    Are the items included in the pet welcome kit ours to keep? For $50 a night, they should give us a new one every day :)

    Hi everyone- I’m new to these forums and I appreciate all the info. We brought our small dog to Port Orleans (Riverside) in 2018 and the staff and facility were great. The only problem we encountered was that there was no doggy day care option on the premises. They said we’d have to take our dog down the road to the pet resort. Since we didn’t have a vehicle, that was impossible. We took the resort shuttle to and from the kingdoms to our hotel to walk the dog, but Animal Kingdom was a long ride and the shuttles were few and far between. If you plan well it’s not a huge problem getting back and forth to any of the kingdoms. A lot depends on your pet and how long they can be crated in your room before they’d need to go out.

    We are returning to Port Orleans in May (2020) with our dog. The dog friendly rooms are located towards the back of the facility - so while it may be a long-ish walk to the dining area and main pool, it’s much closer to the shuttle pick up in back. There is also a smaller (quieter) pool directly next to the pet friendly rooms that face the garden.

    Hi all- :dogdance:

    We brought our dog (who was only a few months old at the time) with us 2 years ago during our Disney trip. We are returning in a few months with our dog again, and I was hoping some of you might have a few tips or tricks to make it a little smoother for our pup. The first day he cried and barked for a long time after we left the room. My husband and I took turns returning to the room each day we were there in order to walk him and give him love. However, it is a long ride from Animal Kingdom to our resort (Port Orleans). We use the Disney shuttles for transportation.

    Would anyone recommend the doggy day care nearby? I wish the hotel had bathrooms with doors so we could let him stay in a whole room and not just his crate.

    Just book your baby at Best Friends. They have play time, snacks, adventure walks, etc. My dog is headed there next week for three nights.

    Great- thanks! One of the resort cast members mentioned that place, but I wanted to know if anyone had first hand experience with them.
