I’ve just read about the new policy on allowing dogs in some guest rooms at some on-property resorts.
Two thoughts . . .
First, it makes me sad because I’d so love to take my dog to WDW, but getting him from the UK to Florida is the hard part.
But second, $75 per night at Yacht Club? Are you kidding me? I only ever stay at dog friendly hotels in the UK and I do so perhaps half a dozen times a year. They’re always upscale hotels and I’m outraged if I’m asked to pay more than £10 (=$10) a night. Excuse me, but $75 is taking the pee.
Many hoteliers will tell you that it’s humans who create the most mess in hotel rooms, not dogs. Most dog owners — especially the ones who spend thousands of dollars on a vacation and love their dogs enough to take them with them — are super-responsible.
I do not believe for a second that having a dog in a room costs Disney $75 per night in extra cleaning costs. This is price gouging pure and simple.
