    Are there any future plans at all to reopen the Disney dog Kennels? It makes it so inconvenient to have to find a place and then spend time taking them to and from instead of the convenience of having a place available right at the entrance.

    Hello from one dog lover to another, Nickola!

    Welcome to planDisney and I'm so glad that you found your way here with your question! As a veterinarian and dog owner myself, I totally sympathize with your struggle to find reliable and competent care for your furry friend whenever you go on vacation. I see that your visit is coming up in only a handful of days, so I hope you were able to find accommodations for your companion while you visit the Disneyland Resort!

    Nickola, I'm sorry to say that the Disneyland Kennel Club did not re-open with the rest of the Resort in 2021 after the pandemic shutdown. Disney has not released any news regarding plans for the Kennel Club at this time. It really looked like a fun place to board your pet and it seemed like the Cast Members really enjoyed working there! It has a long history with the Resort, opening as the Ken-L Land Pet Motel on January 18, 1958, eventually adopting the name "Kennel Club" in 1993. 

    I wish I had more concrete news to bring you, Nickola. If you do want to take your dog on vacation with you, there are several Good Neighbor Hotels in the area that are labeled as Pet Friendly. They will allow you to keep your friend in the hotel room while you enjoy a day at the Parks, eliminating the necessity of taking them to and from a boarding facility. That might be a nice alternative solution for you.

    Whenever I visit, I always like to include my Golden Retriever when I shop for souvenirs. In fact, she has a Disney Halloween costume prepared and I'm currently feeding her from a Haunted Mansion dog bowl that states "Feed Me, Foolish Mortal!" You can find some really nifty pet souvenirs at Disney Home in the Downtown Disney District and Port Royal Curios and Curiosities in New Orleans Square. 

    Nickola, I hope that was helpful for you. I know that you just want the best for your dog, and I wish you the best in finding a solution that works for you. If there is anything else with which we can help, please write back to us again. You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
