I booked a WDW trip for next fall at BLT for 5 nights in a 1 Bedroom (booked through WDW website … I know, it would have been cheaper to rent points but I didn’t want to go that route).
I wanted to book 6 nights, but the 1 Bedroom wasn’t available on the 6th night so I booked 5 nights.
Today, my parents decided to also go to WDW while my family is there and booked a Studio at BLT for the same 5 nights. Even if my family stays a 6th night, my parents are not interested in staying for a 6th night, but the Studio room they booked is available for a 6th night.
I know I can book a different room at BLT for my family for the 6th night (there are Studios available), but I’m not eager to deal with the delay between checking-out and checking-in and moving our stuff to bell services and then back to the new room.
It hit me … if my parents booked a 6th night in their Studio, I could move my family’s stuff to the Studio in the morning and not have to deal with the delay between checking-in and checking-out of a random room. I would reimburse my parents for the cost of the extra night.
Then I started thinking about the complications … it would cause an issue with my parents taking DME back to the airport after the 5th night when they still technically “have the room for 1 more night” … and DME would be an issue for me too since WDW would show me checking out the night before. And then the issue of the magic bands opening up the door. My family would not be going to the parks the last day so at least FP booking is not an issue for the last day. Seems like there should be a logical way to do this, but there are many complications so maybe best to forget about it.
Is there a way to make this work that I’m missing?
