As another poster said, it is no different than any of the other timeshare complexes in the Orlando area, except you are paying Disney prices but with no Disney theming.
Having to possibly walk up two flights of stairs to get to your room is not a feature in any deluxe hotel.
I'll agree that OKW doesn't have in your face Mickey and Minnie like the value resorts or maybe the moderates. But you seldom see that in the deluxe resorts. The theming is Key West, Florida in the early 1900's. Pastels and gingerbread trim on the buildings. You will find hidden Mickey's all over the place.

Stairs can be a problem for some, haven't been for us and I have had two knee replacements since we bought into DVC at OKW. We'll be back there in October. But the large rooms really make up for any shortcomings. They are the largest on the Disney property.

My favorite resort, by far. I don't look for the "immersion" in Disney anymore. I love the space(especially when traveling with DS25 and his girlfriend22). I didn't have any problem with the buses, never waited more than 10 minutes.

It's quiet, pools all over the place and makes for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. I've stayed in all the deluxes...OKW is my "home" now.

We LOVE OKW because we think it has the largest trooms of all the DVC villas. We always have a car so we do not mind being spread out. If no car, request close to the HH.
