    We've done it twice now with no problems. First was AKV - POR the next time was AKV - BWV. We have a lot of luggage so I make sure the second stay we have cases packed just for that part and don't really need to open he rest. Disney have always taken care of our luggage, we just use the changeover day to spend time at the new resort but if you want o go anywhere that's fine you just call bell services when you arrive back and they deliver your luggage to your room. I as worried it was going to be hassle but it really hasn't been for us and as we stay for quite a few nights its nice to make the most of two resorts

    Done it twice last year, we were at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel and Spa (Downtown Disney) moved to Universal Studios On-Site resort the Royal Pacific Resort and on our wedding day I had the hotel transfer our bags to the Hard Rock Hotel free of charge (just a tip for the fella that collected/delivered our bags) and when we checked into the Hard Rock, they gave us our key, and within a few minutes our bags came up.

    It wasn't too bad but I wouldn't stress too much as you can always check in early and leave your bags at the concierge if the room isn't ready.

    But it's worth it to reconn out the hotels you may stay at in the near future. We decided the Royal Pacific Resort is our hotel. Loved it the last time, so we will return again.

    We did a split stay once. It was one of our first visits to WDW (a surprise visit for Herself's birthday). I booked through a travel agent (shows you how long ago it was) and we couldn't get all our days at the Beach Club so we stayed there for most of the days, and finished up the last three at All Stars.

    It went very well! We left everything to Disney and just went on our merry way on the day of transfer. I had been a little worried about the differences between the two resorts, but it wasn't a problem. Moving to All Stars from the Beach Club was simply a different perspective, a different vibe. It was two different kinds of fun!

    I would say that splitting stays should encompass several days at each resort. Moving for an overnight would be more trouble than it's worth to me.

    With check in at 4 and out at 11, a one night stay really doesn't encompass much more than the night.






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    You raise a very good point, and one I've been considering for several days. For us, the split would be 4/4 - 4 nights at Pop and 4 nights at Beach Club (switching over on the boys birthday). Do you think that's enough to get a proper "feel" for the resort?

    I think that's a good amount of time. Just make sure you plan to hang out at the resort. We spent 2 nights there last Labor Day. It's awesome.

    Yes, we will definitely want to spend a considerable amount of time at the resort, after all "I've waited my whole life for this!" :wink:

    You could always go back and stay there again for your honeymoon









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    You can't blame a girl for trying
