This is not guaranteed, as it depends upon the logistics of who many departures/arrivals and what type are scheduled for January 10. For instance, if they have two bedroom lockoff units with departure, on group wanting to keep the one bedroom portion, and another group wanting to keep a studio portion, but they have someone arriving booked into a 2 bedroom lockoff...either the one bedroom people or the studio people will have to move to free up a full 2 bedroom lockoff for the new arrivals.

It usually works out just fine, but again, it isn't guaranteed.

In either case, you'll likely need to get new room keys at the front desk, as the one bedroom and studio of a two bedroom lockoff are keyed a like, so then they'll need new keys for the party remaining in the studio portion so their keys are unlinked from the next one bedroom guest.
Thank you so much for all of the info!!! So many things to consider. I really appreciate you taking the time to help :-)

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!

My first thing to do at OKW is to go visit the gurgling suitcase and enjoy a drink!!! But the best time for that is after a long day park walking.

We booked An 1 bedroom hospitality at okw I have a couple of questions...

1. Are we guaranteed this area or is this area with people who have a disabilities?

2. Do these rooms (HH) have elevators?

3. Master bath 2 entries or just 1?

4. If we want a nice golf view which building at the HH area should we ask for?

1. You should get the HH area ( Bldg 11, 12, 13, 14, 23, 24, 25, 26). Unless there was a problem and nothing is left when you check in.
2. None have elevators. Only 62, 63 and 64 have elevators and they tend to reserve them for medical needs. These are not HH area buildings.
3. One entry into the Master Bathroom through the bedroom. You'd need to be in a building numbered 30 or higher to get the entrance through the laundry room.
4. Just about any one.

Oh....that sounds like a great idea!!!

I am just a little bit excited since it's been 4 years since we've been to the World. Can't wait!!

I did my online check-in this morning so I'm even more pumped for this trip. I hope the 12 days of this vacation go VERY slow

Cheryl,

Check my post on page 241. It has the OKW map attached, including the legend for HH, elevator, handicapped access, etc.

Alas, we waited until the last minute to make reservations. Unfortunately could not get into to OKW, our home resort. The only rooms available were t SSR, hence we've wait-listed OKW and hope the wait-list gods shine upon us.

They really like to put medical needs guests in those building because of the elevators. Do you fit that category? When they first opened those buildings back in early the early 2000's, it was easy to get them just by requesting the new buildings. We have stayed in all three.

No we don't fit into that category.... Near hospitality 1 bedrm are available but reg 1 bedroom are not for week are going. We really want the second door to bathroom so teenage daughters do not have to come into our room to use the bathroom (we want 1 bedrm for some privacy). I figured with the proximity and the elevators 62 was used for guest with medical needs but was wondering if we had a chance of getting room in that building.

It doesn't hurt to ask when you register. We did online registration and, when we arrived, asked if anything was available in the HH category. They checked and gave us a room in building 63. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
