    Can I visit Disney Springs with my Emotional Support dog(9 pounder Shih Tsu) in her stroller?

    Hi Rafael!

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort is such a magical experience, so I completely understand wanting to have your pup with you for all of your pixie-dusted adventures!  Unfortunately, only registered and certified service animals are allowed in the parks and at Disney Springs, which means that your emotional support dog would not be allowed.

    That being said, if you want to be able to keep your furbaby with you in your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, you will want to check out the pilot program that offers dog-friendly accommodations at four of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.  Although this program is only in its testing phases, and therefore is always subject to change, as of right now, no official end date has been announced for it!  As a part of this program, your room will have easy access to pet relief areas, and you will also receive Pluto's Welcome Kit to help your pup feel right at home!

    Even if you choose to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that does not have dog-friendly accommodations, you can still bring your pup with you to the Walt Disney World Resort and drop her off at Best Friends Pet Care!  While you are having your magical adventures, she can have some of her own!  Best Friends Pet Care will provide luxurious accommodations for your furry friend during the day while you are exploring the parks, or even overnight!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
