Here what it says under accommodations on the OKW page on the DVC website. Studio's don't have blenders though.

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
Really love the tap system like on the fantasy.

That was us a few weeks ago. We had one of the CM's with us with groceries that we ordered and we the 4 of us were trying to figure out what part of the key went into the plastic plate...

The CM just chuckled and showed us what to do. I said when were these put in, since we were there in January and they weren't like that!

Funny.

DH and DD13 were doing the same thing! They tried this way and that way and then we figured it out!

Was just there for 10 days and loved every minute of it! We were in Bldg 23 on the first floor. The room was clean when we checked in and we didn't have any issues through the stay. All in all, it was very pleasant.

Yes, there is a blender in the 1br+ so you can do your shakes.

And the new door locks are a big improvement.

I have to laugh at everyone who is looking at which building they want. I did too and have read the entire blog from #1. I wanted to make sure I am informed on the "best" building. When I asked my DH and 2 DDs (18 and 22) what their perference was. The closest building to a bus station.
They really didn't care about anything else. sigh

We checked in on Aug 20th and still here for a few more days. We are in a two bedroom in building 18. Love the layout and size. Main pool is fun and the quiet pool is great just beside building 19. Today is going to be a wet day for everyone. Looking at going to the movies or to Disney Quest. I love my home resort of SSR but would not hesitate to stay at OKW again.

I wanted to thank everyone for all the building info.

Here is the request I gave via email

Buildings 30 or higher to ensure the 2nd access door to the bathroom. Upper floor preferred. Preferred buildings (in order): 62, 63, 64, 45, 46, 55, 56, 37, 43, 44.


Yes, overly detailed I know. I knew 62,63 and 64 were a long shot due to being HA buildings.

We ended up with...

55, top floor! On the corner,right next to the pool peek view of the pool, nice view of the canal with plenty of trees and privacy. LOVED it! couldn't have been happier.

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!
We put the kids suitcases in there! It was SO nice not to have them out!

And please don't take the pool towels for use in your villas either. Wrap up in a towel if you are wet and head back to your villa, but please don't take a stack to use in the villa. They cost more to launder than villa towels because of the sun screen and other stuff at the pools.

Order an extra towel pack for $6 - four extra bath towels, two extra hand towels and four extra face cloths. Or order extra trash and towel service. Or bring your own from home.

DVC villas usually have as many bath towels as sleeping spaces. Sleeps four = four bath towels. Sleeps eight = eight bath towels.

We all need to work together to keep our costs down.
Unfortunately if you have 5 people, they seem to only stock for 4 even though the 1 bedroom sleeps 5. We had to call for another towel at OKW and at Vero as they only had 4.

Could you let me know where your location was/which building as it looks perfect for us. Thanks very much, Catherine
We loved 55, gorgeous view, private, quiet and so peaceful!

Who did you email? The basic members@ address? I need to add a cleaning request and don't really feel like calling for a 2 second conversation. Thanks!

But the one bedrooms that only sleep four tell you that you need to provide for the fifth person. And you need to pay for that extra towel if you need it. But the one bedrooms that sleep five officially - BLT, AKV and OKW - should be given five bath towels.

Should, yep. But we weren't. Nor did we have bedding for the chair and had to ask for that as well. We were in one that sleeps 5 officially. Same problem at Vero, there we had the bedding for both the sofa and chair but were short a regular and a beach

Its an RFID system whereby you simply tap your KTTW card on the lock rather than having to insert the card into the door.
