Coffee Maker ?

Heading down in 17 days I thought I read something along the lines that there are Keurig type coffee machines in the villas at OKW...is this accurate? I have my stash of filters that we keep in our Disney "box" but I am not sure they will be useful this year. Can someone confirm for me? If it matters we will be in a 2 Bedroom.

The coffee makers are not Keurig and do not use K-cups. They use a different system.

What do you mean by a different system? Are the traditional paper filters no good?

They currently have the standard "Mr Coffee" pots at OKW.

Other resorts are changing to a "pod" style coffee maker but it is not a Keurig system.

We are there now and the coffee pots are still the standard Mr. Coffee ones. Your filters will be just fine.

Hi,
It will be my first time at OKW and one thing we'd like to do is play tennis. I could not get a villa near HH so I requested Old Turtle Pond near building 34 which seems the closest to the tennis courts. I wonder however how it works for reservations and for renting equipment. I'd rather not carry my tennis rackets if I can easily rent. Can't find info on this anywhere... Somebody has a clue as to reservation & renting policies and rates?

There is Hanks Rent & Return. If I remember correctly - it was on a first come first serve basis and the equipment could be borrowed for resort guest.... But the last time I played tennis was a very long time ago

Going to ge checking in today for our first stay at OKW. Drove down to Florida and we got here early so we spent the night at AKV Jambo house. Looking forward to 11days of OKW relaxation.

blender?

Can't seem to find the listing of appliances that are in the villas at OKW - I recently started eating protein shakes for breakfast and am really hoping there is a blender in the kitchen. Can someone either answer this or provide the link that has that info? Thanks!

I don't recall for sure if there is a blender. I think there is. But if not, there is a mixer.

We were there July 29-Aug 5 and when we got to the door of our villa DH couldn't figure out how to unlock the door! It took him a minute to realize it was the new system!

Appliances: 10 cup coffee maker (with 1 coffee starter pack: decaf and regular coffee, coffee filters, sugar and Equal packets), microwave, toaster, 1 bar mixer, blender, electric mixer, 4 burner electric stove/oven, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher. 2-sided kitchen sink has garbage disposal
