are cousins and will sleep together.

Some help please and if possible a floor plan and some idea on costs. Are we crazy and best get three rooms as in the past?

Forgot to mention this is for June 2013. 2012 is already booked. Thanks

Get three separate rooms. It will be a lot easier. Big boy dad just needs to suck it up for the trip.

Beautiful shots. You are making me so excited about staying there. We are doing a 5 night cruise on the Magic before and I am not sure which one I am more excited about - the cruise or OKW!

Thanks deb & bill. We just thought a villa would be nice and a little up scale than POR has been when we all go. Thanks!

The big boy is 6'6" and wears a 6X T-shirt. More a problem for my daughter (6') if she does not have a king like at home.

We want something new in 2013 so CSR or CBR for 3 rooms. DD39 and family will do CSR in june so we will see.

My DW was the one interested in OKW. I was into AKV.

Thanks!!!

For 10 you will need to get a grand villa. No need to worry about beds or bed sizes that way. There will be 2 queens, 2 doubles, 1 king, 1 queen sleep sofa, and 1 twin sleeper chair. There will also be 4 bathrooms....a must with those teen girls!

dianeschlicht - thanks! That would do it. Perfect for 6 females. Where do I find cost and floor plan please.

I have two sisters living in Mn. Where is Lakeville?

PP: cost, look up Mousesavers. Depending on time of year, a discount might be available. But, those Grand Villas are sometimes hard to get. Call early and call often. From your previous posts I assume you're not DVC, but if you are, some floor plans can be found in older DVC planning books. Or check allears, they have great photos of all the rooms and sometimes floor plans.

We just got back from 1 night at POR and 5 nights at BLT. It was NOT relaxing. We are such OKW people. Now seeing those pics (thank you!!) just reminds me what we did wrong. We didn't stay at OKW!

and I'm doing BLT again this summer!!! DH's family wants to go there. Maybe we'll pool hop over to where we belong!

... and I won't take a pool chair, I promise!

HiHoOff We Go...we rented a GV at OKW March 2011. 7 adults 4 kids....loved it so much we bought a resale at OKW. Rented from a wonderful person...but it wasn't cheap! We also made sure to rent right at the 11 month mark to ensure we got it. Had to pay when reservation was confirmed. So if you want June, that's July of this year. Check the site to see how many points u will need for your stay. Good luck. This June We'll be at BLT for one night in a 2 bedroom, then move to OKW, HH area in 2 bedroom for a week. 4 adults, two children. Then just hubby and I at BCV for the three more days to recoup!
