    Where or who is a trusted kennel/day care and or pet sitter for my 12 lb fur baby that I can hire for the day when I'm in Disneyland Anaheim? I will be buying tickets for September 27th and 28th 2023 to celebrate my retirement and birthday.

    Hey there, Sonya!

    We wish you a warm welcome from all of us at planDisney! First of all, happy retirement and a very happy early birthday to you!! That's such exciting news and I'm thrilled that you are choosing to celebrate this new chapter in your life by visiting the Disneyland Resort! I hope that we can help you plan a wonderful trip that will appropriately commemorate the occasion.

    Sonya, I am a fellow pet owner as well as a small animal veterinarian, so I completely understand your desire to find someone you trust to watch over your fur baby. It truly is a loss for us pet owners that the Disneyland Kennel Club did not reopen with the rest of the Disneyland Resort in 2021. It seemed like such a wonderful place to leave your pet while you enjoyed a day in the Parks. Although I have no specific recommendations to offer, here are some alternatives for you:

    • There are a number of Good Neighbor Hotels that are labeled as Pet Friendly, so you would be able to keep your furry friend in the room as you visit the Parks. Of these, I have heard many good reviews of The Viv Hotel.
    • You could perform an Internet search for a reliable boarding facility for your pet. There are many in the area (my wife and I used to practice near there) so you could read the reviews to select a good one.
    • If you would like a more personal pet sitter, there's nothing better than word of mouth. I find local veterinary hospitals to be great sources of information as they know who to trust, so you could call a few and ask around.

    When you visit, be sure to stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park or Guest Services in Disney California Adventure to pick up your Complimentary Birthday Button! I'm sure everyone would love to celebrate along with you! Did you also know that you'll be visiting the Disneyland Resort while it's decorated for the Halloween Season? In fact, Oogie Boogie Bash is going to be held on September 28, so purchase a ticket if you're interested! 

    Sonya, I hope you found that helpful in planning your trip. If you need anything further from us, please do not hesitate to contact us again! We'd love to help you plan this once in a lifetime trip!

    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
