Can someone list the categories or requests for rooms that are available for OKW on the DVC website. I have seen them once when booking but dont remember all of them. Little concerned when I have to get to the point of allocating points from different contracts, just to see that page. Scared I might hit the wrong button and book by mistake. Got a Dec trip coming and hoping to call in requests to DVC.

There's at least two more steps after that so it would be hard to book by mistake, but I understand. There's the normal categories of studio, 1BR, 2BR, 2BR lock-off, and 3BR Grand Villa, and each can also be booked near Hospitality House which is the same amount of points just guaranteeing that you'll bd near the HH. Was this what you were asking, or something else?

Those two sections just refer to a general location and are not specific booking categories.

Yes, those are areas in the resort you can request but has nothing to do with points.

Jennifer - loved your photos! Thanks for sharing.

We spent one night in a studio at OKW in February prior to heading over to AKV, just to check out the resort and save points, and we really loved it! So, now we have our first official OKW stay in October coming up and I can't wait.
I will be right in the middle of my training for the WDW marathon (my first!) when we will be at OKW, and I was wondering about jogging paths at the resort. I know there is one around the resort, but it is only about 1.5 miles long, and I will be needing to run around 15 miles at that time. Is there a path that goes from OKW to DTD to SSR and back to OKW? Some nice big loop I could do to get some miles in? I really want to stay off the roads if possible and stick to paths to be safe.
Can't wait to be at OKW! I am afraid we are going to fall in love with it and not want to stay anywhere else anymore!

Thank you and good luck. I am in awe of those that can run like that.

Yep there is a path from OKW to DTD and then you could go through SSR and back to DTD and back to OKW. I understand, but it's a shame that they don't let runners on the cart path at LBV golg course before the golfers, at that time of year the don't tee off unti 7:45 and if your an early runner you'd be done...

Thank you! That is great info. Yes, I'd probably be done or close to done by 7:45 (got to get back and shower to make it to RD)

They are out grooming the courses early in the morning and will chase you off. Plus the path isn't illuminated at night, so it might be dark. But you can follow the path to DTD and walk/run through DTD.

Bus Question

I've read through A LOT of this thread but still a little unclear about this:

So as I understand it, you can take a bus (except DTD) from say, South Pointe bus stop and get off at the HH. Now how do you get BACK to the South Pointe if walking isn't an option?

Thanks!

Take a resort or DTD bus (as DTD goes in the opposite direction) so, HH is the first stop. The rest of the buses HH is the final stop before they head out to the Parks.

Okay, DTD bus makes sense but... Resort bus? What is that? Like one for OKW?

Sorry, I'm just still unsure how to maneuver around this place. I've only stayed at Poly and POFQ. My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and can't walk too much so I want them to be able to go to HH and back to our room but not have to walk.

Thanks for the help!

On the DVC website, there is a list of requests that can be made I believe at 10 days out from your arrival, anyone have this list of OKW? This is what I am looking for. I know I saw one on a thread back some time ago, but cant find it.
