    For split stays, will Disney deliver to the Dolphin Hotel (from Art of Animation) or must the hotel be a specific type of resort hotel? Thank you!

    Hi Annemarie! Welcome to planDisney! I’m so happy to be able to help you today.

    Oh my goodness, your Walt Disney World vacation is now officially less than one month away! Woo hoo! You must be so pumped to get to enjoy the incredible EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! You are in for such a treat with live entertainment, food, and so much more! But, let's not forget that The World's Most Magical Celebration in honor of Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary is still in full swing! So, how lucky are you to be able to enjoy two fabulous events in one trip? I have to admit, I'm more than a little jealous, so let’s get to your question before I log on to the Walt Disney World website right now and book an impulse trip!

    A split stay is such a fabulous way to enjoy even more of what Walt Disney World has to offer. There are so many fabulous resorts to choose from, each with its own unique theme and Guest experience, so you’re so smart to be visiting more than one during your upcoming vacation! When staying at two Disney Resorts Collection hotels, the Bell Services team will move your luggage between resorts for you, free of charge! Unfortunately, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is not a part of the Disney Resorts Collection, so Bell Services will not be able to transfer your luggage here after your stay at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

    While I know that may not be the answer you were hoping for, the good news is that it’s pretty easy to move your belongings to your second resort using a ride-share service like Lyft. You can also use the awesome Minnie Van Service, which just recently returned to Walt Disney World this summer! The drive between the two resorts is a short seven minutes, so I recommend heading down to the main entrance of your hotel with your luggage after you have checked out. Then, you can request your ride via the mobile app for your preferred rideshare service and be at Walt Disney World Swan Hotel to drop off your luggage before you know it! While there is a cost associated with using a ride-share service, in my experience, the price is super reasonable, making it well worth the convenience!

    Now, let’s get back to the important stuff - FOOD! As I’m sure you know, EPCOT's festivals are famous for the culinary creations from the many outdoor kitchens, but have you heard about the incredible live music? The Eat to the Beat Concert Series is sure to get you moving and grooving, with fantastic artists scheduled to perform throughout the festival. Make sure to keep an eye on your My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date concert showtimes so you don't miss out on the fun!

    I do hope this answer has been helpful to you! You are visiting during such a wonderful time with so much to do and see at Walt Disney World! So, please visit us again soon if you have any questions or want to hear some of our recommendations. We would love to help make your vacation as magical as possible!

    Bye for now!
