Traveling To Disney World With Pets
Traveling To The Disney World Parks With Pets
A family vacation often means bringing along the family pet. Disney is well aware of this fact and has addressed it by introducing a kennel service to help those very families. That said, it is now possible to experience a one of a kind family vacation at Disney, with your pet along for the ride. This makes it possible for families to now make that trip that they would otherwise have missed out on.
Disney World Kennels You will find Disney World kennels at five different locations throughout the Disney World parks: Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Best friends Pet Care Inc. are the people in charge of the operation. They are a trusted company and are a member of the American Boarding Kennel Association.
The only dogs allowed in the park at this time are service dogs, with the hotels, buses, and monorail also off limits. What that means is that you will have to arrange to transport your pet to and from the kennels yourself. You can also take advantage of overnight boarding if you plan on being at the park for a day or more.
Disney looks after it animal guests in the same style as it does human visitors. Your dog will have a large air-conditioned are to play in, and will be given plenty of attention by the staff. There is also professional veterinary care available in case your pooch needs a little medical attention.
Amenities for Your Pet As well as living in luxury, your pet will also receive regular potty walks, play groups, flat screen TVs, and even a yummy biscuit at bedtime. You could say that there are as many things for your dog to do at the Disney World parks as there are for you. You could opt to leave him in a horrible boarding kennel at home or give him a little taste of that Disney magic. Your dog will even get to eat like a king, with tuna on a Ritz cracker, cookies, bottled water, and even some special holiday treats if the occasion calls for it.
Price The Disney kennel fees are per animal, per day. Do not make the mistake of assuming that your Disney Resort reservation means that there will be a spot in the kennels. It is always best to call well in advance so that you can be sure of securing a spot for your pet. You can also get kennel passes from the Transportation and Ticket Center, Epcot and Fort Wilderness locations.
Prices are dependent on the type of animal you are kenneling, as well as the amenities you choose. You can expect to pay from $20 to $100 per day, with the base price getting you boarding and a pass to visit whenever you feel like it. If you want to add on any of the a la carte items like the ones mentioned earlier, you will start to add to the total daily amount you have to pay. The additional items run anywhere from $3 to $15 per item.
Requirements The kennel will need to see a copy of your pets current vaccination and health records before admitting him. Failure to provide those will mean that he will not be able to stay. There is no reservation requires, but the spot get filled up quickly. In order to ensure a spot, make sure to reserve in advance, and check on all the vaccination requirements when you do so.
When you are looking at Disney World packages be sure to include the price of the kennel if you plan on taking your furry friend along. Lets face it, if you are going to Disney for a fum family vacation, why shouldnt the family pet get the same experience?
