I just bought branson -plat. 2bd lockoff and still waiting for marriott to transfer ownership to me. Was curious to see what results current owners have had trading the studio portion using a summer deposited week?

Can you pull or see online (via II website using studio) 2bd room summer season in cypress harbor, MMC, or MFV?

With a summer platinum studio, I can see 1 bedrooms at Grande Vista and Horizons. Can't see 2 bedrooms at Cypress Harbour (you'd need to try flex change for that probably). I can see some 2 bedrooms at Parkway International.

I do see two Disney Vacation Club studios, too. :)

For Williamsburg, I see some Westgate and Williamsburg Plantation 2 bedrooms. For Marriott Manor Club I'm just seeing May weeks (all sizes).

I don't see any MFV summer weeks sitting online.

Keep in mind, this is just what I see sitting online right now.

Not with the studio, but quite a few when using the 1 BR.

Thanks for the reply. So it looks like getting a Marriott 2bd room summer/plat week using plat. studio is going to be very tough. I wonder if anyone has ever gotten a 2bd marriott in plat/summer season using studio.

Getting a 2BR with a studio during peak time will be difficult most of the time outside of flexchange. Studio trade power is usually weak. You can likely get a 2BR in shoulder season, but don't expect prime time very often.

Get up early and check Interval (like 5:30, 6:00 a.m.) during flexchange. If you're flexible with your dates, you'll more than likely get a Marriott 2 bedroom (I'm talking Orlando).

By looking early morning during flex change, I was able to use a Gold Branson studio to pull a New Years week 2 bedroom at Marriott Horizons in Orlando last year. But you can't sleep in and do it. ;)

I just checked with a Feb Beachplace studio and was able to see 11 weeks in June and July at MMC. I also was able to see prime July weeks (2 bd) at Horizons in Orlando as well as Sabal and Royal Palms. I'm shocked that the studio can pull so much!

Perhaps your Feb Beachplace studio is a stronger trader than a branson summer studio? Is your feb week by chance, president's week b/c that is great what you can pull!
