Stayed in 62 last summer, 2nd floor. Quick walk to the bus stop and HH. Have also stayed in 64 and 32. 32 was nice, right next to the busstop and short walk to Turtle Pond pool.

Enjoy your stay!

Hi and welcome KRuns!! The Hospitality House is the Main Reception Area that includes the check - in area, Bell services, General Store, Olivias Restaurant, and quick serve food and Gurgling Suitcase(drinks). Also the marina and feature pool.

The Hospitality House rooms in post #6 outlined in blue are considered very close to this area.

So people requests this area to be close to amenities.

My family and I are heading down Dec 27 through Jan 5. We will have 2 older teenage boys and I was thinking of Buildings 41 or 43. We have a 2 bedroom Villa. Any thoughts, comments?

Good location in terms of proximity to the Turtle Pond quiet pool. I also think the bus stop is relatively close.

My kids and I will be staying at OKW Jan 4-15. We looked around at a bunch of the Disney resorts when we were there in February and we all had this one near or at the tops of our lists. They liked that it was quiet, spread out, private, pretty, and had key lime pie at the snack bar (LOL). They also liked the bus system. From looking at the map it seems that buildings 45-56 in the south end of the resort would be our best bet for having that tucked away feel. Does that sound right? The kids will be 17 and almost 15 at time of next visit so walking is not an issue.

I'm pretty sure this is true. We've been going to old key west since I was about 8 or 9. My grandparents have their dvc points there and bought the first year or so. It is not the most exciting resort ever, but we love being there. It is a relaxed place and we have tons of happy memories there Enjoy your trip!

Lenth of bus ride to MK?

How long is the bus ride to MK? Also how long does it take for the bus to loop through the entire resort? I am thinking that this would be the longest bus ride out of all the parks?

We have also stayed in building 35 as well as 33 and enjoyed both. The walk to the main area is short, you are right by a bus stop and a quick walk to the Turtle Shack which has a great quiet pool. We're not staying there on our upcoming trip, but plan to on our next trip. We love how relaxing it is there. My kids especially love that there is basketball and tennis right by the main pool so everyone can do what they want.

We usually plan on 30 minutes from our stop to the theme park. Lots of times it is less than that once the bus arrives at the bus stop. Lately we've been getting on at South Point. But the last trip we got on at Millers Road. MK is only about 8-10 min from OKW once you leave the resort. Epcot is even closer.

Hi again! Looking at the map, what is a "Grand Villa" (outlined in yellow)?
How do I know if I have a HH booking? If it doesn't say anything, is it pretty safe to assume that I don't?

I am going for marathon weekend, so I want to be close to the entrance, prefer not too many stairs, and am staying in a 2 bedroom suite (or joined 1br + studio). I am looking at the buildings at the top of the map, so am I barking up the right tree?

Thanks a million!

(tried to quote the map but I don't have enough posts to be allowed images yet!)
