I found a large assortment of pictures on the web site Mouse Planet (Brian Bennett)

Papa's Den looks so warm and inviting. He speaks of a strong "nautical theme "
being present in the resort.

I thought the quiet pools would be alot smaller than they obviously are.

Just the photos this Canadian needs after digging out of a snow storm.

Dave --me too--- first trip as an adult was with Ex DH ,,,beautiful memories but now time to make new memories

Wow those pictures by corinnak are beautiful! I just love the place to bits. I love the fact that it can be at full occupancy and still seem empty and I love the natural beauty all around me. Apart from always granting myself a 1 bedroom in my favourite building, I can't think of anything I'd want to change

I have stayed at OKW, WVL and BCV and the one thing I noticed about OKW(after staying at the other places first) is because it is more a DVC resort rather than a combo resort, the vacationing people seem more friendly. I have had a nice conversation with a lady in the whirlpool and another with a fellow I ran into a couple different times. I like that the staff seems to be more in tune with saying "welcome home" silly I know but I like it. I like the matt they had in front of my door.
For your kids they will enjoy the community hall . I personally like OKW slide the best, it was smooth and just a pleasant ride.
I agree with others you hardly realize there are other folks living there, and that porch in the AM and watching the golfers and workers is just great while eating breakfast

However, I suggest to all non OKW folks, please buy at SSR or one of the other resorts..really you will enjoy it more and so will I

Thanks for the nice comments! WDW is a fun place to take pictures. That was about 7am in October right before the "Fall Back" part of Daylight Savings, so I didn't even have to get up at an incredibly early hour for those photos!

Here are a couple more. Yes, already posted on the DVC photo thread, but who can find them in there, right?

The backroads of OKW - doesn't it look like a sweet little town?




Papa's Den - My DS is a total sucker for those TV's they have set up in the lobbies.


One of my main regrets from that OKW trip is that I didn't take more photos. Live and Learn.

We love OKW- I really am not sure I would want to stay anywhere else. The rooms are nice & big and the area is so cozy. I love walking to the Hospitality Center and walking along the water. I really enjoy getting my cherry coke at the gurgling suitcase & sitting on the dock. We honeymooned there & one year got to watch Tiger Woods play past our porch as we had brunch. Love it, love it, loveit!

One of my employees is at WDW now, we booked her into a two bedroom at OKW. Not long after she got into her room this afternoon she called me to tell me how fabulous her whole family thought it is.

She has stayed at BC and SSR prior to this and could not get over how much bigger the rooms were at OKW. She said her daughter was having a blast playing on the balcony and how her older two were just enjoying lounging around. She said she was going to have to practically force them out of the room to go to dinner at Crystal Palace tonight.

Mel and Dave...both recently divorced and OKW lovers? Maybe the 2 of you need to rendevous at OKW and get to know eachother???

We have owned at OKW since April 2000 and have gone at least once a year. We have absolutely no desire to stay elsewhere. The quiet, charming feel is what brings us back year after year. It is not all hustle and bustle there. The rooms are spacious and large. CMs are always friendly even though we do miss Angelo at the bellhop desk! The Gurgling Suitcase is always a welcomed retreat.

I just think that this resort would be perfect even if I wanted to take a break from all the Theme park visits. Cancelled my tours scheduled for my first day
in WDW next Sunday and plan on making a visit--so if anyone sees a SWF
almost 5 feet tall,,dirty blonde hair ,green eyes , Aussie hat with Baloo hand painted on it strolling around your home just say Hi Mel.

Well, here's a pic from the balcony of a villa in Building #17.



It was lovely, though I figured out two things:

1. Greenskeepers get up and get busy awfully early in the morning!

2. When you have a villa next to a golf green that is almost surrounded by water, your little ones can pick up some very colorful vocabulary!


Still, a very picturesque vista for a lazy summer afternoon.

A week ago I was in shorts and flip flops.....in the morning I'll be facing negative windchill temps ! As for the things I love about OKW (too numerous to even list, but here goes) :
Walking to check-in :

Ahhh...those spacious balconies :



Those views :









The lighthouse....

Olivia's :









The ferry ride....

The "wall" :
