Thank You, really useful to know. We normally have our own car & go to a waterpark for the last day so we can shower & change to warm clothes for sad trip home. But using ME and having to leave 4hrs before our flight I'm sure DH will prefer to stay around the pool at OKW, though if bus back from TL doesn't take too long may persuade him to go there for a few hours!

If 23 through 26 are indeed "near HH" I will do as you suggest, Chuck, and request "Peninsular Rd Area".
Buildings 23-26 are definitely "near HH". I also prefer, and put in a request for, Peninsular Road.

Thank you for the confirmation.

I did online check-in today and checked the boxes "Peninsular Road Area" and "2nd floor". There was also a choice of "room ready on arrival" to take priority over the 2 requests -- I didn't check that box (would rather wait for the room I want! ).

Thanks again!

Grills?

DH and I will be staying at OKW in 90 days. we have a 1br w/out the HH option. We had thought of buying steaks, chops, and hamburger with the thought of grilling some while we are there. We have stayed in building 45 before and loved it so much that I was thinking of requesting that area. However, being close to a grill is important. I see that the grills are near the quiet pools, which building would be close to the pool, but also a similar view to building 45-46? Thanks so much!

Bldg 55 should have a canal view, and it is right next to a quiet pool.

Hi All,

I added 2 days on to my Disney trip in July, so I'll be moving over to OKW studio HH. Having never stayed at OKW and only going there once for breakfast at Olivia's... what can anyone tell me about OKW?? Is there a room request I should be making?? Any and all advice and knowledge is welcome!

TIA
~Nannette

OKW HH location Help

We are booked at OKW for a week at the end of March. We own there but this will be our first time staying there. We have booked a two bedroom in the HH area and we will have our three young grandchildren with us. We are not sure if we should request the buildings in the 23 area or the buildings in the 12 area. we would like an upper floor with a nice view, close to the pool for the kids. can anyone give me any suggestions of what to request (I know it is only a request)? Is there any undesirable buildings in the HH area? What about water views? Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA

I'm staying at OKW next month in a studio. I've never done so before - always had a one or two bedroom. What's my best request for something my HH? Peninsular Road?

My family is staying at OKW for 11 nights for spring break & I have a couple of questions. Please

Has anyone ever requested a full sixe crib? Are they available? I read they are supposed to be available in the resorts. My DD is 18 mo old but the size of a 3 year old - I'm not sure she will be comforable in a pack n play.

Do all the 1 BR units have the sleeper chair? We will have 5 plus an infant so we really need the chair as well as the couch. Is there sheets & everything for both?

And, last but not least ... When will we get housekeeping? 11 nights is the confusing thing for me

TIA

We stayed at OKW last October and loved it! Can't help with the crib. Yes, they provide bedding for both. We used the couch and sleeper chair and both kids thought they were fine. I'm pretty sure housekeeping is every 4 days (arrival day is day 1), so if you arrive on say a Sunday you'd get it on Wed, Sat, Tue.

I haven't seen full sized cribs at OKW. I don't think they have them. You could rent one if you really want one, though.

For housekeeping, if you are staying on a points stay, day one is check in day. Day four you get full cleaning, day eight you get trash removed and towels replaced, if you were there for 12 nights, you'd get another full cleaning on day 12.

If you are there seven nights or less, you get trash and towel service on day four. Once you are there eight nights or more, you get full cleaning first, then trash and towel, then full cleaning and so on.

You will get the sleeper chair in the living room. And the sleeper sofa and chair will both have sheets. If they aren't already on the bed, check the closet for a plastic bag containing sheets, blankets, pillows.

We had the fuller size crib...and we're at OKW...call and add the request to your reservation...it's only a request, and it comes with sheets. It is bigger than a pack n play.
