Service Animals
Service animals are welcome in most areas of Disney World. At all times service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness. Guests should follow the same attraction entrance procedures as described for guests using wheelchairs. Due to the nature of some attractions, service animals may not be permitted to enter. In those instances, a member of the guest’s party must remain with the animal.

Designated "Break" Areas for Service Animals

Service animals are welcome to use any open outdoor area for relief as long as the owner picks up after the animal and leaves the area clean. Relief areas include the theme parks, Resort hotels and other Guest areas.
