Is your pet your traveling companion? Then you're both in for a treat — a doggie (or kitty) treat, that is — with all the pet-friendly hotels and resorts in Orlando. From living like a rock star to hanging out in the lap of luxury, your four-legged friends will have a "pawsome" time in any of these 20 lodgings at Orlando's theme parks, beyond the theme parks, and in downtown Orlando and Winter Park.
Walt Disney World® Resort
As of 2017, four Walt Disney World Resort properties are welcoming guests and their dogs, with a maximum of two dogs per room. Each pet-friendly guestroom at these four locations has easy access to outdoor pet walkways. At check-in, guests with dogs will also receive "Pluto's Welcome Mat," which includes a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, disposable bags, puppy pads and dog-walking maps, as well as a special "Do Not Disturb" tag indicating a dog is inside.
Disney's new pet-friendly resorts and their fees per guestroom include:
Additionally, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World continues to welcome pets. Extras include a "Pampered Pets" room-service menu. Plus, pets 17 pounds and under incur no additional fees.
Universal Orlando Resort
Loews is one of the few luxury resort brands to allow cats and dogs in guest rooms, and that courtesy extends to four of their offerings at Universal Orlando. Furthermore, the special "Loews Loves Pets" program caters to cuddly creatures and their owners. Amenities include local dog-walking routes and pet services such as veterinarians, pet shops, groomers and more. Pets also receive a logo bowl, placemat and special treat, with an option for a pets-only menu and specialized bedding.
