Dogs will be greeted with Pluto’s Welcome Kit which will include a mat, bowl, a pet ID tag, courtesy plastic disposable bags, puppy pads, and a dog walking map. Additionally, rooms with a dog staying in them will receive a Pluto-themed door hanger to notify hotel staff that there is a dog in the room.

The dog-friendly service is available at the following Walt Disney World resorts:
