We always do this on split stays. It's easy and we have peace of mind that our bags will be there when we get back to the room. We always plan to go to the park closest to the new resort, so we don't waste too much time in travelling.Sorry your bags were delayed so much on transfer day, especially with a toddler. Our bags have arrived at our new resort by 6pm on transition days with split stays. But I have been on the receiving end of ridiculously slow, late night luggage delivery from the airport and it’s frustrating.
To reduce the chance for errors or delays on split stay transition days, I sometimes use Lyft or Uber to move the bags myself and leave them with bell services at the new resort until our room is ready. One adult can move the bags while the rest of the group heads to a park.
We also do this for split stays, I just like to handle my luggage myself.We always do this on split stays.

I don't know of many who haven't. Like an airport, bags get lost misplaced etc. on the rare occasion we do this, I take a small carryon with me on the bus or whatever and take it to the next resort myself.Hello Everyone
We finally did our first split stay AKL-Poly and my god what a nightmare. We left AKL on a Sunday and was told our bags will be in our room at 4pm. I figured that was wrong and asked again when we dropped our bags off at 10am @AKL and was told more like 6pm. We headed to Epcot with the idea to leave when i room was ready and see if our bags would be there, At 345 we got the text and headed over got to our room and no bags ! Called down stairs to see if they where there and i could pick them up they said they have not arrived yet. 6pm comes along and still no bag we are told Jambo House is very slow and are looking at an 8pm arrival. We head to Epcot to take advantage of the Monorail and figured at least our bags will be back after the fire works. WRONG !!! WE get into our room at 1015 PM and our bags are still not there ! For me to get mad about something im telling you it takes a lot , We have a 2 year old and needed his things for his bath change of clothes and what not. I call downstairs and they have no idea why our bags have not arrived and will have them up in 15 minutes. I tell my wife if they are not up here by 1030PM im heading down there , 1030 comes along and still no bags ! I decided not to go down there bc i do not want to make a seen but im really upset at this point and i call again. Lady downstairs apologies again and personally guarantees my bags will be there in 15 minutes, Finally 1045pm our bags are in our room !!!! almost 13 hrs since we dropped them off for a simple split stay !!! Has anyone else had that problem?
Same here. I've been fortunate on split stays and luggage delivery. Only ONE time in over 20 split stays has my luggage not arrived by 4:00. And when it didn't arrive by 6:00, they were nice enough to drive over to the first resort get it. Come to think of it, that was the only time that I transferred from a DVC resort to a non-DVC resort.I have had the same experience.
