    Any advice on staying at two different WDW hotels during your vacation? We planned to stay at the Beach Club Villas for 4 nights, then at the Carribean Beach for 2 nights. Traveling with 2yr old that will need nap. How do u think transfer will be?

    Hi Celeste!

    I know many guests who resort hop all the time.  However, I suggest you go to the Caribbean Beach Resort first and then go to the Beach Club Villas.  That's really because the Beach Club is a fabulous resort; it's my second or third favorite resort at Walt Disney World (I flip between the Polynesian and the Beach Club).  Guests who stay in one resort and then hop to another for a few nights always tell me that it is better to go from a Value or Moderate Resort to a Deluxe and not the other way around; that way you end your vacation on a high note.

    With regards to transferring from one resort to another, you can give your luggage to Bell Services at your first resort and ask them to deliver the luggage to your second resort.  Just know that it can take several hours.  Thus if you actually need something, you should bring it along with you in a day bag.  Also, you will have to check out of the first resort by 11 am (though you can try for late check-out) and may not get into your new room until late in the afternoon (3 pm or 4 pm) so keep that in mind.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
