    Looking to book a 5 night stay. How do I go about splitting my stay between two resorts?

    Hi Matt! Welcome to planDisney! 

    You have come to the right place to get answers about Disney Resorts! For me, I enjoy the resort stay just as much as the theme parks themselves. I've actually done "resort-only stays" on multiple occasions and have really enjoyed each of those trips. There are many vacations when we are on the go all too much, such as trying to get to the parks early in the morning and not returning until well after the nighttime firework display. Each of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels has a ton to offer in dining, recreation, and also the vast range of amenities. You often miss out on many of these benefits unless you allow yourself the time to do so.

    Booking a split-stay is a great way to have two different experiences on the same trip. My family recently stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort at the beginning of our stay, then switched to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge for the remainder. Each resort could not be more opposite of the other, which is why we loved your vacation. On one end, we were within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom Park and had access to the resort monorail to transfer us from resort to resort if desired. On the other end, we had a view of a savanna outside of our window with giraffes and zebras gingerly exploring their environment. 

    In order to book a stay at two different resorts, you will need to make two separate reservations. Once your reservations are made, you will be able to link each one to your My Disney Experience account. It will seem as if it is all one long stay, but in fact, there will be two different reservation numbers linked to each one. Remember, Disney always makes things as easy as can be. On your transfer day to the second resort, simply bring your luggage to bell services and they will transfer them to the next resort you are staying at. Once you arrive there and get settled, give a call down to bell services and they will bring your luggage to your new room.

    Matt, I hope you have a great time in the planning stages of your Walt Disney World Resort stay! If you need any recommendations on which resorts to decide on, find me again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
