    Are cats currently allowed at any of the Disney resorts?

    Mary Alison, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Walt Disney World Resort is truly the Most Magical Place on EARth, but you must remember that a Mouse runs it! As such, the Big Boss is NOT a fan of cats (unless they’re Si and Am from Lady and the Tramp!). We have a beloved family member who masquerades as a dog, so I completely understand how you want to bring your pet with you, but unfortunately, the mouse says nope!

    But! Service animals are welcome on the property. They are defined as “a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, an individual with a disability.” They must remain on leash and under the control of their owners at all times.

    Currently, cats are not covered under the service animal umbrella and therefore not permitted in the Parks or Resort hotels. A purr-fect option might be Best Friends Pet Care, which is a Walt Disney World Resort Pet Boarding facility. I’ve visited the Center, and it looks like nirvana for pets! They offer excellent accommodations as well as treats and activities.

    Mary Alison, if you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. Meow you real soon!
