    Doing a split stay with 2 reservations, 2 meal plans--question is will the second meal plan be available on our magic bands before we physically check in or does that need to be done at second hotel? Not planning to checkin until pm, help! Thank you!

    Hi Marianne!

    Wow, it is so cool that you get to experience two Walt Disney World Resorts during your next vacation!  It is not really a hassle to move to a different Walt Disney World Resort during your vacation. I have done this very thing multiple times and it is quick and easy. Disney treats each stay at a Walt Disney World Resort as a separate Walt Disney World vacation as far as the Disney Dining Plan is concerned.  So if you have purchased a Disney Dining Plan for both Walt Disney World Resort stays, then the Dining Credits from your first Resort will expire at midnight on your check out day from the first Resort so be sure to use them all up before then.  You will not receive your Dining Credits for the second Resort until you check in to that Resort.  Disney treats a split stay as two separate vacations. Also Disney will transfer your luggage from the first resort that you are staying at to the next one for free. Just take your luggage to bell services or luggage services the morning that you check out of your first resort and give them your name and the name of the Walt Disney World Resort where you are transferring to. You can have all your luggage transferred while you go to a Park with only a backpack or small bag and then check into your second Resort after check in time. After you check in to the second resort you can pick up your luggage at that Resort's Bell Services or have them deliver it to your room. You do not have to wait until after 3:00 pm to do this. You can have Disney transfer your bags anytime on the day of check out from the first Walt DIsney World Resort. Keep in mind that it will take at least 3 to 6 hours for your bags to be transferred to the next Walt Disney World Resort so make sure that you have what you need for the day with you in a bag or backpack.

    I hope that you have a magical trip and a comfy stay in two great Walt Disney World Resorts!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
