Split Stay AoA and Swan/Dolphin? Anyone done this?

Hi All, I'm taking my DD5 to Disney in October, and originally was thinking I was going to do a camping trip at Fort Wilderness. Now I'm having some second thoughts about this.

I have enough points for a free stay at the Swan/Dolphin using my SPG points, but really want Magical Express. So I was thinking maybe start out at AoA for 2 days so they'll pick up up at the airport and take our bags; then move to the Swan for the last 5 days.

Has anyone done a split stay with a Disney hotel and the Swan/Dolphin? Will they still move your bags like the other resorts, or since Swan/Dolphin is not "disney", I'd be on my own.

If they will move our bags, would it be crazy to do 1 day at AoA, 5 Swan, then back to AoA so I can get ME on both ends?

Thanks for any thoughts/ideas/input.
