We have done this on the DDP before but had a later time. As this is going to be our first full day at WDW we will be up early as our body clocks will think it is midday - we are in the UK - and thought that an early breakfast would be good for the 4 very very hungry kids we have

We did several character breakfasts when we were there in May. Tusker House was by far our favorite.

A question for all the experienced OKW disers. I currently have reservations for 2BR 12/27 - 12/30 and 1/1 - 1/5. I am waitlisted for 12/20 - 1/1. What are my chances?

Are you looking for 12/30, 12/31 and 1/1? Not that good.

I have Dec 30 and Dec 31 waitlisted. If we don't get in, we end up going to SSR to 2 Studios. I can live in hope and maybe some pixie dust.

We haven't tried Tusker yet - next trip maybe. It looks different - in a good way However, on your transportation question, I am going to assume that if they are doing 8 am reservations that the bus system should be running at 7 am. Other than car its the only transportation into that park and the whole not needing a vehicle to stay "on property" is one of of thier marketing tools... Hopefully someone can answer it with a definite.... This is the resorts phone # 1-407-827-7700, maybe you could call and ask them if you dont get an answer....

Hoping with you!!! I'm on the waitlist for SSR or OKW studio for my 10 year anniversary for the night of 12/30 and 12/31.. Here's to hoping both of our waitlists DO come thru!!!

Well if our waitlist comes through then yours will be SSR. Right now I have 2 SSR studios. Looking to make that move to OKW 2 bedroom

On our way back home after a wonderful week at OKW. We were in 1 bedroom in Millers Rd section. (1914).
Have a question..... What exactly do people use those cupboards and counter space for next to the dining table? With only the 1/2 shelves in them, we couldn't figure out what they're use was!

When we have people (kids) sleeping in the living room, that area is typically where they store their stuff. My experience has been that high school and college-aged girls don't use drawers, they just spread out! We'd stuff their things in that cabinet and close the doors!

We're going to be staying at OKW for the 1st time ever this fall. When I was putting in a room request, I told the DVC guy that I just wanted to be as close as possible to the main building. He said he was putting in a request for us to be in the Millers Rd section. How did y'all like this area?

Yeah me too. I have 3 kids and they divide up that space to keep their stuff.

We really liked it. We were very close to one of the smaller pools and it's also about a 5 minute walk to the Hospitality House and the main pool. We thought it was great!
The only downfall is that when you are taking a bus back from one of the parks, the Millers Rd stop is the last one before the Hospitality House. It's about a 15-20 minute ride around the resort.

We put our coolers, rubbermaid containers (that we use for traveling with food and stuff - kind of like the Owners Locker) in the cabinet. We use the counter for all our snack stuff. Especially all the extra soda or water stuff.

Thank you so much for this info! It's really helpful. Since we'll have our car on this trip, I'm wondering if it would be better for us just to drive to the parks ourselves. Although, I'm sure DH won't be too fond of that idea.
