Sure you can bring the kids—but now you also can bring the dogs to four Walt Disney World Resort hotels, beginning on Sunday, Oct. 15.

Pets are now welcome for $50 a night at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort and the Cabins at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness Resort, and for $75 per night at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, for a maximum of two pets per room. Guest rooms in the four properties will offer easy access to outdoor pet walkways and green spaces with pet relief areas.

Disney will offer other special amenities to make the guest experience special. At check-in, dogs will get a Pluto’s Welcome Kit, with a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads and dog-walking maps. A Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger will caution hotel staff to be aware there is a pet in the room.

Disney will offer pet daycare and other pet services through on-property Best Friends Pet Care facilities at the four resorts.
