Some find this along with packing and transferring their bags a hassle but others think its no big deal. Just depends on the person. I hope that clarified things a bit.
But does this work if you want the dining plan at your second hotel. Don't you need to add park tickets to that reservation to be able to add the dining plan?

I think split stays are definitely easier with DVC.

Would I do it again? Probably.
You do lose some time unless you are super efficient. We did it when we were there for nine nights, so it wasn't a big deal.

A taxi is more expensive but it eliminates the wasted hour and a lot of aggrevation.

we are planning a split stay next fall and our plan is to do breakfast at the original resort and then send our bags to the new resort while we head to a park for the day and then head to new resort for dinner, so not much wasted time planned but it is our first time so i could be in for a surprise!
