    My dad and I are planning a trip to WDW in October. We have a WDW travel guide that recommends splitting nights between hotels to lower the trip cost. We'd like to do this with the Contemporary and the All Star Movies resorts. Is this still possible?

    Hi John!

    You can always stay in multiple hotels on your trip!  Just know that you will have to check out of one and check into the other.  Where there is usually a problem or some confusion concerns the Disney Dining Plan.  If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you will lose all of your credits from the first hotel visit (assuming you have any left) on the day you check out of your first hotel; i.e. it won't "carry over" to the days when you are in the second hotel!

    If you do decide to do this, I recommend staying at the All Star Movies first and then checking into the Contemporary.  I just think it's always better to "move up" so that you won't be disappointed.  So stay in a Value Resort and then switch to a Moderate, or like in your case, go from Value to Deluxe!

    By the way, you can ask Disney to transfer your luggage from one hotel to the next!  Just be prepared for it to take a significant part of the day for it to show up in your new hotel!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
