Select Walt Disney World Hotels Continue Dog-Friendly Resort Policy


Walt Disney World will continue to evaluate their pilot offering guests at four Disney Resort hotels an opportunity to bring their canine companions with them for an additional charge. These hotels include Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and Disney's Yacht Club Resort.


Designated dog-friendly rooms are available to accommodate guests traveling with up to two dogs per room and at this time, dogs are the only pets allowed. These rooms have easy access to outdoor walkways for exercise and to green spaces with pet relief areas. Upon arrival, dogs and their owners will be greeted with a complimentary Pluto’s Welcome Kit.


Guests traveling with their dogs must register them with the front desk at the resort and adhere to the pet policies they receive upon registration.


These include reminders about:

  • proper care and behavior

  • the need for the dog to remain on a leash at all times while in public spaces

  • Guests must be able to provide documentation that their dog’s vaccinations and inoculations are up to date, upon request.


While the majority of areas will remain canine-free to protect guests with allergies, certain floors or sections of each of these four hotels have been designated as dog-friendly. Other than service animals, dogs are not permitted in theme parks, water parks or common areas such as restaurants, pools and recreational spaces.


Guests who prefer rooms in canine-free areas may make a request at the front desk. Please note that the campsites and cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will remain pet-friendly. Walt Disney World also continues to offer 22 resort hotel options that do not have similar dog-friendly policies.
