If your priority is to go to the parks then I'd follow the previous advice first.
Honestly though, that actually sounds like a pain. And costs extra unnecessary money.

Unless of course you need to be at your next resort right away with your luggage... but on resort switching days (we're vets about this, we switch almost every trip and sometimes 3 times) we just plan for staying in the park through the afternoon. I think this year, we plan on having an early dinner for our switch.

Honestly it's faster and more convenient which is worth the extra $25 or so. We actually rarely spend all day in the parks and we like to set our own timetable on vacation. Everybody finds their own threshold and using a cab is hardly a pain.

Thank you to you also. :-)
I'm pleased I asked, otherwise I never would have known this.
