At Best Friends, Being Board is Fun.
Come. Sit. Stay a while. After a short time at Best Friends, your wish for a “good dog” is our command.
The Best Friends Facility at Walt Disney World® offers a wide variety of accommodations to satisfy the needs of any pet guest, whether staying for the day or as an overnight guest for a week. All suites are designed to provide comfort and privacy for our pets. Suites are cleaned with hospital grade disinfectants, and freshened daily.
Focus on Safety
We take note of your pet’s special needs and we monitor each guest closely throughout the day.
We require a document on your veterinarian’s stationery showing that your pet’s inoculations are current. You may bring a copy with you to show us a check-in, or you may ask your vet’s office to fax it to us in advance at 203-840-5207.
Requirements for Dogs: DHPPv/DA2PPv, Rabies, and Bordetella. Both Canine Influenza vaccines (H3N2 and H3N8) are required for any dogs attending Day Camp and/or any group play. Also, there is a seven-day waiting period after the 2nd booster before they can attend group play.
Requirements for Cats: FVRCP (Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia) and Rabies
Any medical needs or medications must be disclosed to our staff in advance so that we can provide the best care for your pet.
Please note that while we welcome all breeds for Individual Play & Stay, certain breeds may not participate in Play & Stay Groups nor will any known aggressive dogs.

Indoor-Outdoor 2-Room Accommodations: These accommodations include a climate-controlled indoor bedroom with a pet cot, and an outdoor patio, which is protected from the elements. Dogs have unlimited access to their patios during the daytime for most of the year. During peak summer temperatures, however, to protect the dogs from the heat, the patio doors are opened four times during the day for access to the patio.

Vacation Villas: Our fourteen two-room villas provide an 8ft x 9ft (72 sq ft) tiled bedroom, with a raised platform bed and doggy-eye-level flat panel TV. Each villa also has a private outdoor 4ft x 7ft (28 sq ft) relief patio. The Vacation Villa boarding experience includes 1 Potty Walk, 1 Playgroup Session and Turn-Down Service each day all overseen by a personal pet concierge.
VIP Luxury Suites: For the ultimate in pampered pet boarding, we offer our four 226 sq ft super luxury suites. These suites provide a 16ft x 9ft bedroom, with paw print floors and tile walls, glass doors, a raised platform bed and flat panel television, programmed for your pet’s entertainment. Each suite also comes with a private covered outdoor play yard, where pets can enjoy private play time with their family, or with their personal “pet concierge”. This all-inclusive boarding experience includes a wide range of daily complimentary activities: 2 Potty Walks, 2 Playgroup sessions and Bed Time Story each day, all overseen by a personal “pet concierge”. Guests in our Super Luxury suites may also enjoy a complimentary “Go Home Fresh” bath after a 3-day minimum stay*.
Kitty City is designed to be a sanctuary for our feline friends. Housed in a separate wing of the building, it is protected from the sights, sounds and smells of dogs.
We have accommodations for up to 24 kitty guests, who can relax in your choice of a two-room or four-room condos, and watch the world through their windows. Each condo has a separate, private relief area; and all condos are individually vented to outdoors for the health of our guests.
Pocket Pets: We strive to care for many types of family pets…within reason of course! Our facility provides a safe little haven for “pocket pets” such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and ferrets. Pet parents must provide their own housing/cage and all supplies (food, bowls, litter, etc.) for their pocket pet.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate venomous pets or primates of any kind.
*When boarding multiple pets in a VIP Luxury Suite, only one of the pets will receive a complimentary Go Home Fresh Bath. The choice of the pet is at Best Friends discretion.Rates
