    We would like to book a concierge club level room in Apr 2025 at AKL. My window opening in a couple months I've been trying to monitor availability but I can never find this room type available. How do I book a concierge level room?

    Jambo, Jason! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney with your question. Like Timon and Pumbaa, I'm here to be your helpful sidekick on this Disney Vacation Club journey. Let's get to it! 

    My problem-free philosophy is that any time is a GREAT time to plan a trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. This resort is one of our family's favorites (it is hands-down my oldest daughter's #1). And rolling Club Level? Nice! The Kilimanjaro Club has an exclusive lounge, great food throughout the day, and concierge staff to assist with vacation planning and recommendations. As an added bonus, all of the Club Level Studios and Villas offer gorgeous views of one of the Savannas or have a pool/water view. 

    Jason, my suspicion is that you aren't seeing available Club Level bookings because the inventory of these accommodations is quite limited. I'm not sure if Animal Kingdom Villas is your Home Resort, but if it is, your chances of scoring a Club Level reservation are better as you'll be able to take advantage of the Home Resort Priority Period 11 months before your planned check-in date. Unfortunately, since the resort is so popular, it will likely be difficult to reserve if you are trying at the 7-month mark for Members with a different Home Resort. 

    My best advice is to have a plan B in mind for your 2025 stay and create a Waitlist for the Club Level accommodations you're hoping for. I will say that my husband and I stayed at Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village earlier this month for the first time (we usually stay at Jambo) and absolutely loved it. The pool and the fitness center are outstanding, and you have easy access to Sanaa, which is one of our favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort. The bread service is not to be missed!

    I hope this information is just what you need for your planning purposes, Jason! It's been a pleasure, and I hope you'll reach out again to our planDisney pride if we can help with any other questions. 

    Hakuna Matata!
