    Considering a stay at the Contemporary. Usually arrive late afternoon. To save $ we thought about staying the first night in a value hotel & the remainder at the Contemp. What probs would we have w/a package deal & ground transportation to/from air

    Hi Thomas,

    I like your thinking to save the money on the first night to stay at a Disney Value Resort and then transfer to the Contemporary Resort for the rest of your vacation.

    You will be advised to make two reservations - one for the first night and one for the remainder of the trip. This is a common request so the cast members at 1-407-WDISNEY can assist you making this request. They will not book Magical Express until the last day of your second reservation.

    The only drawback with two reservations is that you will need to check in twice. However, this is simple. Call bell services at the first resort and have them send your luggage to the Contemporary. When you check in over there (and it can be after a day of touring), have the front desk call bell services bring your luggage up to your room.

    I would recommend that if you were looking at adding the Disney Dining Plan that you only add it for the Contemporary portion as any remaining meals or snacks can not be rolled to the second reservation.

    Have a magical vacation!
