We've done WDW once, being from the west coast, but we did a split stay between the Grand Floridian and the Animal Kingdom Lodge -- best decision we could've made. WDW has so many beautiful resorts with different themes; we were torn and just couldn't decide which one to stay for the week we were there. Doing a split stay between a monorail resort put us within easy access to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios for the first part of our trip, and then we moved over to AKL where Animal Kingdom was just about 10 minutes away. Besides saving on a lot of travel time, we got to enjoy two completely different themed resorts. This is our plan for all future trips. Good thing we don't have a trip back planned for another few years -- at Deluxe prices, we'll need the time to save up. Anyway, moving between the two resorts was the easiest thing. On the morning we had to leave the GF, we packed everything up, went to the front desk to check out, informed the CM we'd be checking into AKL later that day, and then left our luggage with bell services, which had instructions to deliver all our bags to AKL. We spent the day in the parks, then caught a bus to AKL when we were done. While we were in the parks, we received a text message alert that our room was ready. When we finally got around to checking in, our luggage had already arrived and was brought directly to our room. So easy!
