    I am doing a split stay in Jan 2023. The first 1/2 is in All Star Movies (1/11-1/16). The second half is at the Polynesian (1/16-1/22). For my 60 day out reservation window, is it treated as 2 separate reservations? Or can I book for the whole trip?

    Hi there, Lisa. Welcome to planDisney

    Lisa, I can't think of a better way to kick off a new year than with a trip to Walt Disney World. That is going to be so much fun! Also, the resorts that you've picked out are just perfect. Disney's All-Star Movies Resort is my favorite in the value category and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is my favorite in the deluxe category. Great picks! 

    Even though it is one long trip for you, a split stay is considered two different reservations. With that, you'll need to make advanced dining reservations two different times. One 60 days prior to your Disney's All-Star Movies Resort check-in day and then again 60 days prior to your Disney's Polynesian Village Resort check-in day. This can be a bit of a hassle but I actually like it because if you aren't able to get a reservation somewhere you really want, you get another try at it. 

    One fun thing I like to do when I am staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is to grab a sip and a snack at the Tambu Lounge. Tambu Lounge is located upstairs right outside of 'Ohana. They serve cocktails, mocktails and appetizers from the restaurant. My family and I love to go there and get the 'Ohana pot stickers and noodles. Then, for dessert, we all share the 'Ohana bread pudding. It's great because it's less expensive and you don't need a reservation. Plus, the Cast Members that work there are fabulous and the bar/lounge has a great view of the fireworks over Magic Kingdom Park. 

    I hope this helps you plan, Lisa. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Good luck!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
