    We've been members of DVC for less than a year. Since then, we've stayed at OKW, Beach Club, and Boardwalk. Our home resort is SSR. So far, OKW is definately our favorite. We still want to try SSR (in Oct) and VWL ( no plans yet), but I have a feeling we'll settle on OKW as our favorite. It is so homey and relaxing.

    I have been a huge fan since the first time I stayed there in 1992, I was a guest of my Uncle who is a DVC Member.


    I bought my own membership in 1995 and have been back many, many times since...

    We will be looking for you at the event! DH and I are going, but we're staying at the Contemporary since this trip is for our 20th anniversary and we wanted to be spoiled in the Concierge!

    As to the original question - we love OKW. We have been DVC members with OKW as our home resort since 1997. We have stayed at BWV and WLV but we like OKW best because of the room size. It didn't make as much difference when our kids were younger, but now that they're 12 and 15 we need the extra space.

    We also like Olivia's and the boat service to DTD. When our kids were younger, they always tried to spend some time in Community Hall doing the children's activities. I can't say enough good things about OKW!

    We love staying at OKW. Nov. we will be staying there for our 5th trip. Enjoy going to the Gurgling Suitcase with our favorite bartender Ramona. She is such a wonderful person. Can't wait to see her smiling face.

    We love OKW! We stay there more than anywhere else. We also are beginning to like SSR...kind of the same feel of OKW.

    I enjoyed my 1st stay @ OKW in May...It took me until about day 3 though to find my way around...LOL...But I can find my way around SSR with no problem, I guess it's just what you're used to...I loved the relaxing feel of the resort!!! My one complaint though, is the food...I went solo and didn't want to eat TS @ Olivia's a lot...I ate breakfast there once and did enjoy it! But the Good's Food to go is just a counter..I would've liked something in between, like the AP @ SSR...It's not TS, but they have more substantial offerings that Good's...JMHO..
