As a new dog mom, I understand the desire to bring your pup on vacation with you, especially if you usually drive to your destinations. Well, I have good news, Walt Disney World offers pet-friendly accommodations at four different resorts! At Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- Riverside, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort you will find dog-friendly accommodations for up to 2 dogs per guest room. No matter the resort these rooms will have easy outdoor access and be located near green spaces with pet relief areas. At my last stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- Riverside it was so fun to see all the pups walking around and enjoying their stay in the magic!
When you choose a dog-friendly resort keep in mind that your dog must be on a leash at all times and is not allowed to be in public areas around the resort including the pool areas. At The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort, your dog will be able to utilize the internal bus but they are not permitted on busses to the parks, in the parks, or in Disney’s Springs. A fee of $50 or $75 a night will be added to your room for enhanced cleaning protocols needed.
Now, if you’re rope-drop until park close kind of people and still want to bring your dog, you may want to consider using Disney’s on-site boarding facilities so your doggo isn’t stuck in the room all day. Best Friends Pet Hotel is located near Disney’s Port Orleans resorts. This pet care facility offers daytime boarding beginning one hour prior to park opening and ending one hour post park closing. They also offer overnight boarding for cats, dogs, and small pets including birds, reptiles, and rodents if you prefer to keep your furry (or not so furry friends) close by but don’t wish to have them stay in your room with you. For my campers, you can request a pet-friendly loop at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort for an additional $5 per night. Keep in mind this is for RV campers only, pets are not allowed in tents or pop-ups.
