    Hi there! We are considering a split-stay between the Contemporary and the Swan - is luggage transfer available for this? If not, which Disney resorts provide luggage transfer for split-stays? TY!


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I contacted the Bell Services desk at both the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin myself a while back, and they confirmed that if you take your bags to their Bell Services desk, they can transfer them to a Disney resort hotel, like Disney's Contemporary Resort. They do request that you have the bags to them no later than 11 am so that they can make the appropriate plans. It is also important to know that your bags will not magically appear over at your new home instantly, but you should see them there later that day. 

    You should find that you can take advantage of the luggage transfer perk at any Disney Resorts Collection hotel. I love park hopping, and resort hopping can be fun too! 

    On a personal note, I love the two locations you are considering. One feature of a Walt Disney World vacation that our family prizes highly is what modes of transportation are available. For the Contemporary, the ability to walk to the Magic Kingdom, as well as the thrill of riding the monorail makes for a more enjoyable, and convenient experience. As for the Swan, while the Disney Skyliner is fantastic, it is also nice just to enjoy the boat ride from there to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    When it comes to bag transfers, I always like to let the Bell Services desk know about the move a day or two in advance. They will appreciate it, and it will streamline getting your bags from Point A to Point B.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
