Pluto Ushers in Dog Friendly Era at Disney World Hotels

In big news from the happiest place on earth, Walt Disney World started welcoming pets to four of its on-site hotels on Sunday, October 15, 217.

In time for Halloween, you say? Well, perhaps that's because it is mascot Pluto's favorite holiday.

According to our source, the designated pet-friendly hotels are:

The new service permits up to two dogs per guest room. Each resort also offers easy access to outdoor pet exercise areas and green spaces with pet relief areas.

At check-in, guests with four-legged guests will receive "Pluto’s Welcome Kit" -- an amenity kit for owners that includes a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads and dog walking maps. Your dog will love the Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger indicating to hotel staff that a pet is in the room.

Day care and other pet services, for a fee, are offered nearby at Best Friends, an on-property full-service pet care facility. And it would not be Disney without an announcement that pet merchandise will be coming soon. According to our source, dogs staying in a Disney resort guest room "must be well behaved, leashed in resort public areas and properly vaccinated." Keep in mind that pets are not welcome in the theme parks. You may have to hide your slippers, because Pluto will have your guestroom to himself for several hours.

The resorts’ per night/per room pet-cleaning rates are $50 per night in addition to room rates at each of the hotels, with the exception of Disney’s more posh Yacht Club Resort, which charges $75 each night.

For more information about this  dog-friendly trial program, including other restrictions and policies, contact 407 W-DISNEY or visit DVC Members should contact Disney Vacation Club Member Services at 800/800-9800.

Let us know how you it goes!
