Would my little Yorkie be able to come on the magical express in her kennel from the airport to the hotel? Since we are staying at port Orleans its right across the street so I've read and I would just walk her over?
Thanks for the info!

That is a GOOD question! I do not know if ME allows animals, so you may want to call and find out. If you find out, please let us know!

Sorry I didnt have the answer for you!

Yes, they have overnight accommodations. Just had my dog there for 9 nights in February.

Two weeks

Hi!

We will be vacationing the last week of September and first week of October 13. We have a very hyper Jack Russell called Benson. We are considering bringing him down with us and putting him in Best Friends rather than the kennel we use at home. As we are driving bringing him with us means he will not be in the boarding kennel quite as long.

I am leaning towards a Villa for Benson, as he will be staying 14 nights and I feel he will need the extra space. Benson boy is a rescue dog and does not play well with other dogs especially when toys are involved, we are trying to work on his socialization, but he does not want to share the toys and will get aggressive with the other dogs who have the toys. So I am hoping we can swap the "playgroup" with personal "playtime" each day in the villa package. Other than this issue he is great boy.

We also plan to stop by and take him for a walk on the leash trail each day.

Does anyone have any other tips or suggestions for his stay? Thanks!

Can we come in and walk our dog during his stay? My D is very very attached to her dog and likewise he to her and I know she'd love it if at least once during our vacation she could go in and walk him and play for a bit. I'm leaning towards the regular indoor suite as he's a small'sh dog. I know he won't love it, but I don't feel like the indoor/outdoor is really worth the price increase (plus less human time), and we can't afford the fancier areas.

Yes, you can visit your dog and walk him! I never ended up doing it, but when I checked my dog is I was told that I could visit him during normal business hours and I think you have to walk them in the designated area (as opposed to leaving the facility). I suggest contacting them on their Facebook page. I've had the most luck getting my questions answered there!

We visited our dog about 3x during our stay. They ask that you don't come after 9p since it can create a ruckus for the dogs when they're supposed to be settling down. We just took her into the outdoor play area and played fetch and hung out for about 30 min each time. It was very easy and very accommodating!

Thanks for the fast replies! Trying to decide between here for the convenience of being right next to our hotel and a place in Orlando that includes play time with the same cost.

Well, if they had play time, it would only be like 2 play dates, so for the convenience of it, they would get more out of you coming to visit and walk them.

We did the middle level kennel (indoor/outdoor). I know you had said expense wise it didn't seem worth it, but it did include a 30 minute play date or something like that.

That have some a la carte options as well. We really enjoyed seeing our dog every few days and since it was her first time being away from us I think it helped her. The hardest part was finding the time to get there since we are in the parks all day!

Hi! Well I recently just got a puppy. A Maltese named Minnie (hehe. I had to.) I've had her since Oct. and she is my baby. She just turned a year June 25th. I have been away from her before, but only for a week, and she was in my parents care. What freaks me out is leaving her with strangers but this thread REALLY helped my fear! Thank you so much! My Minnie will be staying there over night from July 26th - August 9th. The PLAN is to visit her everyday. I am glad I will be able to walk with her and stuff.
The only thing is, is that Minnie is very shy when it comes to other animals. She is not vicious or anything but she is just very shy... She usually sits in the corner. So instead of playtime can she get that cuddle time thing?. She is very good with humans and loves affection and to be cuddled. I am thinking maybe I shouldn't because this would be a good experience for her... Also What of my own can I bring? (Food? Snacks? Toys? Blankets/Pillows? This is my first pet so I am LOST!!!

You can bring your own food and toys. They don't allow outside bedding to maintain a flea free guarantee.

They would allow me to change the playtime with something else if I wanted. My dog is a bit shy ad well, but she ended up really enjoying it. I think our dogs act a bit different when we aren't in the mix. I'd try the playtime and if they don't think she's enjoying it swap it out. They're really great about watching the dogs and keeping it safe and fun at playtime.

If you like them on Facebook you can see a bunch of playtime pictures.

Thanks for your help. I'll have to call as I don't see it on their website. I originally thought the indoor/outdoor actually meant they had access to a grassy area outside but it doesn't seem that way from the description. Anyway I think our trip has changed such that we'll have two possibly three late mornings which would be ideal for D going over to play with the dog.
