Do all the 1 BR units have the sleeper chair? We will have 5 plus an infant so we really need the chair as well as the couch. Is there sheets & everything for both?

And, last but not least ... When will we get housekeeping? 11 nights is the confusing thing for me

TIA
When my grandson was in a crib, we rented a crib from a company called A Baby's Best Friend (abbf.com) several times and were pleased with them. They supply all the bedding, etc. Everything was clean and sanitized. They deliver right to the resort and you set it up yourself (son-in-law said it was easy).

Yes, all 1brs at OKW have sleeper chairs with bedding. As far as housekeeping is concerned, I think (someone correct me if I'm wrong) since you have an extended stay, you will get a full housecleaning on the 4th day and trash/towel on the 8th day. We were there for 10 days last year and I was expecting T/T on the 4th day and was surprised when we got a full cleaning. When I inquired this is what I was told. Hopes this helps and have a great time!

A couple of pages back there was a mention of the rooms not having a tea kettle, I was at OKW this past August and the same as all of my previous visits, I called housekeeping on our first day and requested they bring one over, they did within an hour or so. I hope this is still the case. All the best to my fellow tea drinkers!

Thanks, Dee. I have always wondered why there was no tea kettle and used the small saucepan to boil the water. Now I'll just call housekeeping!

Just booked our first trip to OKW for this August. So excited! Love being just a boat ride away from DTD (have stayed at POR and SSR). This trip will be me, my niece (20), my DS (9), and my other DS (6). We will be staying in a dvc deluxe studio. Couldn't get a full week of HH. Any suggestions are welcome for building or any other thoughts...

You are gonna love OKW! We were there in Dec. and stayed in a studio in the Peninsular Rd. area and loved it. Easy walk right over the bridge to the HH as well as the first bus stop which is nice when coming back from the parks & if you don't want to ride the bus through the resort to all the other pickups, you can just walk over the bridge and get it at the HH as it is the last stop before going to the parks. The boat to DTD is great, one of our favorite things about OKW.
Have fun!

We were in Bldg. 24 and it was nice and quiet. It was on the first floor (requested) and didn't have much of a view but we didn't mind since it was Dec.
You could always request a higher floor but keep in mind that most of the buildings do not have elevators so you would be carrying luggage upstairs. As far as the view, in all the times we have stayed at OKW, we really have not had any bad views. We usually enjoy using the patio/balcony but with being Dec. we didn't use it this time.

We are DVC members and own at OKW and I don't think you will be disappointed.

peace offering. BTW, we got over 23" of snow last weekend. So you are not alone in the wish of being there.
I'm sorry, I wish I knew what room it was. It was a few trips ago. I now take pictures of the room # too. Lived and learned.
We are heading down in a few months, but not staying at OKW. As much as I love trying new resorts, there is something about the relaxing atmosphere of OKW that can't be beat IMO.

I was just wondering if folks have had luck wait listing HH? I have a dvc deluxe studio booked as HH is only available the last four days (8/20-8/27). I wait listed the last two nights at BCV. If I wait list HH too, is there an order in which they fill? If one wait list comes through, will it cancel out the other? New to DVC Thanks for help in advance!

The first waitlist that comes through will be taken. But if you don't cancel the second waitlist and it comes through, it will be set up and the first one released.

Thanks. I decided to go through with the second wait list (full week HH). If i understand correctly, when you go to finalize it says that whichever one goes first cancels the second. Hmmm, things to ponder.
