Guests who bring their dogs will receive "Pluto's Welcome Kit" at check-in, which includes a mat, bowls, pet ID tag, plastic disposable bags, puppy pads, and dog walking maps.

Four Walt Disney Resorts are going pet-friendly. The kit will also include a Pluto "Do Not Disturb" dor hanger to indicate to hotel staff that a pet is inside the guest's room. It will only cost guests an extra $50 per night to bring their pets to Disney Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, Disney's Art of Animation Resort or the cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, and $75 a night to have them stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort.

For additional fees, Disney World's on-property facility called Best Friends offers other pet-care services, including day care. Large sections will remain canine-free for guests with allergies or other concerns.

The dogs are expected to be well behaved and on leashes, as well as have proper vaccinations.
