    We booked a 3 BR Grand Villa for Labor Weekend. Originally requested near Hospitality House, but afterwards requested that we would rather been in a renovated room than near HH, but both would be ideal if those have been renovated. It seems the renovation is slow so that probably won't be an option. Either way, excited for our first stay at OKW since first purchasing in '06.

    I can honestly say I despise this, and all the 'new' beds, seen in the other newly rehabbed resorts. My shins are guaranteed to be completely black and blue by the end of each trip. Why would you design sharp corners on beds like that?

    We just don't care for the renovations at OKW or the renovations in any of the other resorts for two reasons.

    1. For us, the beds don't seem to be as comfortable as before. The new pull out sofas at Beach Club are very hard and as far as we're concerned, not fit to sleep on. Even our 12 year old grandson couldn't sleep on it. We haven't tried all the new pull out sofas at the newly renovated DVC resorts, but basically assuming they are most likely the same.
    2. These renovated rooms look like any other coastal styled resort that is on the upscale. Very generic. We loved the villas being very themed out with the Disney flair, part of the Disney experience and escape from the outside world. e.g. Beach Club is now very modern feeling, not turn of the century seaside as before.

    Even though the main reason for going back to your villa is to sleep, shower, regroup and maybe eat, for us it was just nice continuing the Disneyed out experience when you went back to your villa.
    Having fun with the Journey.

    I agree. The sofa sleeper in Beach Club is very uncomfortable. It's the same in the Poly studios. I like the idea of 2 queen beds in the studios.

    We had the pleasure of enjoying an OKW studio stay in May 2016. The blue walls, faux wood blinds, beach prints, and linens truly gave the room a coastal vibe. I understand that DVC is taking a light and bright approach to its renovations, but, to me, most of these renovations are light, bright, and bland. Regarding the beds, without a simple bed scarf, the stark white reminds me of hospital and nursing home beds.

    I have seen photos showing bed scarves on the two beds. I know at BLT when the soft refurb was done in June 2016 it took them awhile to get all of the bed scarves and pillows added to each room. I would hope that they will add some color by adding those items to the beds at OKW. If I was an OKW owner I would be writing DVC to let them know it needs the colored soft goods.

    It is beautiful. I was hoping they would add the sofa as the second bed similar to SSR.
