One question I have about OKW is this:

Do they have somewhere where you can grab like a croissant or cereal for a snack credit on a morning? Do they sell these at the general store or can you get in Olivia's? I know you can at the AP in SSR but this is a big thing for us as we're the 'grab and go' type of guests!

And also - is it true that at SSR, the studios have one queen bed and one queen sleeper sofa? This seems very poor for a deluxe villa? Even the moderate standard rooms always have two queen beds?

We buy cereal and milk from the shop and have that for breakfast. There is one grab and go counter for breakfast but I prefer getting something and putting it in fridge which is our plans for feb

OKW was the first DVC resort and the only one with 2 beds in the studio.

The sofabed is so you have somewhere to sit and relax as they are designed as home away home hence the kitchenette in the studio too.

In total, this journey takes around 15 mins at a regular walking pace.

Congrats on booking OKW Beth!
Boat from Springs gets overloaded at peak times, twice been diverted in the last two weeks I was there to pick up excess SS passengers while staying at OKW. Done the walk from the dock to West Side, 15mins, 20 - 25 to the rest of DTD.
