ORLANDO (CBSMiami) – Walt Disney World Resort is going to the dogs – literally.

Beginning this Sunday, October 15th, Disney will welcome their guests along with dogs to select rooms at four of the resort’s hotels; Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

It will be limited to two dogs per per guest room. It will be an extra charge of $50 per night at Art of Animation, Port Orleans, and Fort Wilderness. It will be an extra $75 per night at the Yacht Club.

Each resort will offer easy access to outdoor spaces where Fido can get some exercise and do his, or her, business.

At check-in dog owners will be presented with Pluto’s Welcome Kit which includes a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads and dog walking maps. Also included: a Pluto “Do Not Disturb” door hanger indicating to hotel staff that a pet is in the room.

Day care and other pet services are offered nearby at Best Friends, an on-property full-service pet care facility. Fees apply.

Dogs staying in Disney resort rooms must be well behaved, leashed in public areas and properly vaccinated.

Disney is calling this a trial program. How well pet owners do with this may determine whether it becomes a permanent feature which could be expanded to other resorts.
