I believe by turtle creek pool the smoking area may be over by the picnic tables and grills...at least someone was smoking a stogie there when I was there...noticed 'cause it reminds me of my dad.

No option for Turtle Pond w/online checkin?

So I am within our 10-day window for checking into OKW and went online to do the online check-in. I had seen the screenshot of the request options a few pages back in this thread, but when I got to that screen for my own reservation, there was no option for "Request Near Turtle Pond". It seemed you could request near hospitality house, near Miller's Road, near South Point, near transportation, ground floor, or pack n' play, but no Turtle Pond. Anyone know why that might be?

I'm surprised they have Hospitality House area as a request because it is a booking category, not a request. I think it is still screwed up.

Plus every villa already has a Pack and Play. Why bother with that request?

They put you near HH area, ie they had me booked into building 27 after checking the box. I did not stay in the room as it was not ready at noon and our flight left at 2:30 AM and we need to clean up so we took a room on Millers Rd. that was ready.

So weird that it wasn't available when I did online check-in. And I read through the options several times AND had DH check just in case I somehow missed it. Oh well. You know what? We'll be at OKW in two days and I don't really care WHERE we are located--I'm just thrilled we're going to be there!!

Hello all! My family and I are staying at OKW for the first time this July I've heard great things about this place and can't wait to check it out! Does anyone know if Standard Studios have connecting doors? We'll be renting two studios (crossing our finger's they're next to each other) and hope that they do. Thanks!

Best place to request for wedding stay

So I am trying to figure out where I should request. Member services has tagged our rooms as wanting to be near each other as we are going down for my disney wedding. I am trying to figure out where the best place to request is. I will be getting ready for the wedding here as will the boys. I don;t want to have to walk down stairs in my wedding dress. Also my grandparents will be staying in a room as well and I am concerned about the stairs for them although that is not as big of an issue. This is the first time they will ever be at disney and I want them to have a pleasant time and be in a good area of the resort. Do you have any suggestions for check in what I should request?

Teresa

The newer buildings with the elevators would be good than you don't have to worry about the steps and it's not far from the HH.

Studios never connect to other studios. At OKW all studios connect to one bedrooms to make a two bedroom lockoff. Studios are usually at the ends of the building. So if you are on the same floor, you might be at opposite ends of the building. Or they might put you one above the other. There are a few of the larger buildings that do have studios intermixed with the other villas, but mostly they are at the ends of the buildings.

At OKW there isn't a standard studio. They are all deluxe studios. Just a new name Disney came up with. The only difference with classification is Near Hospitality House and Not Near Hospitality House.

Also there are very few buildings with elevators. Those are usually reserved for guests with medical needs. So if you don't want to walk down the stairs in your wedding dress, you need to request a first floor villa.
