    We are changing resorts half way through our trip, if we leave our bags in the room will WDW move our bags to the new resort while we're at a park? Or do we have to move before we go?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amelia. We're glad to see you again!

     I'm so excited to hear you have a "split-stay" planned for your upcoming vacation. A split-stay allows you to experience the unique atmosphere and amenities of two (or more!) incredible Walt Disney World Resort hotels in a single vacation. As with most things, the friendly Cast Members make transferring your luggage from one Resort hotel to the next super easy! On the day you check-out of your first hotel, you can call Bell Services and arrange for a luggage pick-up from your room, or you can stop by the desk in the lobby and drop off your bags on your way out. They will gladly make sure your bags arrive at your next Resort hotel while you're out enjoying an adventure in the theme parks! When you arrive at your second hotel, you can pick up your bags from the Bell Services desk, or call from your room to request a delivery. While tipping is certainly not required, I do like to tip in these instances. Keep in mind that a luggage transfer can take several hours. If there's a personal item you'll need before early afternoon on the day of your transfer, I suggest keeping it with you in your purse or backpack while you're in the theme parks.

     I see that one of your stays will be at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, my most favorite Resort hotel! Be sure to take advantage of some of the amazing experiences available to Guests, like Night Vision Animal Viewing. Such fun! If you're looking for an unforgettable and positively delicious meal, look no further than Sanaa at Kidani Village. It's a must-visit for my family, and it's just a short walk away from Jambo House.

     Wishing you a magical vacation, Amelia!
