    Thinking of splitting our stay, 2N @ ASMusic and 5N @ POR-Royal rooms. Does switching add stress to a trip? Does it make your trip feel shorter? Would have a room discount and a 7 day/ no hopper ticket for DH, DD7, DD3 and me. Pros/cons? Thank you:)

    Howdy Connie!!  Disney makes resort transfers a simple and seamless process. If you book your vacation with a split stay, be sure to speak with a Cast Member about your Magic My Way Package.  You will have 2 separate reservations which may impact your planning.
    Moving from one resort to the next is very easy. When you are ready to check-out of Disney's All-Star Music Resort, contact the Bell Stand and let them know you need your luggage transferred to Disney's Port Orleans Resort. They will collect your items and give you a receipt. Your luggage will be transferred to your new resort and delivered that afternoon. Be sure you keep items you will need that day with you. Once you give your items to the Cast Member to be transferred, you will not have access to your luggage again until it is delivered to your villa. We typically pack a collapsible cooler bag and freezer packs if we know we will need to move cold items. While Disney does offer cold storage at the resorts, you will need a way to keep cold items cold during the transfer.

    One very important note: do not close your account when you change resorts. Simply depart and go enjoy your day! If you close your account, you will not be able to do a room charge or finish using your Disney Dining Plan entitlements from your initial Dining Plan (if applicable). If you are going to need the Dining Plan entitlements from the second resort on the day of your transfer, you will need to check-in at the new resort so they can activate your reservation.

    We love doing split stays. It gives us the ability to enjoy the amenities and locations of multiple resorts and enhances our vacation.

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your vacation.  Have a magical day!
