Buses at OKW were great this past spring. We were at the bus stop at 6:10 AM one day and picked up by around 6:25 AM (this was an EMH morning at 7 AM at MK) and also used the buses coming home later at night from MK - no problems at all. DH also used the bus internally to run back to the room from the Hospitality House when we forgot something in the room. Worked great.

Just booked OKW for May/June. Have heard reports that bus journeys can be lengthy due to the internal pick up and drop offs. This doesn't concern me too much as I am used to Port Orleans from previous trips, but, I learnt the best stops to jump on and off to ensure seating and less time doing the rounds in the hotel. Does anyone have any tips for how best to navigate the OKW bus system / routes that they might be willing to share please. Thanks in advance and a special thanks to the regular posters whose valuable information has been a great help esp. with respect to purchasing dvc.

The stop at the hospitality house is the very last stop when heading out to the parks. The stop at the Penninsular Rd location is the very first stop when coming back to OKW from the parks. We book the HH special booking (have to book likely before the 7 month window to get this) and we go to the HH stop when heading out and jump off at the Penninsular stop when coming home (it's right next to the HH pool area, so close to where we'd be in the HH section). There are buildings you can request that are near these 2 stops (that aren't in the HH special booking). Here is a link to the OKW resort map. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=722349 it's post #4. Buildings 11-14 and 23-25 are the special HH booking. The bus stop near building 23-26 is the Penninsular Rd stop.
