ETA - I saw the pic on the first page. So the indoor only kennels are basically crates, but the indoor/outdoor kennel is more of a small room? There's only $2 in the price!

How far out have people been booking the indoor/outdoor kennels?

About where on WDW property is this located?

Thanks!
lenshanem- the indoors are basically crates inside the building in the back of the kennel. They are quiet, and not too crowded.

The indoor outdoor is a bit bigger, with a small outdoor run where the staff opens the door up for a potty break. If there is only a 2.00 difference, then I would close the indoor/outdoor. More bang for your buck!

The BFPC resort is located across the street from Port Orleans Riverside. Easy to find and you cant miss it!! Hope I helped you!

I know!!! Thats what I thought, that was the very first weekend they were open, so IDK if its still the same. Plus, I had a discount for 3 dogs total. My total bill came to 550.00 (and some change) for 3 dogs in the VIP suite for 4 nights. That also included extra potty walks, extra cuddle time and bottled water every day!

I think that was a great price, especially for 3 dogs. It would of been way more at our local vet (with one walk per day and sit 24/7 in a crate!!!) No way would I ever do that to my boys!!!

Hi, everyone! As a frequent Best Friends WDW boarder, I just wanted to straighten something out for you.
The suites that the dogs are in are NOT crates (I would never crate my babies!!! ), they are actually 2 rooms. They're either 3x7 or 3x8. Of course, I drove the BF people crazy before the first time I brought my puppies there, so I have all the info
By the way, the doggies always have 24-hour access to both rooms, and somehow they know where to do their "business." My guys always have as much fun as we do -- and they're more exhausted after the vaca than my Diz Kids!
Have fun!

I just made a reservation for our baby again in a villa. The rate for AP was $51/night.

I think the additional perks or offerings are different between just the indoor kennels and the villas. The biggest decider for us was the tv. Riley is with us ALL the time. We hoped hearing the voices would make being away less of a shock. Plus, she will actually watch tv with us sometimes so it's worth a shot.

I booked Riley's villa for 9/12 - 9/24 last week. With it being for such a long time I wanted to be sure there'd be availability.

I was thinking about the regular accomodations. I think they'd know which room was which by smells that only they can smell (since dogs have such better sniffers than us humans). I know in the villa, not even by the door that goes out to the patio, I couldn't smell anything icky.





I also wanted to note the following: DH & I were talking about our various travel expenses and paying as much off as we could prior to the trip. I called BFPC to see if they allowed you to pay the balance of your stay prior to arrival. I knew they took the deposit but wasn't sure about the rest. I was told the answer is yes and they can do it in as many increments as needed. With a $612 kennel bill I'd like to knock that one out of the way early! Just thought I'd share!

I'm planning on taking my Australian Retriever (Foster) there for his 2nd Birthday in May. Last year I took him to a Braves Game. He's a very social dog, and I booked him the VIP Villa... (The suites were all booked). I hope he gets enough interaction time while he's there. Does anyone recommend any add-ons that won't put me in the poor house? (This trip is just me and him heading to Disney for 4 days.. no one else could make it).

We added on "stay and play" which is four hours of continuous play time for an additional $11.00 a day. While we were there the hours were 1pm to 5pm.

i have a question! next year when we get married in disney, i will probably have to board my precious Baxter. all my doggy sitters will be attending the wedding. my mom (from another state) will have to board Chassis when she gets there. we will arrive and depart on separate dates. Will Chassis be able to stay with Baxter just for a few nights? We'll be there for 10 nights, she'll be there for 4. I assume they'll just add the charge for those days to his suite? they get along sooooo well--it'll be nice for him to have company!

So for an additional $11 a day He'll be part of the play group, instead of sitting in his room watching TV? I think I'll add that. He LOVES to play with other dogs. Since he's being groomed the last day, I guess I'll just add it to the first 3 days. Thanks for the Info!
