Pluto never had it so good: The next major attraction to open at Walt Disney World won’t be for the kids — it will be for the dogs.
Best Friends Pet Resort, scheduled to open Aug. 27, will offer boarding, bedtime stories and a water park for dogs.
The luxury facility has room for 270 dogs, 30 cats and assorted other animals. Standard indoor boarding for dogs runs $37 nightly. Upgrades include vacation villas with outdoor patios and flat-screen TVs for watching videos like “Homeward Bound,” or 226-square-foot luxury suites ($76) with private outdoor play yards and personal pet concierges.
Meanwhile, human visitors will have to dig deeper into their pockets to visit the Orlando theme park. Disney World has raised the price of a one-day, one-park adult ticket to $82, up from $79.
