For my upcoming trip I am not able to do online check in, Disney are saying because the resort has taking over assigning the booking already so am not able to do it, but I am pretty sure there is some kind of technical glitch in the system as I should have been able to do check in 50 days ago now & I tried, many times. I check in May 2nd.

The reservation is all correct, so we are down to checking in the traditional way on the day; which actually doesn't bother me at all. But I am bothered that I can't then put in my room requests; as we have people sleeping on the sofa bed it's important to us to get the rooms with twin entrances to the bathroom. I know I can switch out on the day if possible, but I'd rather get it squared up before hand.

Since I can't do online check in, is there a way of getting a request to the resort directly? Faxing is not an option & if I can avoid an international call it would be a bonus.

TIA.

Calling the resort directly is not a good idea. You will not get anyone at the resort, but your call will be routed to the virtual front desk, a call center that really doesn't take room requests.

You should send an email to DVC Member services via the members website "contact us" link and request a room in building numbers 30 and higher. Be sure your reservation is not in the Near HH booking category.

on-line check in

So I'm not a DVC member(yet!!!) but we rent points and love staying at OKW. Someday we may stay somewhere else, but if it ain't broke why fix it. I keep seeing people posting about online check in, my wife did on-line check in last time we stayed but we still had to go to the lobby and physically check in, my question is what is the advantages of on-line check in?

The advantages are fairly minimal.

They do try to assign you a room based upon your estimated arrival time, if one will be available.

Also, for those that charge to the room, by entering the CC number on line, the resort personnel do not have access to the number, they only see the last few digits and that there is a card on file. There have been some rare instances of having the number skimmed when checking in at the resort.

Long time lurker for this thread and I just wanted to post that we just got back from our first stay at OKW. I wasn't sure I was going to like the resort but I can see why you all have fallen in love with it.

We were in bldg 23 on the first floor and couldn't have been happier. The room was HUGE and we loved our veranda overlooking the golf course and pond.

My mom was actually sad when we checked out and went to the VWL for the rest of our stay

I grew up going to OKW almost every time we went to Disney World. I'm glad to have stumbled on this thread. To me, OKW is THE Disney World resort.

We're currently booked to go there this September. My wife is hoping the waitlist for BWV pans out, but I'm plenty happy to have OKW as our "backup."

One advantage to online check-in is that your room keys and car pass are already prepared. At least ours was. We just walked up and gave them our name and they had our little packet already prepared. Keys and all!

Just booked our March trip for the 2 of us in a 1 bedroom at OKW again. These March trips are always a pre-curser to our Spring Training trips to Fort Myers, and next spring will be no different.

Now you have me worried! We're doing an OKW/BCV split stay next month. The only reason is my kids want to experience SAB.
