    Yes, you can pool hop to Caribbean Beach. The only pools that are off limits are Stormalong Bay (Yacht & Beach Club) and Uzima pool at AKL. Our kids usually like to hop to the pool at the Polynesian or Boardwalk. We usually phone ahead and make sure the pools are not at capacity before we drive over to the resorts.

    You will find a big difference in the rooms at OKW as compared to Saratoga Springs. While others have mentioned they are larger, you will realize how much larger they are as soon as you enter the room. In the studio, besides having two beds instead of one & a pull-out couch, the bathroom is much larger. In the one bedroom, the refrigerator is larger; the jacuzzi is a two person rather than one; the washer and dryer are full size instead of space saver; the one bedrooms have a porch with a table/chairs and plenty of room and the bathrooms are much larger. The decor may not be as new/nice, but we'll take the extra space over that any day.

Not necessary to be near the pool, just like to have a little quiet and near a bus stop. How many stops is there on the bus route??
    I am suprised that nobody replied to this thread, with so many DVC members out there. I believe there are around 5 Stops for the buses in OKW resort. Have fun next month on Your trip. This resort is fantastic!
