Dog Friendly Resort Policy at Walt Disney World

Beginning October 15th, Walt Disney World will now allow non-service dogs at select resorts:

 Designated dog-friendly rooms will be available at Disney’s Yacht Club ResortDisney Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and the cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and will include Pluto’s Welcome amenity, which gives dogs and their owners a collection of dog-friendly items. Certain floors or sections of a hotel will be designated as dog-friendly, while the majority of areas will remain canine-free to accommodate Guests with allergies or other concerns. While there are no in-room services available at this time, Best Friends Pet Care does provide services like doggie day care at its nearby facility on Disney property if our human Guests are enjoying our parks for long periods of time.

Boy and Dog

Dog lovers will find plenty of Disney amenities and special touches for their four-legged friends.

  • At check-in, Pluto’s Welcome Kit includes mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable 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.
  • Disney enjoys a partnership with Best Friends Pet Care, an on-property full-service facility that can provide assistance with pet daycare and other pet services (fees apply).
  • Pet merchandise is coming soon to participating resorts.
  • While there are no in-room services available at this time, Best Friends Pet Care does provide services like doggie day care at its nearby facility on Disney property.

There will be rules in place including but not limited to:

  • Limit of 2 dogs per room
  • Dogs must be supervised at all times, and should not be left unattended for more than 7 hours
  • Guests will be allowed to use Minnie Vans and Magical Express  but must remain in pet carriers at all times
  • Dogs will still not be allowed in the parks or at Disney Springs unless they are services animals.

Senses Spa

One of my favorite, adult only things to experience about a Disney Cruise is the Senses Spa. On the Disney Fantasy and Dream it’s slightly different and since the Fantasy is my FAVORITE ship, I’ll be talking about that version today.

When you first board your ship, everything is open to explore.  Be sure to stop by and take a tour of the spa.It’s a nice way to check things out without having an appointment!

Tony’s Town Square Review

One of the few restaurants at Walt Disney World that often gets a so-so or even downright bad reviews is Tony’s Town Square. I finally decided to check it out with my best friend to see if the reviews hold any truth.

Conveniently located inside the Magic Kingdom it’s easy to get to and diminishes travel time by not having to head outside the park. If you aren’t sure where it’s located, right after you walk through the train station, head into the Exposition hall on the right hand side.   Back when I was a cast member this was where you could have fun photos taken in front of a green screen as well as get all your camera supplies…you know, like film?

Top 10 Counter Service Restaurants

Much of the time when clients are preparing for their Walt Disney World vacations the focus is on table service restaurants. It’s imperative to make reservations in advance so it’s no surprise it’s often the focus of our planning. Today thought, I’d like to talk about my favorite counter service locations. I think Disney does such an amazing job at offering a variety of food. Disney has so much more to offer than burgers and fries!! My selections below are simply my personal favorites. They are not necessarily the best value, the cheapest or anything else…just my favorites that I tend to visit over and over!
