    We are staying at the Dolphin for part of our stay and then transferring to Grand Floridian. Will they transfer our bags there for us? Also, does the Dolphin get all the early entry/extra hours benefits of other disney resorts?

    Howdy, Shannon! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Oh boy, Shannon! How lucky are you to be staying at two super fabulous resorts on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation?! While it’s been a while since my last visit to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I had the pleasure of staying at Walt Disney World Dolphin earlier this year and had such a blast! You just can’t beat the convenience of being within walking distance from both EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. So, you’re in for such a treat!

    Walt Disney World Dolphin is not a part of the Disney Resorts Collection, so Bell Services will not be able to transfer your luggage as you head over to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. While I’m sure this isn’t the news you were hoping for, it’s actually pretty easy to move your belongings over to your second resort using a ride share service like Lyft, or even the awesome Minnie Van Service, which is set to return sometime this summer.

    When you’re ready to head over to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, just head down to the main entrance of your hotel with your luggage and request your ride via the mobile app for your preferred rideshare service. The drive is super short (only about 10 minutes door to door), and it usually takes only a few minutes for your driver to arrive. So, this is the fastest and easiest way to move your belongings over to your second resort. 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!

    I hope my answer has been helpful and that you have a truly magical time on your upcoming vacation! Please be sure to visit us again with any other questions you may have!

    Until next time!
