    My parents kept their dog (aka my "brother") in the kennels at Epcot on a numbe of occasions. If you knew how much their dog menat to them, you'd understand their hesitation to leave him. However, they were quite comfortable and happy with the "accomodations" as well as the staff, food, etc.

    I also tried to stay at the kennels myself to save a few bucks, ("get you can an AP discount here?") but I just wasn't happy with the size of their pool.

    The Kennels cost:
    $6/day for day guests
    $11/day for overnight non-resort guests (like Shades of Green)
    $9/day for Disney resort guests
    What I say 100 times each day:

    I recommend using the Epcot kennel if you can. There's a lot of great walking areas. Especially if you go walk along the canal that's hidden behind the trees. There are lots of gopher turtle holes that our dogs like to poke their heads into. The one at Animal Kingdom isn't bad, and our dogs love getting to ride the tram for that one. MGM isn't that great. The one I really avoid if at all possible is the one at TTC. It's the oldest and is very noisy. There is decent walking space there if you don't mind crossing the street to a nice big field.

    Fort Wilderness

    Fort Wilderness has great kennels and they are away from the hustle and bustle. My parents used them some time ago.

    Wow, the kennels actually give dogs stuff to do? I thought they were like the vet! I might actually bring my dog one time. Unfortunately, my mom never wants to bring Louie along for the WDW vacation.

    Question: Can someone explain what happens when you take your pet to the vet and the rules? My weenie Goofy always has to stay alone at home and I hate that and I know he must too. I am considering bringing him and keeping him in a kennel but I don't know much about it. Thanks!

    Spicey stays there often FW or Epcot.

    Like FW a little better. there is a cm at Epcot who tries to get you to take your pet to an offsite kennel...spicey likes to walk at night. Offsite kennels close at 5 pm - I have told her this a thousand times - but she still kept trying....

    anyway - FW is very nice. they do their best to kept everything clean.

    Spicey likes it here. He eats better here than at home....

    they can't play with them. too many dogs and cats - too few CM.... generally there are only one or two at FW. they also take care of the guest wanting the horseback riding. and doing Oct - the 'haunted wagon ride'....

    anyway - the kennels are different sizes.

    here is the information
    http://www.wdwinfo.com/tips_for_touring/kennels.htm

    if you want someone to really treat your pet well - then the offsite ones are nice

    Lake buena vista is where WDW is - so that is where their kennels are located.

    the town close by are Kissimmee and Orlando.

    Spicey is there for ME!!! he also enjoys it. but I need him closer than the offsite - and besides they do close at night.

    He did not do well at the Vet kennel, also tried pet sitters. my other two cats stay at home with friends, families or neighbor plus on longer trips a pet sitter and do fine...
