Starting in two days on Oct. 15, dogs are welcomed at these four  Walt Disney World Hotels:

  • Art of Animation Resort $50/night
  • Port Orleans Riverside Resort $50/night
  • Yacht Club Resort $75/night
  • Cabins at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness Resort $50/night

Guests are allowed a maximum of two dogs per room, and each guest will have access to pet walkways for exercise and green spaces with pet relief areas. During the dog lovers check in our furry friends will receive a Plutos Welcome Kit that includes:

  • A mat
  • Bowls
  • Pet ID tag
  • Plastic disposable bags
  • Puppy pads
  • Pluto’s “Do Not Disturb” sign to notify the staff that a pet is in the room.

Disney also has a partnership with Best Friends Petcare which is an on property full-service pet facility that assists with pet daycare and other pet services (fees apply). Pets will be allowed to stay in guests rooms but expected to be well behaved, on a leash in public resort areas and of course adequately vaccinated. Also, pet merchandise will soon be coming to the participating resorts!

Not being able to have a dog-friendly hotel was my only complaint about visiting WDW, and now I can go more often and not have to find a babysitter for my little love bugs because they will be with me in my hotel room! They have already experienced five years of Disneyland trips and now get to enjoy all of our WDW trips too! What are your thoughts about this new change? Let me know in the comments below!
