    Since we aren't DVC members we rarely wander on to DVC properties. However, back when I was playing golf regularly one of the courses that I played a few times was Lake Buena Vista. It wanders around and through Old Key West. If you have never been back there this property is GORGEOUS. We have also eaten a couple of times, for breakfast at Olivia's. It is a great restaurant and I have never seen it overcrowded at the times of year that we are there. I'm trying to remember to keep it in mind when I am struggling to decide where to eat dinner sometime.

    Tink, I know why you love this resort. Donna and I are talking about trying to find someone we can purchase points from to stay there sometime.

    It is an absolutely beautiful and peaceful place. We've had some very nice meals at Olivia's.
    We bought OKW sight unseen and haven't regretted it once.

    You are so right John. We had the opportunity to eat there on a Good Friday dinner and it was awesome. We stayed at PORFQ, took the boat to DTD, then another boat to OKW. Long way to get there but hey it is always good to see some golfers worse than me hitting right into the Sassogula River.

    OKW has been our home resort ever since we became DVC members way back in 1992.
    We have had some fabulous vacations there although it has now been several years since our last visit and we must plan a vacation to take in another stay there sometime.
