    Has the kennel reopened? If not is there an expected date for reopening? Thanks, Nick

    Greetings again, Nicholas, and welcome back to planDisney!

    It's a pleasure to hear from you again. As a vet and a fellow dog owner, you're a person after my own heart. As thrilled as I was to see the Disneyland Resort open up again after the pandemic closure, I was disappointed to see that the Disneyland Kennel Club did not re-open along with the rest of the Resort. It looked like such a fun place to leave your furry friend, too.

    Unfortunately, Disney has still not announced any plans to reopen the Kennel Club at this time and there have been no updates on whether it will open its doors again in the future. For Guests traveling to the Disneyland Resort with their pets, we recommend looking into Good Neighbor Hotels that are labeled "Pet Friendly" so you don't have to leave your trusty companion at home. Alternatively, I'm sure there are reliable local kennels and doggy day cares that will monitor your pet for you while you enjoy the Parks. 

    Even if the Disneyland Kennel Club hasn't reopened, I still love showing my love for Disney through my Disney dog, Lilo! I often pick up a souvenir for her when I visit the Parks and she currently sports a Haunted Mansion collar and eats out of a bowl that says "Feed Me, Foolish Mortal!" In addition, if you are near the Bay Area, the Walt Disney Family Museum is also featuring Disney Cats & Dogs as a Special Exhibit until June 2, 2024! 

    Nicholas, I'm sorry I didn't have a more "pawsitive" answer for you. I'm also anxiously awaiting any news about the Kennel! If you have any more questions, please feel free to write back again. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

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
