We split stays all the time and it's really easy, especially because we book room-only reservations. I think how to transfer depends on three factors: 1) Where you plan to spend your transfer day. 2) Whether you need your luggage before the evening of transfer day. 3) How anxious you are to get to Resort #2! If you plan to spend your transfer day in a park close to Resort #1 and don't need your luggage until the evening of transfer day, then I'd suggest taking it down to the lobby and Bell Services will transfer it for you. While it may arrive in the early/mid afternoon, I don't count on that to avoid disappointment. If you plan to spend your transfer day in a park close to Resort #2 or need your luggage before the early afternoon, then I'd suggest taking a cab to Resort #2 in the early morning, checking in and if your room isn't ready, leaving your luggage with Bell Services at Resort #2. We've done both and these are the factors that we consider. But if I were staying at an All Star and transferring to BC, I'd want to get to BC ASAP in the morning and start the day from there. (I felt that way last year transferring from POFQ to YC - so excited to get to YC and in a cab around 6am!) So in your situation, I'd spring for the cab, bring luggage along, check into BC, leave luggage with BC Bell Services if your room isn't ready, and start your day! Still makes me happy for you, thinking of that escape, the wonderful sushi and the yummy tart. Still too bad you weren't able to add a glass of wine to that combo. If we ever make it to WDW at the same time, I say that's on our list of lunch possibilities! Ninja, if you join us, we'll take it over to ABC!
