    Hubby & I will be going to WDW Dec '18. We're torn between AK and Contemporary. We are thinking of splitting the stay. How smooth is splitting a stay? Resort preferences? festivities we should do?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Helaine, we thank you for consulting us!

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the Holiday season is ever so magical, offering many festivities, such as Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party - that will leave you with ever-lasting memories for years to come, congratulations!

    Splitting a stay between Disney Resort hotels is like two separate vacations in one because of the different theming, and it’s really easy to do. You will require two separate package reservations that align, but that’s done all the time by many Guests, so the process is seamless. Just be sure to contact Bell Services for the transport of your luggage and then head over to your next Disney Resort hotel with our whimsical Minnie Van service (fee applies). It’s that easy and a whole lot of fun!

    I love the over-the-top, authentic theming of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – straight from Africa, minutes away from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, followed by a stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort – straight into the future, and a quick walk or scenic Monorail ride to Magic Kingdom Park – with all the unique benefits and magical experiences, what a vacation that will be!

    Happy Disney Holidays and Wishes!
