The difference between the resort studios and the regular studios is in the kitchen. The resort studios don't really have a kitchen per say, they have a fridge, a Kuerig coffee maker and they are adding microwave ovens. They don't have the traditional kitchen area with a sink and storage. The traditional studios also have a regular drip coffee maker and a toaster.

Again not familiar with DLR yet but we have run into the beverage coolers at studios Poly SSR,& BCV Since the reopening we don’t stay in them often and when we do it’s an accessible room so not sure if that makes a difference…
And yeah beverage coolers are one of my pet peeves-

There is a lot of chatter that they are appearing in more and more studio locations-
anyone here find them elsewhere?

my initial purchase at OKW in 1997 for $50 a point (direct from Disney) sounds really good right now. Except for the $9+ a point member fees. We'll probably be selling this last contract sometime next year.
