I almost always do split stays! My rule of thumb is that I have to be making a lateral move or upgrading to a better property.

Not saying anything against AKL, but YC would be considered a superior property, especially if you're moving from non-Club Level at AKL to Club Level at another deluxe resort.

Having said that, YMMV. There's no right or wrong -- it's what will work for your family!

I do it for the opportunity to have 2 resort experiences in 1 trip. The resorts are a huge part of the vacation experience for me. I only travel with carry-ons so I never have a lot to pack up.

I agree with Rachel Tori - if I have a mod I do that part of the split 1st - so I don't feel like I'm "downgrading" at the end of my trip.

Thanks. I'm just thinking with my AP discount it makes more sense to stay delux except 1 st night we won't land until 8pm.
So either 1 night POR then head to YC CL for 7 nights
Or do a split with AKL then YC CL

I'm a splitter. And a resort changer! I feel your pain! I'm trying to rent points for the 1st time for the AKV portion of our stay in March - and it scares me that I'll be locked in with points- no changing or cancelling!

For Sunrise Safari - yes, you need park tickets. The CMs in the Club Lounge will scan them first thing in the morning before you even board the "Sunrise Safari" bus for AK.

We're just back home tonight. We were in room 4268 at Jambo House (Sunset Savannah). I'll post pictures ASAP.

Best trip EVER!!!

But, we still have to sadly say... AKL - BEST resort. WORST bus service.

Example of the bus service: yesterday we waited over an HOUR for a bus to Animal Kingdom. And that was with a lady working the bus stop telling us she had called for a bus. After about 30 minutes she walked down to the last bus stop & never came back.

That should never happen when you're going to AK. It's right across the street!!!!!!!!!!
