    Hi, I'm planning a stay and splitting the stay between two Disney Resorts. I love using Magic Bands for my daily purchases and having the charges included with my room charges. On the day that I change to the new resort, will I be able to do this?

    Hiya Melissa and welcome to planDisney!

    A split stay is such a lovely way to enjoy the Walt Disney World Resort. Getting to experience the magic from multiple points of view never gets old. And each Disney Resorts Collection hotel has its own brilliant theming to keep you occupied. I always have such a good time at the hotels that I almost forget to go into the theme parks! 

    Anybody who's ever been with me to the Walt Disney World Resort knows that tapping that MagicBand is a way of life for me. It's definitely more thrilling than swiping a credit card and takes my mind off the damage I'm doing to my bank account. Now when you're switching your resorts, of course, one would wonder if MagicBands can keep up with your change in locations. Well, I'm happy to tell you, they can! The general rule when staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is that you're a Guest as soon as it's your arrival day. So even between hotels, you're still covered.

    Pro-tip: The day you move from one home to the next, take your luggage down to the Bell Services Desk in the lobby of your first hotel. Let them know you'll be moving on to your next destination and would like your bags to be transferred. That way someone else can do the luggage lugging and you can go and have a lovely lunch at Disney Springs. At least that's what I like to do!

    Melissa, tap that MagicBand as many times as your budget will allow. And if you think of any other questions, please come back and ask me! I'm a little better at thinking of things to purchase than I care to admit.

    Happy planning!
