LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Four hotels at Walt Disney World Resort will allow guests to bring dogs beginning Sunday, October 15. Each resort offers easy access to outdoor pet exercise areas and green spaces with pet relief areas.
The resorts’ per night/per room pet-cleaning rates are:
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort - $50/night
Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort - $50/night
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort - $75/night
Cabins at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness Resort - $50/night
The pilot program is accepting reservations through October 2018. Two dogs are permitted per guest room.
Dog lovers will find special touches for their four-legged friends. Like Pluto’s Welcome Kit which includes a mat, bowls, pet ID tag, plastic bags, puppy pads and dog walking maps. Also included: a Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger indicating to hotel staff that a pet is in the room. Doggy day care and other pet services are offered nearby at Best Friends, an on-property pet care facility.
Disney says dogs staying in its hotels “must be well behaved, leashed in resort public areas and properly vaccinated.”
