    I will be staying the first night a a value resort and then the rest of my stay will be at The Animal Kingdom Lodge. Can bell service take our luggage from the value resort to Animal Kingdom Lodge?

    Hello Christy! Welcome to planDisney! Wow! A split stay is such a great way to enjoy all that the Walt Disney World Resort hotels have to offer!

    The Walt Disney World Resort wants to make your stay as magical (and convenient) as possible! Complimentary luggage transfer between Walt Disney World Resort hotels is available! Upon check-in at your first resort, you should notify Bell Services of the date that you will be transferred to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (great resort choice!) They will let you know the arrangements for transferring your luggage. 

    I have used Bell Services many times during my visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I have had them hold my luggage when we arrive early (before our room is ready) so we can get to the parks right away. I’ve also had them hold our luggage after we check out of our room, but still want to enjoy some time in the parks or at the resort hotel. I am always sure to tip the Cast Members working at Bell Services after they have transferred or held my luggage for me.

    I hope this information is helpful, Christy! Come on back to planDisney with any additional questions! We're happy to help!

    Happy Planning!
