    We do it all the time! It's fun to look forward to the new resort mid-stay. It's a way to try new places w/o abandoning favorites. :):thumbsup2 Most of the time, it's a split between 2 resorts, but we've done triple splits twice. We plan our parks based on where we're staying often. I'm never losing time. They move your luggage (we moved our own prior to them doing that for us and it was still OK w/ a car), we never unpack anyway, we just go from the resort, to the parks and then to the new resort after that. Just as we would if we were returning to the original resort. I'm the one that does the check-in so the DH and kids go have fun as I take care of that business and we're happy clams. It's really a GREAT way to satisfy curiosity and add some zest to your stay. :)

    We are doing a split stay in December. There are 5 adults and 3 children. It might be hectic but we normally go to Disneyland, not WDW, and we wanted to experience as much as possible. I can't see losing a day. We plan to check-out, drop our bags off, and head to the park. They'll text you when your room is ready.

    I think you will spend more money on tickets than you would "save" by booking the DxDDP for the first three nights at the Poly. Of course, you are staying at Deluxe resorts during the most expensive time of year, so maybe it's worth it to you to pay more for the convenience of booking two separate reservations with the DxDDP and eating the cost of the second set of tickets. If you consider getting the DxDDP for only your second reservation (the one at WL) then you can pick up your tickets from the 2nd reservation early after you check into the Poly. Look at part "I. Picking up Package Tickets Prior To Start Of Package" here: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=25022943&postcount=15 on how to do it.
