I thought near HH was a seperate booking category too and should be honoured, its not like a room request.

Checked in there last week and since the title is OKW lovers I won't post anything else!

Oh, we LOVE OKW too! I'm just disappointed. We used our entire year's points on this one special trip for our son, and planned our stay around being very close to the HH, since we got mugs. It's just not as convenient as it would have been. At least the Turtle Pond pool is close and we can refill there during the day.
We are excited to experience the quieter areas of OKW, and being close to the bus stop and using internal trans, I'm sure this trip will be great.

I was just confused about the booking category and wish she simply would have explained the situation, instead of asking if we booked HH and when we said yes, ( I'm sure she hoped we didn't) she never touched that issue again, she just found us a closer to bus stop location and acted like there wasn't different booking categories.

I don't want to appear to be complaining, I didn't press the issue with her, knowing it is what it is. I just curious is all, after reading past posts where I got the impression it was more of sure thing.

HHarea is a booking category that doesn't require additional points. But, if like Chuck said, there was a maintenance issue, they wouldn't have anything for you. It's a relatively small number of buildings. Plus if someone failed to check out, they don't jump all over the guest who doesn't check out and you lose. Sorry about that.

Yes, and that last part is just wrong on so many levels. At the very least, the check in person should have offered an immediate explanation instead of just randomly placing them in a different category without explanation. When people "self extend" there should be some REAL consequences to THAT person...not the innocent one who is checking in.

:-( it is sad that there was no welcome home. Wonder why there seems to be a lax behavior with this? Seems small but on of the things we love

I used them on my last trip and they were in good condition. However, in the past I have requested maintenance bring one to swap out, due to something missing. This was an easy process too. It's usually something I check out as soon as I get in the room as to avoid any delays with nap or bedtime.

I have NEVER stayed at OKW before (I'm a POFQ junkie!), but we are SO excited to stay there.

I have been reading this thread for months in hopes that a discount would allow us to book OKW and now we're going!

So excited!
What spring discount?

Haven't gotten a "Welcome home!" The past few visits. We thought it was because our original guide left and they assigned us one in CA. There were a few other issues with our guide so I called to inquire and they changed our guide to a more experienced one. Still haven't gotten the welcomes we are used to. Been members since 94 and just added more points on our last cruise (contract #6) not a word from our guide. Oh well!

"guide" is just the DVC word for "salesperson."

they are really just your contact if you want to buy more pts directly. that's all.

(and adding more pts on a cruise probably meant that the commissions went to someone else, not your "guide.")

When you say haven't gotten "Welcomed Home!" by your guide since acquiring new points, do you mean at the guard gate? We visit 4+ a year and I have to say I can't think of once that I wasn't welcomed home! Even the somewhat surly/less than happy guard we've managed to get a few times at OKW manages to "welcome" us home after checking ID!
