Oops! I was looking at the wrong map, i.e. a much older map. Thanks for the correction.

Hi all I just booked our 1st stay at OKW, going 2nd week in December. DH and I were at WDW last week and one of the DVC guides showed us around OKW and we were really impressed, it's gorgeous! We originally wanted to stay at AKV but I really liked the bright & cheery feel of OKW vs. the darkness at AKV.
Anyway, we're booked in a 2bdrm & I wait listed one near HH. Does anyone have any pics of OKW decorated for Christmas they wouldn't mind sharing or if you can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it

Thanks!!!

Make sure Member Services lists their room reservation as "traveling with" your reservation, and vice-versa. That should put you pretty close to each other.
Thank you, Chuck! Yes, she uses a non-electric chair. I think she'll be fine traveling to HH but they'll have a car in case it's too much for her.

Thanks also for the "traveling with" term. That is way easier than the long explanation I was going to give Member Services. LOL!

We have our first stay at OKW in 17 days and I cannot wait!

Any must-do's while I'm there? This resort just looks so peaceful and pretty and I know I'm going to fall in love w/ it. We will be in a 2BR villa!

First time staying at OKW in August (can't wait) - I booked a near HH 1BR but reading through this thread I'm starting to think I made a mistake. Should I change the reservation to a normal room instead? We usually enjoy the quiet pools more often than main pools anyways.

Everyone likes different things, but we stay at OKW often and love HH. I always request buildings 11-14. These are quiet, have great views of the golf course and it's such a short walk to the bus stop, pool, community house, etc. I don't like the HH buildings on the main road (24-26, I think?) because there was a lot of bus noise at night, at least in the room we had.

What is the room configuration of one bedrooms in buildings 11-14? Do they have elevators?

How are the 1 bedrooms configured in buildings 11-14 ? do they have elevators?

Those buildings don't have a separate bathroom door into the hallway (you have to go into the master bedroom). I believe the only buildings with elevators at 62-64.

Soooo excited! We're getting married December 10 and staying at OKW! I've stayed at several other DVC resorts, but never at OKW.

We have 5 studios reserved, but now I'm concerned about getting in the "right" building. My aunt recently broke her ankle (very badly) but is hoping to only need a wheelchair in the parks. With that said, we'd like to keep the walking to a minimum (with her ankle issue, a couple of kids, and almost everyone else in their 60s and 70s).

I've been reading such wonderful things about OKW, and I'm really looking forward for some good advice :-)

Thank you!!!

Tamara
