Default In OKW renovated villa

I havenít stayed at OKW since the latest renovation and must say Iím very pleased. The lumpy tiles are gone and the finishes feel very modern and fresh while still retaining a beachy feel. They included lots of USB charging ports and the electrical outlets come with tiny nightlights that come on when the lights go off. OKW has always had a lot of storage space and they managed to add even more with shelving on the back of the TV island and WOW is that a big TV!

I have a one-bedroom villa, ground level, right across from Hospitality House all to myself and feel utterly spoiled.

I am so excited that this renovation turned out well. I like that OKW is close to Disney Springs and is such a great deal point wise! Can't wait to check it out soon!

We were fortunate enough to get one of the newly renovated 2 bdrm lockoff villas there back in January, and it was fantastic! OKW is one of our favorite resorts now. It is a little farther out from the parks than we prefer, but the relaxed atmosphere, quality customer service, and extra space cancelled out any negatives. We absolutely loved it, and we will be staying there in the future.
