    Hello Fay! Welcome to planDisney!

    There's nothing better than spending your entire vacation at Walt Disney World Resort in one of their Disney Resorts Collection hotels unless, of course, you're spending it in TWO of Disney's magical Resorts Collection hotels!  Because each and every Resort has such unique theming, dining options, and amenities, moving from one to another can really make you feel like you're in "a whole new world"!

    There are so many benefits to staying on Disney property, everyone's favorite being the extra time Guests of these Resorts are able to spend within the Theme Parks.  With Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours you and your party can really take advantage of lower wait times on rides and attractions if you get up with the sun and plan your evenings correctly! You'll be happy to know that Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts are able to take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on both the day they check in to the Resort as well as the day they check out.  That means that even once your bags have been transferred by the lovely Cast Members in Bell Services, you'll still be able to stay out late and enjoy all your favorite attractions in the dark.  

    If you've never done a split-stay before, just note that sometimes it does take a little time for your luggage to be transferred, so take anything you may need in the meantime.  Once, my family and I forgot to take my toddler's "blankie" during the move.  Let's just say nap time did not go as well as planned! 

    Make sure to take advantage of spending some time relaxing throughout your busy days in the Parks.  During the hottest part of the day, we tend to return to our Resort for a swim and rest, getting us recharged and ready to take on the excitement of watching Harmonious or Disney Enchantment and closing down the Parks for the night.

    Enjoy every magical moment!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
