Dog-Friendly Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

As part of an ongoing pilot program, rooms at select Disney Resort hotels are now dog-friendly. Dogs must be leashed in public areas, vaccinated, and well behaved. There is an additional cost per night to use this service.

Dogs will be greeted with "Pluto’s Welcome Kit" which will include a mat, bowl, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads, and a dog walking map. Additionally, rooms with a dog staying in them will receive a Pluto-themed door hanger to notify hotel staff that there is a dog in the room.

The dog-friendly service is available at the following Walt Disney World resorts:

  • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside
  • Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
  • Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
