We were there two weeks ago and did not pay for wi-fi (we used a DVC members points and I had my computer on 24 hours a day).

Sauna

When we were at OKW a year ago, I could never get the sauna (lighthouse) to get hot. Is this normal? We're going again in two weeks and I am curious if I'll be able to get my sauna time.

The sofabed is a queen-size. We were there in March and our granddaughters slept on it and said it was comfy. There is also a twin sleeper chair in the living room as well but we didn't use it.

Have fun, I am sure you will enjoy OKW.

Glad to know it is working at OKW. I called yesterday afternoon and was told by the front desk staff that wifi was not available.

Does anyone have a link that they can share to either a post in this thread, or another website that explains how the buses at OKW run? I've been totally slacking off on planning for our trip in January, and I remember being confused about buses during my last trip (I ended up at MK once instead of the bus stop by the building I was in ) Just want to make sure I understand so I can educate the rest of our party before we go.
Thanks!

Buses to all parks come into the resort and stop first at Peninsular Road to allow guests off and on. The second stop is South Point, the third stop is Old Turtle Pond, then on to Miller's Road and the last stop is Hospitality House. All buses leave Hospitality House for their marked park. There is also an internal bus that keeps making the loop from HH to each of the others in the same order reported, except that HH is on both ends instead of just the last one. DTD buses also will stop at HH both first and last.

SOOOO... If you are going to a park, hop on that bus, and you will get there, If you are going to anywhere within OKW, you have to be cognizant of the where you are in the order of the stops...

Same thing here. Evidently not all CM are aware of it. We were at AKV in August and when I asked they said it was available in Kadani while sitting in the lobby saw others using it. Sure wish everyone would be on the same page.

That helps me out, too. We're heading to OKW for the very first time this November - 25 days to be exact. Can't wait. Thanks for the info.

Thanks to a great DIS friend here, I get to go back for a "girls" trip with her and her daughters, and I get to go back to OKW which we loved in September.
