Are there places where I can leave my pets?

With the exception of service dogs for Guests with disabilities, pets are not permitted in our Theme Parks or hotels, or on our Resort or Theme Park buses. They may, however, stay in one of five on-site air-conditioned kennels, each of which is a member of the American Boarding Kennel Association. Pet Care Kennels are located adjacent to the Magic Kingdom® Park Transportation and Ticket Center, at the entrance to Epcot®, at the entrance to the Disney-MGM Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom® Park, and near the entrance to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.
