A new, big resort has open on property. Is it a new DVC resort? No. Is it a Disney resort? Kind of (it's independently owned and operated, but it's on Disney property). Is it open to all guests? Nope.
It is a new resort.... for pets!
Yes, a big new hotel has opened just yesterday (WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 1st, 2010).
Here you are the news from the Disney Parks Blog:
Luxury Pet Resort Opens at Walt Disney World Resort
You better believe there are some pooches being pampered tonight at Walt Disney World Resort. Our new luxury pet resort officially opened its doors today and the first guests are already enjoying the VIP suites and special extras like story time with staff. Earlier this summer, we told you about the one-of-a-kind Best Friends Pet Care facility located across from Disney’s Port Orleans Resort -Riverside. Now, we have a first look around:
There’s a 1,300-square-foot “canines only” splash-and-play water feature and areas where you can sit, relax and watch your dog play. The entire park is secure from outsiders and is available for use after dark.
A la carte activities for pets range from one-on-one playtimes and social playgroup with other dogs to cuddle time and bedtime stories with staff. Other amenities and upgrades include ice cream treats, bottled water and premium orthopedic bedding.
The pet resort can accommodate as many as 300 pets for both daytime and overnight boarding. For more information or to make a reservation, check out www.bestfriendspetcare.com or call 877-4-WDW-PETS.

Well, what can we say, now even your "best friends" can have their own vacation!
Nice idea, but it has to cost a lot...
