    I am looking to visit Disneyland and am looking for an update on the Disney Kennel Club and if it has reopened? If so where can I find information on the DKC as I can not seem to find it online. Thanks

    Hi there, David!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for coming by. Your question hits close to home because in addition to being a fellow pet owner, I'm also a veterinarian. So I know how important it is to find a facility that you can trust to watch over your furry friend while you are in the Parks!

    I'm sorry to say that the Disneyland Kennel Club did not reopen with the rest of the Disneyland Resort after the pandemic closure. At this time, Disney has announced no plans for the Kennel Club. I can understand how difficult a loss this is, because the Disneyland Kennel Club seemed like a wonderful place to leave your pet! It's been such an important part of Disneyland Park's history, opening as the Ken-L Land Pet Motel in 1958 and operating steadily until 2020. 

    There are some possibilities for you to still bring your pet on vacation with you, however. There are many Good Neighbor Hotels that are labeled Pet Friendly and will allow you to leave your pet in the room while you enjoy a day at the Parks. You could also perform an Internet search for pet boarding facilities in the area. 

    Whatever you decide to do with your pet, it's always nice to include them somehow in your trip. I like to bring a little something back for my Golden Retriever Lilo whenever I visit the Parks. I love adding just a touch of Disney to my dog's everyday life, so she has a Disney mat on which she eats and a Disney food bowl!

    David, I wish I had more magical news about the Kennel Club for you. Nevertheless, I hope that helped to answer your question. If you need any further planning tips or advice, please feel free to reach out to us again anytime!

    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
