Split stay question

Have any of you ever done a split stay with a 4 night trip? I was thinking about doing two nights at a MK resort and 2 nights at an Epcot resort---but I'm thinking maybe that would be crazy???? It kind of sounds crazy. That being said, we are not "unpacking" types. We usually live out of suitcases and I typically have everyone's outfit for each day in a ziplock. Any thoughts for me?

We did a split stay for a 4-night trip in April! We're doing a BC/CR split for a 3-night stay this weekend, and a Poly/BWI split for a 7-night stay in January. We even did split stays for 2-night and 3-night trips last year.

We're the same with packing - at WDW, we usually keep everything in our suitcases anyway. So zipping up the suitcases and bringing them down to the lobby is no big deal. We've been taking a cab in the morning of our transfer, but only because that's worked with our park plans so far. (Wanted to start our DHS day from YC, want to start our MK day from CR, for example.) But in January, we're spending the morning in MK and the afternoon in Epcot the day we transfer from Poly to BWI, so we'll just let Bell Services transfer the bags while we're in the parks.

We love split stays - especially the MK/Epcot area split!

Call me crazy then ... we did a 5 split 10 night stay last April ... it was great but i think 3 nights is the minimum for a really enjoyable stay.

We did BLT/BCV, and it was the best of both worlds in terms of location. However, I would do it in reverse next time as BCV rooms seems like a dump compared to BLT. We used packing cubes. Moving wasn't much of a hassle at all, just had to tip bell services a few times.
