I added on a day at Pop! to the beginning of a stay at BLT. I did this in order to do the 24 hour event in MK. So after getting thrown out of MK at 6am, I went back to Pop!, slept about 2 hours, checked out of Pop! and went over to BLT. I arrived at BLT at 12 noon, put my bags in storage, and then went out to the pool and slept on a lounge chair until I got the text that the room was ready. That was the only time I really felt "homeless" in WDW. But it was worth it to me to do the 24 hour thing.

OM and I regularly did split stays until we had kids. We liked the variety. Now we'll come for 14 days and stay in one place.

The packing part is a pain. The being homeless and moving part really needn't be.

Step One: Pack your bags
Step Two: Take your bags to Bell Services and tell them where you are going
Step Three: Go to a Disney Park
Step Four: Return from a Disney Park to a different resort
Step Five: Check in; collect your bags from Bell or have them delivered

With small children who need a nap, this is irritating. For anyone else, it doesn't have to be. I think people often make the mistake of trying to have that day be a down day, but that's a mistake. You don't want a down day when you don't have a room. If you make it a park day, you simply won't notice you don't have a room, because you would not be in it anyway. Who doesn't have a day that they aren't in the room from 10 to 4? And the moving part is simply arriving on one bus/mode of transportation in the morning, and leaving by a different one in the evening.

But the packing .... yeah, I get that.
