    I am changing hotels during my stay. Will my first hotel be able to transfer my luggage to my next resort, or will I need to pick it up from bell services & take it to the second hotel? We will be at Hollywood Studios on that day.

    Welcome to planDisney, Raylon!

    How exciting that you'll be staying at two Disney Resort Collection hotels during your vacation. This is known colloquially as a "split stay." I'm actually doing the same thing for my upcoming trip. There's something special about staying in multiple resorts during one trip. It's almost like having two vacations in one. Each hotel has its own unique theming, atmosphere, and features. Yet, they all give you access to magical benefits, such as Early Theme Park Entry and complimentary transportation around the Walt Disney World Resort. You're in for a "practically perfect" time, Raylon.

    You'll also be pleased to know that you can easily have your luggage transferred to your second hotel. Simply stop by Bell Services on your check-out day and let a Cast Member know that you'd like your luggage transferred. They'll then tag your bags, give you a ticket to claim them back, and transfer your luggage to your new hotel. Just note that sometimes this can take a few hours. Since you plan on seizing the day at Disney's Hollywood Studios, that shouldn't be a problem.

    Raylon, you'll arrive just in time for the opening of TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park. Are you ready to "enter the grid"? Make sure you become familiar with the virtual queue system in the build-up to your trip. It's going to be such a brilliant ride!

    I trust you'll have a fabulous time, Raylon. Thanks so much for choosing to be our Guest.
