    We are staying the first night of our trip at AOA and then switching over to Gran Destino. How do we go about getting our luggage sent over to GD from AOA? Thanks!

    Hiya Shannon!

    By opting for a split stay between two fabulous Disney Resort hotels, you're speaking to my heart! I absolutely LOVE exploring Disney Resort hotels and all they have to offer. Because of this, I usually book a split stay myself!

    You're going to have a fabulous time staying at both Resort hotels. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is adorably themed with larger-than-life characters from classic favorites, and the ease of the Disney Skyliner transporting Guests to and from EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios is amazing! The Spanish, Mexican, and Southwest American influences with lush grounds make Disney's Coronado Springs Resort's Gran Destino Tower one of my favorite resorts, as it makes me feel instantly relaxed! I hope you check out Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago. It has scrumptious dining options!

    Shannon, here I am, rambling on about the resorts without answering your question! You won't need to worry about your luggage because Bell Services will gladly transfer it to your next Disney Resort hotel. 

    On the morning of check-out, before noon, you'll want to take your luggage to Bell Services at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and let them know you're transferring to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort's Gran Destino Tower. They will hand you a tag with the total number of bags being moved and will take care of the rest. One thing to note is that luggage transfers may take a few hours, so keep anything you need during the day on hand, such as medications, your tickets, etc.

    Then, you're free to go about your day as planned! Once your room is ready at Gran Destino Tower, let Bell Services there know you're ready for your luggage to be brought up to your room! 

    Ready for more awesome news? In case you're also a fan of Resort refillable mugs like I am, these are valid for your entire length of stay, for up to 14 days. The mug will work even with your split stay!

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Shannon!
