Club level is already completely full for that time. In fact, it is already full for that original time you had, March 16-21.
Thank you for that tip! I am a planner and not usually indecisive on our trip dates. This is the first year I am having such a hard time deciding. It is more difficult now that our kids are on different schedules from eachother. Was planning march now switched to January. Pros and cons for both. I would plan the club level for the next trip (2015) and we do own at AKV, so I will try at 11 months when the time comes.

We were able to book AKV Studio Club Level yesterday for Spring Break 2014 starting Friday, 3/28/2014 through Friday, 4/4/14 and we added a night this morning for check-out on 4/5/14.

AKV is our home resort and DH has mad skills! Love that man.

I can say that the 1 bedroom DVC CL are available it was the Studio CL that are so hard to get even at the 11 month window.

We were checking the DVC website to see what was available each day and the studio CL for that days booking was never available. So we knew we would have to book as soon as the website opened at 8am. DH was poised and ready to go. He had all information filled in and he kept refreshing using the Control R feature and when 3/28 popped up he jumped on it. This morning we checked the website and DVC Studio CL is currently available for booking at todays 11 month window.

Good Luck!

Definitely be on at 8am at 11 months

I couldn't get on until 9:15 the day of my 11 month booking and missed our dates for AKV CL studio - all gone in an hour and 15 minutes. Guess next year I'll have to go into work late. We took a value studio instead, which we love too - but will look fondly upstairs at all of you who were online at 8am (now I know who got those studios, since it sounds like a lot of you are going the same week in March ).

We stayed in a studio in the AKV CL for spring break 2011 and it was amazing. We loved everything about it, and highly recommend the Sunrise Safari. We had the first studio right outside the lounge, so were able to roll out and easily grab breakfast every day. Full housekeeping every day, like a "regular" resort, and when we wanted to make a last minute dining change, worked with the concierge at the desk to find something. As a bonus, DS loved pin trading with the concierge, who gave him lots of one-on-one advice on trading strategy.

Are there any one or two bedrooms as well or are they all just studios?

There are 5 two bedroom lock-offs that can be split into 5 one bedrooms and 5 studios.

I have actually been watching for CL for our Spring Break next year. I forgot about checking on 4/29/13, but when I got on the website at 10:50 am, 3/29/14 was available, so I quickly booked a studio!

Now I have to figure out how many days we actually need. We would like to conserve some points for later in 2014. I had been watching the previous 3-4 days and there was no availability.
