You will love it. Be sure to ask for a building 30 or above so you will have the extra door to the master bath that makes it more private for those guests using the living room. Don't forget that OKW now has both a queen pull out sofa AND a twin sized pull out chair that is very comfy (but uglier than mud).

One thing about that extra door. If its your first time at OKW( for us it was) you may find yourself circling around that bathroom! Seriously we were like going in , out , around trying to figure out which way we came in and how to get out!

Your joking, right???? It's a lot better than being able to get a beer out of the fridge without moving from your chair in the tiny BWV units. Just had to channnel him one more time. Richyams, that is.

New DVC owner already in love with OKW without ever staying there! Our first DVC stay is over Thanksgiving and is a split stay between SSR and OKW. We are in a studio at OKW and we don't have the "near hospitality house" reservation. Which building do you recommend we request? We don't want street noise, prefer close to bus stop, and enjoy water views. Any recommendations for our studio? Thank you!

Studios are tricky since they are on the ends of most buildings. If your main request is near a bus stop, then that should be your request instead of a specific building. They will have a better chance of filling your request if they know why you made a specific request.

My request is always top floor...didn't like the one studio they offered...first floor right next to the road and bus stop...actually patio faced both...got moved to 37.. We prefer golf course view. If you want canal view, not sure about the views as there is a Lot of vegetation from what I can tell from the boat ride to DTD.

The studios in buildings 45 and 46 will still have good canal views even if they are on the first floor.

Nope not joking! After a day or so we figured out which door gets you back into the living room!

We had this same experience! We stayed in a one-bedroom for two nights and by the end of our stay, I finally remembered which way to turn when coming out of the bathroom.

Hi everyone. Joining this thread. A friend of my DH's had DVC Points he was not going to use so rented them to us really cheap (we got a 2 Bedroom and a studio for a total of $250 a night..) My family of 4 is in the 2 Bedroom and SIL and kids are in a studio (that's what they wanted). Both rooms are booked as "near HH". We like to be by everything and is easier to give the kids a bit more freedom to go off on their own. It will be DS14 and DD will turn 12 while we are there.

We are going 1st week of June. I see we will get buildings 11-14 or 23-26. Do these all have the same type of views? Trying to see if one building would be better than the others.

Am I correct that there are 3 placed to refill mugs? Is there a place by the pool?

Our first choice was Beach Club as I love the walk to Epcot and boat to DHS. So, was a bit disappointed we didn't get that but after reading this thread I think this resort is going to be awesome too. I like the tropical feel.

Now to wait til the June Calendar comes out to figure out our days and ADR's. Will be following this thread for good tips...

Sad day at OKW

Yesterday OKW lost a lot of Pixie Dust. Ed Bouhadi is no longer at OKW. He will be missed more than anyone can imagine. He personally spread more pixie dust and made every day special. He will be missed!!!!!!

I agree! Any idea what happened? All I heard was he "was no longer with the company" which surprised me very much. He was an advocate for members.

Ed was terminated by management this past Monday. Fifteen members met with management on Tuesday to express our anger and loss. I urge everyone to write to management at Disney and OKW. Perhaps if they hear from enough members they will listen to the will of the members.
