We had the pleasure of staying at OKW this past February. There was a mix up with our ressie's at AKL and I stayed on line every day for a week trying to find an opening somewhere else for the week we were going. Thanks to a convention there was nothing! Then one day, an opening at OKW was available!!! It's almost as if we were meant to be there the way it all worked out. We booked a studio for 6 nights and when we got there we were bumped up to a 1 bedroom villa for free! Needless to say we are HOOKED. If this was Disney's plan all along, it worked!

We are going again Feb 08 and can not think of a better place to stay. This time we booked the 1 bedroom ourselves. We can not wait!!! I love everything about this resort and so does DH. We hope to one day be DVC owners too.

We are staying at OKW during our next trip and cant wait as it will be our first DVC stay.

A couple of q's if you all dont mind....

How long does the boat take to get to DTD and what are the operating hours?

Which part of DTD does it drop you off at?

We are in a 2bed, do we get a dvd player in our room?

Do the buses rum directly to all parks or do we have to go to change at the transportation centre?

Can we buy detergent etc on site or is it provided?

Many thanks for all your help, i promise to take lots of photos so i can add to this post when i get back.

Many thanks

Emma

Been owners at OKW since 1992. As the saying goes in our family, "Old Key West is the Best". We have stayed at VWL, BWV, BCV, HHI and we still like OKW. Now that the kids are older, BCV are also moving up in popularity for them because of the easy access to Epcot.

How long does the boat take to get to DTD and what are the operating hours? I believe it is about 15-20 minutes. You will make a stop at SSR.

Which part of DTD does it drop you off at?The boat drops you off right by Rainforest and Capt. Jacks.

We are in a 2bed, do we get a dvd player in our room?No, only in the living room.

Do the buses rum directly to all parks or do we have to go to change at the transportation centre?Yes, the buses run straight to the parks. If you want to go to a different resort, you will have to take the DD bus and catch the desired bus or you can take the bus to TTC and catch a resort bus.

Can we buy detergent etc on site or is it provided? Yes, you can buy detergent in the General Store but you will get a single use box of Tide to get you started.

We are going again in Feb! I can't wait. We are absolutely in love with OKW. We aren't in DVC yet but if everything goes as planned we should start buying points around 2009!

Just returned from my first stay at my home resort, OKW!!! We were there 10/5-10/13. It was so beautiful. We stayed in a 2BR Lockoff. The rooms are so big and spacious, I loved it!! It really felt like you were in the Key West.

I look forward to staying there again!!
