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.
