To All OKW Experts...

Do you know what buildings are considered "near the Hospitality House"?

TIA

11-14, 23-26.

There are others that are also close, but not in the guaranteed category. They include 62-64, 15-18 and 27-29. All are a short walk to HH and a short walk from both the Peninsular Road and Hospitality House bus stops.

Is there boat transportation to DTD? Can you take that same boat to PORS?

Yes, the boats go from OKW to DTD. To get to PORS you would have to take the boat down to DTD, then get on another boat that returns to POFQ and RS. To get back from PORS to OKW would also require a stop at DTD. Wouldn't be the quickest way, but you could do it.

If you had a car, it would take literally 5 minutes to PORS, on the boats, it might take 45 minutes.

Also,the OKW boat goes to the Pleasure Island dock at DtD, and the PORS boat goes to the MarketPlace dock.
So, at DtD, you would either have to walk to the MarketPlace dock, or else take the DtD red flag shuttle boat that loops from WestSide dock to Pleasure Island dock, to MarketPlace dock, and back to Wesstside dock.

Thanks! No matter what building in the Hospitality House area, we can still easily walk over towards the water...And the Gurgling Suitcase!

There is no action at OKW. It's fondly known as the DVC Retirement Community. Sidewalks roll up around 7:30 or 8PM.

Actually that is just a myth to keep people who believe it out of the best resort

We've been there, but it was in 2006. And I know that things change...As for it being quiet there...NOTHING could be more quiet than Bay Lake Tower!!!! It was like a ghost town over there.
