Ideally we'd like the top floor of a 2 floor building, if that's possible, 3rd floor seems a little too far to walk .

One last query, do all the 1 beds have balcony access from the bedroom as well as the living area?

We've stayed onsite before at POR and loved it, we're really looking forward to OKW and the extra space.
There is access from the master bedroom and the living room to the porch. It's one porch and not multiple porches.

If I remember correctly pools close either at 10 PM or midnight, but if you are quiet and don't bother the guests around the pools, you can swim much later. Signs at the pools post the pool hours.

Speaking of porches, does a 2 BR have 2 separate porches? I thought it was just one, but then (somewhere along my research) I swear I saw a 2BR layout with 2 separate porches.

Not really something that matters all that much, just out of curiosity.

In other news...YAY tomorrow I can do my online check in! Last year I just checked in at the resort, but I figure I'll give the online check in a whirl this year. We booked in the HH category and I believe my only request is going to be 1st floor. One member of our party really wanted a 2nd floor, but I hate to be the family that wakes people up below us (I have a 4 year old dd, and for some reason she tends to sound like a herd of elephants when she walks room to room). 11 days til Mickey!!

Hi all,
One of my sons turns 18 at the end of July and we go to the magic and our first trip to OKW on the 4th August - Do you know if I can arrange anything special at OKW for him to celebrate just turning 18 please?

A 2 BR lock-off has two balconies. One for the studio, and one for the 1 BR. A dedicated 2 BR has only one balcony.

Looking at the sign right now, Pool and spa. Open 7 AM to 11 PM.

Thanks...is it out of the ordinary to request a dedicated 2BR? 2 balconies is not important to me at all, and I'm not sure why but I just have a feeling that I would prefer dedicated to lock off!

You should call and have it noted on the reservation and remind them when you check in. They will have balloons and a card, they asked who the persons favorite character was, Mickey, Minnie, etc...

No, a dedicated 2 bedroom also doesn't have an exit door to the front.

I wouldn't say it is out of the ordinary. Sometimes people want the second entrance or the kitchenette and would book a lock-off. Before online booking, MS would almost always give you a dedicated 2 BR unless you specifically asked for a lock-off, or they didn't have a dedicated available.

Oh ok thanks! I am not sure if there is a spot in online check in for me to indicate I would prefer a dedicated..if there is not, should I skip online check in? Or if I do online check in, is it still possible to amend my preferences in person when we get there? We arrive at MCO @ 10:25 am, so we will get to OKW fairly early in the day, so I don't anticipate our room necessarily being ready for us when we arrive..if that makes any difference.

It isn't a request. You either book a dedicated or a lock-off. It should be noted on your confirmation too.

At OKW, if you book a two bedroom, they usually give you a dedicated two bedroom villa, unless you specifically request a lockoff. Giving you a lockoff when you didn't request one, ties up a studio and a one bedroom.

You will automatically be booked in a dedicated when you book UNLESS there isn't one available. In that case you will be put in a lock off and they will note it on the reservation. You can see it on the website when you check your vacations on the member page.

This may have been posted, but I don't think there is a smoking area at the pool. You may have to go elsewhere to a smoking section.
