    What is the best way to transfer resorts with luggage, five adults and an infant? We would want to keep our luggage with us as we need it when we arrive at the next resort!

    Hi, Ashley! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I totally understand the need to keep your luggage close when transferring from a Disney Resort hotel to another. Sometimes you want to change before a nighttime event like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party or take a shower before the next adventure. In those cases, keeping the luggage handy is a great strategy!

    In your case, it sounds like a Minnie Van is the perfect answer. They are cute, spacious, can accommodate up to 6 Guests and are equipped with two car seats for the little ones. You can request your Minnie Van through the Lyft app and let the magic Cast Members take you to your next Disney Resort hotel!

    To minimize the effort of personally transferring the luggage for five adults and an infant, you can also combine the Minnie Vans with the complimentary luggage transfers offered by the Walt Disney World Resort. The secret, in this case, is to pack a light suitcase that carries all you need for that evening and let Bell Services transfer the rest of your luggage. When I do that, I think of that suitcase as my "carry-on" piece of luggage. It's great to travel light so that I don't have to drag heavy pieces across the hallways!

    If more questions pop up before your trip, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley! We love to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
