    Can I bring my 6 lb dog to the Beach Club?

    Hiya Carol, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question about bringing your furry friend to Disney's Beach Club Resort with you!

    AH! A fellow dog owner that wants to share the magic of Walt Disney World Resort with their best four-legged pal - Mickey (and Pluto) would be proud!

    While my Disney vacations tend to be at sea, I do love the occasional stay shoreside to take in all the excitement, especially at the Disney Resort Collection hotels! Disney's Beach Club Resort and Disney's Yacht Club Resort are family favorites of ours - probably because the nautical touches remind us of the Disney Cruise Line's gorgeous ships! Oh, and who can forget one of the biggest attractions: access to the amazing Stormalong Bay

    While our pup wouldn't be able to join us on a Disney Cruise Line vacation or in the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks unless she were a trained service animal, I checked with a Cast Member about what the current policies are surrounding pets. Currently, there's an ongoing pilot program designating dog-friendly accommodations at four Disney Resorts Collection hotels! Unfortunately, Disney's Beach Club Resort is not on the list as of January 2022, but there may just be a silver lining to that raincloud: Disney's Yacht Club Resort is!

    If your heart wasn't set on staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort specifically, I'd suggest reaching out to a Cast Member by phone and exploring your options and availability just on the other side of Stormalong Bay! While I can't guarantee availability, this would definitely be a magical way to include your furry family member in your vacation! Plus, at check-in, dogs and their owners will be greeted with a complimentary Pluto’s Welcome Kit! Oh, Boy!

    Please note that dogs are expected to be well-behaved, leashed in public areas and properly vaccinated. While sections of Disney's Yacht Club Resort have been designated dog-friendly, most of the resort areas are still canine-free to protect Guests with allergies.  

    If your accommodations remain at Disney's Beach Club Resort, remember Disney offers "A Resort for Pets" at Best Friends Pet Care! While I know it's never fun parting from your "Fur-mily" members, I'm sure they would enjoy the day care, activities and luxurious suite accommodations offered!

    Thanks again, Carol, for unleashing this question here at planDisney! I hope that you are able to put together the ideal vacation for your entire family - including that 6 lb nugget of yours! 

    TTFN, Ta-Ta For Now!
