    Hi, We’re planning for a split stay on our next trip at 2 different WDW hotels (first time!). Will I be able to book fast passes and dining plans together for the whole trip at the start of the first reservation? Thanks for your help!

    Hi Lesli,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine the happiness in your household as you make plans for a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    In October I did a split stay and was able to make Fast Pass+ selections and advanced dining reservations for my entire trip at the same time. As long as you have valid theme park tickets for the length of your stay, your plans should be seamless.

    On my last split stay trip, when I checked out of my first resort hotel, I left my bags at the bell services desk and asked them to transfer them to the new resort. I then went and visited a theme park for the day. When I arrived at the new resort hotel, I just picked up my bags at the bell services desk, then stopped by the front desk to check-in to the resort. 

    If you are making dining plans with a group, make sure you have everyone connected to your My Disney Experience Account through your "My Family & Friends List." When I travel with a group, we always share plans. I especially love being able to see everyone's PhotoPass photos - we always laugh at the crazy poses we do on certain rides - our Twilight Zone Tower of Terror photos have to be coordinated!

    Lesli, I am sending a little extra pixie dust your way trusting that your split stay will bring lots of fun and laughter!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
