Lots of us consider our dogs to be part of our family. It’s not surprising that we want to take our dogs on vacation. Well now you can do just that. Disney will allow you to bring your dog to Walt Disney World. During this trial period, dogs can stay with you at one of four resorts starting October 15, 2017.  Dogs can stay at Art of Animation, Port of Orleans Riverside, Yacht Club and Fort Wilderness Cabins.

Of course there are some rules and fees. The cost is $50 per night at AOA, POR, and the FW Cabins. At the Yacht Club this cost is $75 a night. You can have a maximum of 2 dogs per night in each room.

Guest and dogs will have access to outdoor walkways and green spaces for pets to relieve theirselves. Upon arrival you will also get a Pluto welcome kit for your pets. The kit includes a mat, bowls for food and water, tag, courtesy disposable waste bags, puppy pads and dog walking maps. There will also be a Pluto “Do Not Disturb” sign to hang on the door knob to alert the Mousekeeping Staff a pet is in the room.

Should you need some help with your pet while at the resort you can contact Best Friends Pet Care. This is an on-property full-service facility that can provide assistance for a fee.

Pet products popping up in the parks and stores on property dedicated to pets and they will soon be at the resorts as well.
