Four hotels at Walt Disney World Resort will allow guests to bring dogs beginning Sunday.

Starting October 15, for the first time ever, four Disney resort properties will be designated as "dog-friendly".

Disney's Yacht Club, Art of Animation, and Port Orleans Riverside Resorts will now allow pets, along with the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

Upon arrival, beloved dogs will receive their own Pluto's Welcome Kit, which includes a mat, bowls, a pet ID tag, plastic disposable bags, puppy pads and a dog-walking map.

Pups will get access to outdoor pet exercise and relief areas, Disney said, and an aptly named Pluto's Welcome Kit. Also included: a Pluto "Do Not Disturb" door hanger indicating to hotel staff that a pet is in the room.

There is also doggie daycare and other pet services offered nearby at an on-property, full-service pet care facility called "Best Friends".

Four Walt Disney Resorts are going pet-friendly.

Guests are encouraged to only bring good boys or girls to the resort: All pets must be well-behaved, leashed while in public areas and vaccinated.

After the news, some expressed concerns about how the hotels would handle those guests with severe animal allergies in light of the new policy. The pet-cleaning rate will be $75 per night at Yacht Club and $50 at the other three available options. Vaccinations must also be up to date.
