Everybody knows a dog’s best friend is his “hooman” – especially Walt Disney World! Round up your canine companions because starting Sunday, October 15, Walt Disney World will welcome guests and their dogs to four of their resort hotels.
The hotels near Orlando, Florida, are Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney Port Orleans Resort-Riverside, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
Whatchu Doin’ With That Ice Cream, Hooman? I Want Some Too!
The pilot program is accepting reservations through October 2018. Two dogs are permitted per guest room.
The Yacht Club adds $75 to daily room rates for canine guests, the other three add $50.
In addition to easy access to outdoor pet exercise areas and pet relief areas, there will be plenty of Disney amenities and special touches to make your four-legged friends feel right at home:
- At check-in, Pluto’s Welcome Kit includes a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads, and dog walking maps. Also included: a Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger so that hotel staff will know that your pooch needs some privacy.
- Day care and other pet services are offered nearby at Best Friends, an on-property, full-service pet care facility (fees apply).
Dogs staying in a Disney resort guest room must be well-behaved, leashed in resort public areas, and properly vaccinated. To find out more about this new dog-friendly trial program, contact 407-W-DISNEY or visit the Disney Parks Blog.
Sounds Like a Treat!
