    I am looking to visit Walt Disney World during the summer but want to do a split stay between the Grand Floridian and Coronado Springs. Do I need to make both reservations separately or is there a way to make them both at the same time?

    Welcome to planDisney Joseph!

    Planning a split stay between Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is a fantastic way to experience the unique themes and amenities of two different Walt Disney World Resort hotels during your summer visit. It’s like getting two distinct Disney vacations in one!

    When booking your accommodations, you have a couple of options on how to manage your reservations for a split stay. While the process may initially seem like it requires separate bookings for each resort, there’s a streamlined way to handle it:

    1. Online Direct Booking: If you’re making your reservations online through the Walt Disney World website, you will need to book each hotel stay separately. This means you’ll complete the reservation process for your stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa first, and then start a new reservation for Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. While this method involves two distinct bookings, it’s straightforward and allows you to customize each part of your stay according to your preferences for room type, views, and any special requests at each hotel.

    2. Phone Reservation: For a more seamless experience, you can call Walt Disney World Resort reservations directly at (407) 934-7639. A Cast Member can assist you in booking both parts of your split stay in one phone call. This method provides the added benefit of personalized service, as the Cast Member can help ensure that your transition from one hotel to the other is smooth, and they can also note any room preferences or special requests you have for both resorts.

    Regardless of how you book, Disney makes the process of moving between resorts relatively effortless. On the day you switch from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Bell Services can transfer your luggage between the resorts, allowing you to enjoy the parks or resort amenities without worrying about your belongings. Just drop your luggage off with Bell Services in the morning, and they will handle the rest. Your luggage will be waiting for you at your new resort later in the day.

    Booking your split stay gives you the unique advantage of experiencing the luxury and Victorian elegance of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and then transitioning to the vibrant, Spanish-colonial inspired theme at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the diverse atmospheres and dining options each resort offers.
