Availability of 2 Bedroom Value at AKV - Spring Break

We are new members and own at AKV. We are planning our first trip for spring break next year.

We have decided that we would like to get a 2 bedroom value room. What are our chances at 11 months? I'm guessing good, but I think their are a lot fewer of these rooms.

Plus, do they have both lock offs and dedicated? Or just lock offs. We would prefer a dedicated.

Thanks,
Todd

They are all lock-off's. I don't own at AKV, but was able to book a 2 bedroom value for our spring break this year. I ended up cancelling the trip, but I was able to book for April 6th - 13th at the 7 month mark - the week past Easter.

If you book when the 11 month window opens, your chances are excellent.

You should be able to get it at 11 months out as long as you try to reserve exactly 11 months out, i.e., do not wait any time beyond the 11 month window to make the reservation.

As PPs mentioned, book early in the morning on the day your 11-month window opens. There are only 10 2-BR values at AKV. Good luck!

Given the limited number of rooms in that category and the busy time period you're interested in, I would walk it...just to make sure.

We own at AKV also, I would definately call as soon as you can to get in. Having said that, I've never been able to book a value room, even 11 months out, but I haven't tried calling the day it became available for us either, so that might be the key to that! GL!!
