New 'luxury pet resort' coming to Walt Disney World
Written by Robert Niles
Okay, I'm way out of my area of experience here, but this item struck me as interesting nevertheless.Tweet
Walt Disney World has announced that it has contracted with a company called Best Friends Pet Care Inc. to build a new, luxury 'pet resort' at Walt Disney World:
Pet guests will enjoy such amenities as luxury suites with television and raised bedding, activities such as nature walks and playgroups, and pampering services ranging from ice cream treats to bedtime stories. The state-of-the-art facility will be located on Bonnett Creek Parkway in the Walt Disney World Resort, and is expected to open in mid-2009.
Full disclosure: I don't have pets, never had had one, don't particularly like having them around in the hotel where I'm staying. That said, if folks want to take their pets along on vacation and have them well cared for, they ought to have that option.
I just have no clue whether this is a great idea, or totally over the top, or how it compares with pet care at other vacation destinations. Pet owners, please chime in with a comment offering your thoughts about pet accommodations during your theme park vacations.
