You'll likely need to cancel and rebook the reservation as non-HH, as there are NO buildings in the HH booking category with the two bathroom entrances.
Maybe I misunderstood. I thought HH location had some buildings in the 30+ range? Or am I doomed to the entrance through the bedroom?That's a different booking category. It would be like booking SSR and asking to be put in OKW.
Not true. I was there last year during Christmas week, and you can get bottles of dr pepper at the grab and go market inside the Dolphin / Swan resort. Clerk at the counter said they carry it all the time.You won't find any Pepsi, including Dr Pepper, at WDW. It's totally Coke products. You have to go offsite and buy your own. They might not even have any at the Speedway Stations on the property.
You can find Dr Pepper on site if you explore a little bit. Last Christmas, I spent a week exploring and taking pictures of all the decorations at WDW resort hotels. I came across DR Pepper in the Grab N Go Market inside the Swan or Dolphin resort (can't remember which), but the clerk at the register said they carry DR Pepper and Pepsi products all the time.Another Texan who loves Dr Pepper here. One reason I'm a faithful Southwest Airlines flyer is that they have Dr Pepper. I remember one time, as soon as I got on the plane, I told the flight attendant, "I haven't had Dr Pepper for a week, you'd better have some for me!"
In all the times I've stayed at OKW, I never noticed that they had Pepsi products (and especially, hopefully, Dr Pepper). I'll check that next time. DH loves that Olivia's has his favorite sandwich, the Duval Burger.
The new issue of Disney Files magazine says that the detergents are from a sustainable product company, and vegetable based.Got a few surprises during our OKW stay this week. We had to replace the toilet paper roll and the replacement was DOUBLE PLY, not that single, so thin you can read the newspaper through it stuff. It still wasn't very soft, but it was a lot better than that really, really cheap stuff. Also, they have replaced the type of dish and laundry detergent. We've had Palmolive Green for so long in the kitchen, but it is now a clear EOS liquid. Same with the laundry detergent. No powder, just a small bottle of EOS laundry detergent that is good for two moderate sized loads.
I don’t have direct experience, but I believe I’ve read that the conversion of credits takes place at the point of sale rather than at the resort. However, you can probably get definitive answer from the Dining Plan forum - https://www.disboards.com/forums/disney-dining-plan.116/.I am trying to calculate getting a QS dining plan for the OKW portion of our upcoming vacation. I have heard you can take 1 QS credit and convert at the resort desk to 3 Snack credits. Has any one done this recently? Is this still a "standard" policy?
We are doing an Epcot Food and Wine one day and it appears that using snack credits for the booths at the Festival might make the QS dining plan worth it for us.
Thank you. I will ask over there.I don’t have direct experience, but I believe I’ve read that the conversion of credits takes place at the point of sale rather than at the resort.

Fortunately, every unit is quiet. You won't have a problem getting a quiet villa. Other than groundskeepers starting mowing in the morning, especially if you are on the golf course and they need to mow before the course opens for the morning. It doesn't last very long though. We have only found the main pool to be noisy during the daytime hours when they have the pool parties for the kids. The porch is one of the best things about OKW.Hi! I am not a DVC owner but have had OKW on my "bucket list" of places to stay for several years now. My husband is turning 50 this February so we just booked a 5 night stay in a 1 bedroom at OKW for his birthday! We are so excited!
We've been to Disney many, many times so this time is mainly to check out the festival of the arts in Epcot, which we have not done yet. The Star Wars stuff in HS is also new since our last visit (December 2018) but isn't a huge priority for us. If we can get in, great--if not, it's not a huge deal.
It's too early for me to do any online check in, but I'd like to request a unit that is as quiet as possible. I'm picturing quiet mornings on the balcony with a cup of coffee and a bagel We don't have any mobility issues, so I'm thinking an upper floor, and far away from the hospitality house is just fine with us!
We are excited to check out the Gurgling suitcase!
