I agree a key aspect to making it owrk is packing the right way.

We kept packing wrong, or needing to pack differently for different parts of our recent trip, and that added time.

I've previously been solidly in the AWESOME camp, but this last trip was seriously annoying.

We originally had MIL traveling with us and she needed to get in early, so we got in late on the 5th, stayed at POR until the 7th. Went to the 3 night Bahamas cruise. Went to Kidani for 3 nights. SSR for 3 nights. VWL for 3 nights.

I knew this was going to be challenging, and it was even more so because we were all just exhausted. Still haven't worked out the whole jet lag thing, sadly. Then just as the relaxing part of the land stay should have kicked in at SSR, we had a room apparently coated in mildew, and had to move one more time. (room 1135...if anyone is given it and it is still mildewy, I've gone a bone to pick with the housekeeping manager!) The stress of that, our exhaustion, the fact that family had arrived that night so it wasn't 3 people moving but 7, and not to mention the physical and mental effects mildew and mold has on me (it really messed me up), just messed us up. And THEN we had repeated and continual issues with the checkin process, being part of a glitch, and then it taking two hours and two managers (one of whom was snotty) to put charging on our cards (so that we could access the compensation they had put on our account, of all ridiculous things to have a problem with).

Two moves is our max going forward. We'll pay the expensive room in cash or points just for the sheer luxury of waking up where we will be. It was too many.

Can we then have the remaining days transfered to our new KTTW card at BCV, so we don't have double the cards to keep track of. Can anyone tell me if we are likely to have any ticket problems in these circumstances. Are we better off getting them directly through Disney? Any impact of the split on tickets is appreciated.
If I were in that situation, I would just keep the tickets off of the keycard. But that's just me. So far I've only had APs (or tickets about to become an AP) at WDW which can't be on the KTTW anyway, and it's not done at DLR where I'm even more used to things, so for me it's not a big deal to have them separate.
