Thinking about staying at two different resorts 3 nights at one 4 nights at another. Anyone done this, what's the pros and cons?

We do this every time,we like so many different ones and like to try them all out sometimes it's a bit much but if you tell bell services they will transfer you luggage for you and it's a great way to get a feel of resorts you like or not:) - tracsant  1127.2 #2 11:41AM
Cool! - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 12:11PM
I think you need to pick out of a hat!! - Ariel42  262.9 #26 11:43AM
Am I driving you crazy? I thought about the drawing out of a hat, LOL! Great minds . . . . - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 12:11PM
No you are not driving me crazy!! Lol!! - Ariel42  262.9 #26 1:21PM
In my mind I keep telling myself 'just pick already'. You'd think it was the only trip I was ever going to make to WDW, lol. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 2:04PM
I feel like it might be overwhelming to change hotels mid trip, but it could also be exciting, and a great way to check out different places. If the hotels will move your luggage for you, even better!! I say if your family is ok with it, I don't see why you shouldn't give it a try!! - ncjal  233.9 #32 11:57AM
I read others do it, so thought, why not? We are staying just barely long enough to make it worth while. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 12:14PM
Well I think is a good idea this year I'm doing 2 nights in Saratoga springs and 1night in bay lake theme park view. I would stay more but ill b also going to the Disney dream cruise for 3 nights 4days. - yessy  210.6 #38 12:15PM
We usually stay at 2 different resorts to try more of them out. Like others said, they can move your bags for you. The only con if you will have the dining plan is that you will need to go to the new resort to pick up the new key to the world cards and the meals from the 1st resort will expire at midnight on the old cards. - Andrea84  689.1 #8 12:20PM
Looks like we are going to book with the 30% off, and not the free dining plan. I haven't seen how much the dining plan is yet, so not sure whether I'll do that or not. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 1:04PM
We did this the year animal kingdom lodge opened. We stayed at hard rock hotel at universal, anim king lg, and valu resort it was great but we were traveling by our selves no grand kids on this trip. - mmddgp  583.0 #10 12:31PM
It seems like a lot of people do it. If bell hop will transfer your luggage, why not? You just go back to a different room. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #557 12:39PM
True! - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 1:05PM
Oh we do this from pop to polynesian. We just get the Tahiti at poly bcuz it's close to a side parking lot for the luggage. And pack a clothes suitcase just for pop and another just for poly. - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #66 1:04PM
LOL my family has done this multiple times - not by choice, but becaus the hotel would only have open rooms for say, 4 out of the 10 days were there so we had to pack up and go to a new hotel. But it kind of sucks because you can't take EVERYTHIG out of your luggage since you'll be packing it all up in a few days , and also , your luggage usually takes time to get to your next hotel AND you have to wait til your rooms ready :/ a pro is that it's a curve ball in your vacation so it may make it a little exciting and interesting! - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #93 2:28PM
Hmmm. . . Didn't think about packing up, yuck. I did wonder how we'd move with the lapse in time between check out and check in. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 2:39PM
That whole packing thing is why I wouldn't want to do this. I dread that part of vacation. - Lelundrial  555.6 #332 2:48PM
Me too, I'm not so sure now. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 2:49PM
For us the check in time (3 or 4?) Worked good bcuz we go in August so by that time r hot and ready for a break. So we leave the park at 2 and sometes u can get in ur room earlier. Last yr I think we got in the poly at 2. - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #66 4:11PM
What we did is pack somewhat seperatly. One bag for one hotel and anther for the other and toiletries in their own bag. It wasn't so bad but we were only traveling with adults no kids - mmddgp  583.0 #10 5:32PM
The only con is if the second isn't as nice as the first . So choose wisely !!!!!! - skcanfield  491.5 #16 2:47PM
Lol, I thought about this. - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 2:48PM
Personally, I wouldn't want to take all that time in the middle of my trip to pack, check out of one hotel, and check into another. Especially if you're only going for a week! What happened to the BC? Have you listed the pros/cons of each option? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  985.3 #3 4:56PM
I know, I'm not sure about the moving thing. I haven't listed pros and cons, I'm not sure their would be any cons for any resort :) But it is a great suggestion, I'll make a list of why we want to stay at each resort :) - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 5:24PM
You are great at this problem solving thing, putting everything into perspective and making suggestions. You should be a counselor or travel agent! - DizneyGirl  717.0 #7 5:25PM
Hmmm, travel agent... Been there, done that! Yes, my left brained thinking can come in handy! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  985.3 #3 5:46PM
We did this last year and the worst part was packing everything up. The nice thing was experiencing two resorts. - disneycm  629.2 #9 6:48PM
I think that's a great idea! It'll give you the opportunity to experience everything that both resorts have to offer! However, when staying at any Disney resort, you can go to any other resort and still experience everything there is to offer without having to change the resort that you are staying at. :) - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #49 7:07PM
We did it, but packing in the middle was a hassle and to have to go through the check in Process again and then you have to go and get the park tickets transferred from your original room key onto the second room key. But if it's your only chance to try multiple hotels the bell service does make it convienent, they picked up everything including our waters, snacks, etc. - margustafson  16.6 #7348 7:50PM
