Hello all was wondering which buildings are your favorites and why? Have only stayed once here in a studio but loved it so much.

Grand Villa Buildings - Favorite #15 for View and proximity to the main pool, Olivia's Etc. # 43-42? Can't remember which one has the GV's for the quiet pool and grill!

2Br - Buildings 45 & 46 if it's just us, nice water views! Building 42/43 - Near the (not so ) quiet pool and grill, if we have all the boys with us! I like to grill and have cocktails by the pool while they horse around!

We have only stayed once but were lucky enough to get building 45 (a request after doing my research and asking here). We loved it. Sooo quiet and a wonderful view of the canal. It is also close enough to a quiet pool that we didn't feel like it was a major trek.

I am not sure I would do that area again if we didn't have our own car (we are not fans of disney buses) - but for us it was perfect.

You are going to get a large response from everyone because we all have our favorites...

We love the 41/42/43 group because we love Turtle Pond pool and the area is nice and quiet. We also don't mind the 5 or so minute walk to the main pool area. We have really enjoyed 37/36/33/32 for the view of the golf course....and also not a bad little walk to turtle pond or the HH. Also enjoyed 45 for the nice view of the river and the people going by.

Really, really, really disliked #29. We were in a bottom floor studio and our view was of the air conditioners and the noise from the street was the worst!! And of course that was the time it was just to 2 of us on a short romantic weekend!!!

We have stayed in pretty much all of the buildings, but those were our favorites.

Have fun

Cheryl

We'll see what he thinks this December, since he is likely having knee replacement before our December trip. If you are worried about it, I would request ground floor so you wont have stairs.

There is no need to carry your own luggage if you don't want to do so. Bell services can take care of that for you. The boat to DTD is a wonderful way to get there. We sometimes just take it for the boat ride even though we aren't planning to do anything in DT!
Diane, I had my second knee replacement at the end of October last year and by the first of December I was walking with a cane and sometimes no cane. I was back to work by about Dec 10.

Question Hairdryers in OKW rooms

Hi all
This is my first post on this thread - hope someone can advise. Do the rooms have proper hairdryers or are they the wall mounted ones that don't really have any power ? Have only stayed in POFQ before and they had the wall mounted ones. I might bring my own travel dryer if OKW is the same, but trying to avoid the extra weight in the baggage.
Thanks

When we were there in 2011, they had the wall mounted ones. I always bring my own because of them.

Boat Rentals?

DH and I will be staying at OKW Jan 2013. On allears i saw pics of pedal boats and some other thing they looked sort of like a jet ski that you sit IN rather than ON. What are they and what do they cost to rent. Im thinking they would be a fun afternoon event weather permitting of course

Thank you - looks like I'll have to go crawling under teenage DSs bed to find the travel dryer then - fabulous !

He just got back from the doctor, and they want to replace his hip first. That makes sense I guess, so I'm hoping we have enough time to do both hip and one knee before our November trip.
