    Hmmmm.... we are heading to OKW in Oct, looking to stay at Turtle Pond. I'm doubting they are going to have that area done.

    If Turtle Pond isn't finished by October, it will be pretty darn close. By June when the Turtle Pond pool reopens, I'd expect most/all of 30-35 and 40-44 to be complete. That just leaves 36-39 in the three months leading up to October. Seems doable.

    I was concerned with the labor shortage possibly causing more delays.

    I tried a search of the closing of the "major resort amenity closure" and was unsuccessful. Does anyone know what that statement means? What will be closing at OKW?

    Turtle Pond Pool, is one amenity that has closed due to construction. We expect to get an update within a week as to the status at OKW. So stay tuned for a new article.

    I'm wondering why they haven't done the buildings in the Southpoint section. We stayed in that area a couple weeks ago, and the villa was so run down and in desperate need of a rehab that we requested a room change for the first time ever. Later, we learned that the guests before us had requested a room change also (maybe not for the room condition, but my guess is-probably).

    I really hope that many more rooms will be refurbished by the Spring of 2019, I wish I could say they will be completed by then but it seems to be going very slowly. Good luck getting the room you want for this reservation.
