    Have you ever boarding your dogs there? We are trying to decide where to board our Weimarner at WDW or with local vet. It will be about a 6.5 hr drive and I worry about her getting car sick. I worry about her not eating she doesn't eat now if we leave her for half the day. At lest there I can go and check on her.:confused3

    sorry we have never used the kennels, but on our last visit DGD4 saw the kennels and ask what they were and I told her this is where people leave their pets while they go into the parks--she look at me so sweetly and ask "do they take baby brothers?'' Sisterly love at its finest.

    I have never used the kennels as we keeps our dogs in our motorhome with us but I was going to suggest that you post this over on the camping at the fort board. Hope someone there can help you.

    I would post on the camping board as well as you are more likely to get better responses. I do remember hearing a long time ago that the kennels at WDW were for daytime use only, and they do not keep animals there overnight. Seems like it makes it kind of pointless, unless you're staying outside of disney property somewhere that allows pets?
