    Regarding changing resorts, I know I am able use resort amenities ahead of check in time and after check out time. Does that mean that on the day that I change resorts I will have access to the pool and amenities at both the old and new resort?

    Hi, Lindsey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel from your neighbor to the south. 

    I love "split-stays" between Walt Disney World® Resort hotels! With each resort having its own unique theming and ambience, it's so fun being able to have multiple resort experiences during one vacation. I also just returned from a split-stay at Walt Disney World® Resort, so I am happy to be answering your question. 

    On your transfer day, you will have access to the amenities of both resorts. However, if you are staying at a deluxe level resort with pool rights reserved exclusively for guests of that resort, once you've official arrived and checked into your new resort, your MagicBand will no longer work at the pool gate of your old resort. If you're staying at moderate or value resorts, you can go between the two as you'd like. I'd love to know where you are staying so I can provide even more detailed information on helping you to plan a smooth transition. 

    Also, once you leave your room by the 11:00am check-out time, Bell Services will transfer all your luggage to your new resort for you! They just don't guarantee it's availability at your new location until after 3pm, so make sure you keep a day bag with you. 

    I hope this is helpful! A good number of my vacations involve split-stays, so please let me know if you should have any additional questions.
