    4 - Last stop is at HH. Route is as follows:
    Peninsular Road
    South Point
    Turtle Pond
    Millers Road
    Hospitality House

    Internal (DTD/TL) Bus stops at HH first (and last, too, I think).

    What are the choices that are given for the online check in?

    I requested near HH....we'll see what happens. As long as we have a 1st floor & near a bus stop, we'll be fine. :goodvibes

    That's not a request. That's a booking category. You are either in the HH area or not based on your reservation.

    Here you go!

    "Add up to 2 room requests. Though we try to honor all requests, we cannot guarantee them, unless otherwise indicated below.

    Housekeeping Requests
    • Pack 'n Play® Playard
    Room Requests
    • Request Hospitality House Area
    • Request Old Turtle Pond Road Area
    • Ground floor
    • Request Peninsular Road Are
    • Request Miller's Road Area
    • Request Canal View
    • Request Canal View
    • Request South Point Road Area
    • Requests Dual Lavatory Entrances
    • Request Fairway View
    • Near transportation"


    Quite a list compared to BWV which I'll show for comparison:

    "Room Requests
    • Ground floor
    • Near transportation

    Housekeeping Requests
    • Pack 'n Play® Playard"

    :lmao:

    Apparently it is both. What I posted above is exactly the options given when doing online check in. Considering that there are buildings close to HH that are not in that category it's not completely surprising.

    There are several "online booking requests" that are not possible when you look at the different resorts.

    Wow quite a selection. I had already called member services to request the Turtle Pond area, so I'm good to go.

    I'm not understanding - or my post may have been unclear but each resort has different lists.

    The one I posted above in blue is specific for OKW.

    The one I posted in purple is specific to BWV.

    As far as I can tell each one has a possibility of being fulfilled at BWV. OKW has the exceptions if your booked in the HH category then a couple of the neighborhood requests couldn't be fulfilled and the lavatories. But that's the trade off if you booked HH. They just aren't 100% smart with the request list but since they aren't guaranteed I guess DVC doesn't particularly care. I don't think it can be argued that you can't be near HH even though not booked into it so that would be a valid request and is an option to choose.

    Thank you for that list! I haven't yet decided if I'm checking in online or not, but the list is helpful!

    We're starting to get excited for our first stay at OKW!

    Actually, I think part of the issue is that the request list is there for those who book through CR. If you book through DVC, you must specifically BOOK HH area to get it. It can't be a request as such. I think it probably is the request of "near HH", and that would usually mean buildings 28 or 29. I'd be pretty scared to make that request, since I hope to NEVER have to stay in one of those buildings again.

    I was glad to see they added "canal view" to the list. That way, when I request South Point, they will know that I really want one of the canal rooms.:thumbsup2

    What's wrong with 28 and 29?

    Or you could request Miller's Road area and Hospitality House area and potentially end up in 62 or 63 or even 16 without being booked in the HH category. That would be a way to indicate you didn't mean 28 or 29. (I too am curious what is so bad about them?!?! We've been in bldgs 62, 56 and 14 so we have a several areas left to check out.

    Canal view must be a favorite request since they had it on the list twice! :rotfl:

    29 is very close to the road and the bus noise can be quite an annoyance. We were unfortunate enough to get the studio on the bottom floor next to the road and it really was the worst. We were only there for 4 days so we didn't complain or ask for a change, but whenever we book now I always state any building but 29.

    Hey Happy Belated Thanksgiving OKW Lovers!

    Just got back from a fantastic week at OKW. We were in #3424, 2bd, villa was in great shape, clean & other than a shortage of TP, it was all good. New key cards worked well. Olivia's for arrival lunch, finally got the famous fried chicken, awesome! Introduced some new friends to the Turtle Krawl from the Guirgling Suitcase. The seven of us had a fabulous time.

    Gosh, can't wait to go again!

    PS. Not a fan of the Bergemot/Grapefruit shampoo/conditioner,oh well!

    That's correct, and neither has much of a view of anything other than very close bushes. I know some like the proximaty to HH from those villas, but I found 29 at least to feel like it took about the same as walking from 45 and 46.:confused3
