    Hi! Booked for 8 nights in Oct & was interested in doing a split stay. I have a MYW package. If I were to do a split stay, would I have to have 2 separate packages, or can I just switch hotels? I don't want to pay extra for park tickets by switching!

    Hey Ashley-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. An eight day trip to Walt Disney World Resort is just paradise. You will have plenty of time to enjoy the theme parks, recreation, nightlife and resort activities during you stay. You may split your Magic Your Way Vacation Package between resorts because it is … Magic Your Way.

    With a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, you may purchase theme park tickets for up to 10 days per package. I would suggest you tie the ticket to your first vacation package. This will keep the ticket cost per day the lowest. Your second vacation package should just be resort only.

    A magical service to split stayers is that Walt Disney World Cast Members are happy to transfer your luggage to your second resort. You will take your items to the luggage department at Resort A and they will be glad to transfer them to Resort B. Just travel to the new resort and check-in. At that time you may make arrangements with them to have your items brought to your new room.The transfer time could be 30 minutes to several hours. If you are concerned, you may take a taxi with your luggage over to the second resort to check-in.

    The only challenge with a split stay aside from packing is a Disney Dining Plan because the meal credits are tied to the specific resort. This can make dining without losing credits complicated. My co-panelist Erin has some great insight on this topic.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation at two pixie-dusted locations at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
