    We are doing a DVC split stay in May 2022. How late is Bell Services open for us to retrieve our bags at the second resort? Hoping to stay at EPCOT till park close and don't want to risk not being able to pick up our bags that will have been transfered

    Welcome Home, Katie!

    A split stay is a wonderful way to experience the magic of more than one Disney Vacation Club Resort on a single vacation. It can also be the best way to stitch together a stay during a popular time to visit. Either way, split stays have their advantages. We enjoy the chance to experience the different dining options at each resort, and the kids always want to compare the pools and waterslides!

    You’ll be happy to know that there is not a closing time for Bell Services. While the number of Cast Members working the desk may be fewer at night, there is always someone available to assist Guests! In addition to helping Guests in situations such as yours, some Guests have late arrivals and early departures. So head off and enjoy all the excitement that Epcot has to offer and you shouldn’t have difficulty retrieving your luggage upon check-in to your second resort.

    Since you’ll be visiting in the Spring, you’ll definitely want to check out the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! You’ll find amazing topiary displays of your favorite Disney characters, live entertainment, and fresh and delicious dishes at the outdoor kitchens! And make sure to head to the France Pavilion to experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. You’ll shrink to the size of a rat as you scurry and scamper through Gusteu’s famous restaurant! Opening next week for Walt Disney World’s Golden Anniversary, it’s sure to be a popular attraction!

    I hope this helps to answer your question, Katie! And feel free to send any additional questions to the Disney Vacation Club Panelists here on planDisney. We always enjoy helping our fellow Disney Vacation Club Members!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
