Split stay in the same hotel....

So we have a split stay at the same hotel. Originally I had reserved a split stay at two different resorts, but later on decided to stay at the same place to save some $$$.
However, they didn't have any regular rooms available at that point, just pool view. So.... No matter what, we are going to have to move.
If you were in this situation, how would you handle it? Would you ask to be upgraded to pool view for the entire trip so you don't have to be bothered to move, or moved down to standard view the entire trip? Would that even work? If neither option is available, and you have no choice but to move, how does it work exactly? We will be going to the parks that day at RD - We will have our own car, so should I just pack up the car early and take everything with us, or will they move it for us? Really regretting this stupid split stay....

I would pack a small, separate bag for the first day/night. It makes it much easier to move. The only other thing you could possibly do, when you first check in, is explain the situation and ask if you can downgrade to standard room and stay in that room the entire trip. It will cost you the $10, though.

You can continue checking to see if either room category opens up for the dates you want and modify the reservation. You can cancel a room only up to 5 days before arrival without penalty if you are able to extend one of the reservations. If nothing is available you can ask when you check in.

If you have to change rooms you can pack your luggage and take it to luggage assistance. You can pick up your bags or call to have them delivered when you are in your new room. Verify with luggage assistance how late at night they will deliver since some have said late night service is limited at the values.

We changed rooms mid way through our vacation at the BWI because we really wanted a boardwalk view and we started out with a garden view. We were told a boardwalk view would be available partway through our visit and we just switched then. It was really simple. Bell services picked up our luggage that morning and held it for us while we were at the parks. They were supposed to text us when the new room was ready but it wasn't ready until about 4 pm. When our room was ready we just called bell services and they brought our luggage up to the room for us. It was really pretty easy and the only thing that was a bit of a pain was that the room was ready a little later then we were expecting. It felt like we were starting our vacation all over again!
