    Are kennels available for a dog at animal kingdom if so what are hours and cost

    Hiya, Tom!

    Welcome to planDisney, friend! I am so glad to hear that you are planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Sadly, there are no kennels available for dogs at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park or at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Additionally, dogs are not permitted in the parks or at most Walt Disney World Resort hotels, with the exception being service animals.But Hakuna Matata, friend. This doesn't mean your favorite furry pal has to miss out on the magic!

    If a visit to The Most Place on Earth wouldn't be complete without your pup you do have options! If you prefer your dog to stay with you on your adventure there are a few hotels on property that are dog-friendly. Your dog can join you at the following resorts:
    • Disney's Art of Animation Resort
    • Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort
    • Disney's Yacht Club Resort
    • The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort. 
    It is important to note that dogs must be leashed at all times unless they are in your room. These resorts offer designated relief areas and there is a two-dog maximum. Your canine companion will even receive their very own Pluto's Welcome Kit when you arrive. 

    If your best pet pal would not enjoy time alone in your accommodations when you head off to the parks, there is a great spot for them to play all day. They can even stay overnight or for the duration of your stay. Best Friends Pet Hotel is located at Walt Disney World Resort! This pet favorite location is not just for dogs. Cats, birds reptiles, and even pocket pets can call this location their home away from home during your magical vacation. You can find all the details about pricing and the exciting day planned for your pet on the Best Friends Pet Hotel website!

    I hope your upcoming adventure is magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
