    When I called Disney and mentioned a split stay today, I was told that there is no guarantee that Bell Services would be able or willing to transfer my luggage to the second Disney resort. Is that service no longer typically available?

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. My family and I have enjoyed several split stays at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Bell Services has transferred our luggage for us during those stays unless we decided to move our luggage ourselves. 
    I spoke to a Cast Member to find out the current policy on luggage transfers and I have good news. As long as you are moving from one Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to another, Bell Services will transfer your luggage for you. Please remember there are several hotels on or near Walt Disney World Resort property but they are not official Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, and the Disney Springs Area Hotels would fall into this category. 
    To put your mind at ease, I would confirm with Bell Services when you check-in to your resort. My one additional recommendation for split stays would be to bring an extra reusable shopping bag from home. During our first stay, we accumulated several small things and it was nice to have a smaller bag to put them in for the move. 
    Karen, thank you again for visiting us. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
