Switching Resorts how to transfer luggage

Hi All,

I am staying at the All Star Music one night until my friends get in the next day. Then we are all saying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. How can I get myself (well I know how to get there) and my luggage to AKL from All Star? I did this a few years ago but can remember if we just taxi'd it or took Disney Transportation. I dont mind if i have to cart my luggage around it will only be 1 suitcase and a carry on well 2 with my camera bag. I would prefer not to have to pay for a taxi if I dont have too.

Thanks all!

Give your luggage to bell services and ask them to transfer it for you. Otherwise you will have to take a cab because luggage is not allowed on Disney transportation.

I didnt know luggage was not allowed. I picked up a buddy of mine at DTD when he got off the Lynx bus from the airport (prior to DME). We rode it back to Pop. He's another airline guy so all he had was 1 rollaboard.

Id say a Cab is the quickest and easiest way.

Upcoming Trips:
Sep 29-Oct 7: AKV-Kidani Disney World
June 29-July 10: Copenhagen-Dover Disney Magic

Shelly is right. If you give your bags to bell services, they'll arrange for them to get to AKL. It will NOT be fast, however. It will be in the later part of the afternoon before they arrive at AKL. If that's not a problem, you're golden.

My daughter did a switch from ASMu to BWV after her band trip a couple of years ago. I came down the day before her last day and checked into BWV; she checked out of ASMu and had her bags transferred. They were there when we got back around 5:30.

Another time, we switched from Pop to Fort Wilderness. Because I had a computer and we wanted to get over to FW early, we got a cab and carted our own luggage. That worked fine, too, and wasn't expensive.

W/R/T luggage on the bus, I think the bus drivers at DTD are little more lenient than at other locations because some of the stores actually sell luggage and if resort guests weren't allowed to take their purchases on the bus, there would be problems. I've seen luggage -- both recently purchased and for people who seemed to be moving from a DTD resort to a WDW resort -- on buses there.
