Hi, Does anyone have an activity schedule for June? Or even one from May? I'm interested to just see an example of what they do now. We haven't been to OKW in years. Thanks!

Good to know about the crowds but wondered about the buses - we didnt have an issue when we stayed there last - how long were you waiting?

We set off in less than 2 days but spending a few days at Universal first then 10 nights at OKW.

Why not 14? We have stayed there twice and both times on the back side facing the golf course. There was no issue with it. The only issue I have with that building is how difficult it can sometimes be to cross the street to get to the bus stop.

I'm afraid we'll get the unit facing the drive with all the buses. Love my balcony, and wouldn't be able to sit and enjoy the view....14 and golf course view would be perfect. Not sure, but I think my daughter asked for bldg in the 20's..ressie is for HH, with a request for top floor. Looking for the posting with the room locations. We have a dedicated 2 bedroom. First night at BLT TP view for a special treat (and lots of points, since it's a Saturday). I will take a bus over from MK around 10 on Sunday am to check in, and get our room assignment. Plan on spending pool time at BLT that day as we have ADR for CRT at 5:30. 11 more sleeps...ALMOST SINGLE DIGITS. DGDs think they are going to Kansas...surprise for them

There are far more units that do NOT face the entrance driveway. We did have a 1 bedroom on that side once on the second floor, but we never noticed bus noise. I wonder if it's because we were down in the back corner? Frankly, I've only heard the buses one stay in my many at OKW, and that was when we stayed one night in a studio in building 29 and we were right on the end next to the road. I've heard people complain about the bus turn arounds at buildings 21 and 51 also, and I've never had an issue in those buildings either. Maybe some people are just lighter sleepers than I am. Of course, we wouldn't hear the buses at all if they'd just fix those squeeky brakes! We always joke that it's a prerequisite for Disney buses to have squeeky brakes.

How about Building #17. I just requested this building, top floor. I am so hoping for a golf course view (that is quiet)

Whoo-Hoo!!!

I think in the best scenario, I would want any of the buildings from 23-26. I actually do not want to stay (if possible) in the 11-14 region. I just like having the Peninsular Road bus stop right there...

Regardless, there are only 10 more days 'till I get to tell my little girls we're not going to Kansas, but to Disney! They are going to freak out!

Hi,

Just wondering what the facilities are like for a 2&10yo?

We were looking at SSR but the sofa bed in the studio is probably not going to work for us wher as the OKW has the 2 beds and more space for a cot.

Also what buildings have a lift, we like to have upper floors so we can have the balcony doors open and not worry about a little one running off! Or are the patios on the ground floor enclosed?

Anything else you can say to convince me it's the best place for our family would be great.THANKS

Just thought I would add we usually stay POFQ so we ae used to outdoor entry. But not such a big resort.

We love OKW! I am not sure which buildings have elevators and I'm sure someone else will have that info but I can tell you that the 1st fl. patios are enclosed so your little one would be confined. Also, the OKW studios are the most spacious of all the DVC resorts. Have fun!

I have to say thank you thank you thank you to whomever it was that recommended buildings 45 and 46 to me. We have been home just over a week from our first stay at OKW. We got a one bedroom in building 45 - first floor. At first I was a little leery of the first floor, but when I thought about dragging all of our luggage up those stairs - I was glad to have it.

We had a HUGE patio and AMAZINGLY pretty view of the canal. We really really liked it.

While it hasn't come close to taking the place in our hearts that VWL (our home resort) has (die-hard Moosehead here) it is at the top of the list of our favorite DVC resorts.

OKW has 49 buildings and only 3 have an elevator: building numbers 62, 63 and 64. those 3 are typically reserved for medical issues, if i recall correctly.

Correct on the "new" building numbers.

For those with medical issues, these are not your only options. All the other buildings have accessible units and 1/3rd+ are ground floor.

You know that DVC resorts do not provide cots, right? You'll have to bring your own and the studio only sleeps four plus one under the age of three.
