    Hi. We are splitting our holiday between Animal Kingdom Lodge and Grand Floridian. On the day we transfer we have to be out of one by 11am and can’t check in to the next until 3pm. Is there a luggage transfer facility between hotels? If not, will GF time?

    Hi there, Samantha! I’m so glad you stopped by planDisney with such a great question!

    Oh boy, I just love a split stay, so I’m so excited to hear you’ll be enjoying TWO fabulous Disney Resorts Collection hotels during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Each resort has its own unique theming, so it's such a blast to immerse yourself in a completely different experience, each with that famous magic and level of service you come to expect at Walt Disney World. I mean, where else can you go from checking out the animals roaming around the African savannah outside your hotel window to enjoying the fireworks above Cinderella Castle from your hotel balcony across Seven Seas Lagoon, all in one vacation?

    I am so delighted to share that transferring your luggage between resorts during a split stay is as easy as can be! On the day you check out of your first resort, simply bring your belongings down to the Bell Services desk by 11 a.m. and let them know that you will be moving to another Disney Resorts Collection hotel. The helpful Cast Members here will give you a claim ticket and whisk your luggage away on your behalf. Then, with a little bit of Disney magic, your bags will be waiting for you at the Bell Services desk of your second resort later that same day! How great is that? So, no need to worry about schlepping your bags from place to place, Samantha! Instead, you can just focus on having fun. That’s what vacation is all about, after all, isn't it?!

    I just know you will have an absolute blast on your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World. We planDisney Panelists LOVE to talk about our favorite things to do throughout Walt Disney World, so visit again soon if you'd like to hear some of our recommendations!

    Until next time!
