    WE arrived and everyone was so nice when checking in. When we got to Room 1123 we noticed a damp pool smell in there. I did my bedbug check around the couches and beds. I then noticed stains on the floor so I called the front check in to ask if we could be moved. They were so polite in everything and said,"Sure, just come to the front desk and we'll be glad to give you new keys.

    So after we finally found our room my batteries go dead. So I waited to change them out to check out the room, do bedbug check and check out the view. I must say I am in LOVE with the old furnishing!! I never thought I would say that but its really airy and light feeling in here. I love the colors and everything. The view is AMAZING!!! Its even better than the Golf course view even though if I would have gotten a golf course view it would have done just fine also!!

    I love OKW! Have fun and definitely leave some time to kick back and get some down time. It's one of the best places to do so! :goodvibes

    Nothing compares to relaxing on a balcony at OKW. I hope you enjoy your stay there.

    Is this your first time to OKW. If it is then make sure you ask a CM at the HH what is so special about the light house. Your staying at my favorite resort. Enjoy your trip.

    interesting
    that you said no neighbors...my relatives stayed in a 2 br last vacation (GG) and they literally saw very very few people anywhere....not really a good match as far as resort "feel" they wanted, said it was way too relaxed and not enough "Disney" but they did love the space the 2 br afforded.............
    Have a great time.............:wizard:

    Looking forward to your trip report. We will be returning to The World next year and we need to stay in a villa with a full-size kitchen and I am trying to figure out which resort to choose.
