Our first trip "home" in November in a studio...I asked for top floor, golf course view...close to bus not required...we were in GV in #22 and the walk didn't bother us at all.

Can't wait. We've got ADR for 3D dessert and hubby is going on two mixology's. Thinking about doing either the new AK tour or segway at the campgrounds while hubby is golfing...

Of course the MVMCP too while we're there.

Can't wait to kick back and enjoy the peacefulness of OKW.

Mixology's are 6pm in EPCOT...they had a reduced price for DVC, or was it just an earlier DVC reservation. He is going Sat and sun the last weekend.

Alas this is only for the F&W Festival. I would think you could have a mini-seminar at The Gurgling Suitcase.

Two things I never get tired of. 1) Staying at OKW and 2) Saying HOME to new OKW Lover members on the DISboards.

We will be staying at OKW for the first time this weekend in a studio and I am really excited. We have stayed at SSR and BLT (our home resort) previously and like them both.

A few questions about OKW:

1) What time does the store close in OKW? Is it near check-in? Our flight doesn't get in until 11pm so we probably won't arrive until after midnight (using ME) or so but would like to get some milk for our toddler. Any suggestions if store will be closed?

2) Is there a DVD player in the studio?

3) Where in OKW is the best pool for toddlers and is there a playground?

TIA!

From what I remember, the General Store will be closed at that hour but it is located directly across from the check in area, just steps away. Maybe if the airport has a stand open, you can grab some individual bottles of milk on the way to ME? There is a DVD in the rooms, and you can rent movies from Communtiy Hall.

The pool area is wonderful for kids - they will love it.

I hope you will love OKW as much as we do!

1) The store will be closed then, so make sure you get some at the airport.

2) No DVD players in any DVC studios, but I think you can rent one. We just use our laptop and play it over the TV.

3) It used to be that there were small playgrounds at each of the neighborhood pools, but I seem to recall they took those out. There is a toddler sand are with HUGE sand pail etc behind the sandcastle slide near the main pool. I believe there is a wading pool there as well.

I believe there is still playground equipment at each of the pools, including the feature pool. I know in May there was a nice playground at the Turtle Pond pool, and last September, there was a nice, but smaller one, at the South Point pool. There was one at that time at the main pool, too, along with the wading pool Diane mentioned. Don't know from experience about Millers Road.
