Service Animals

At Walt Disney World Resort, a service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, an individual with a disability.Service animals must be under the control of the owner at all times and should remain on a leash or in a harness. Cast Members are not able to take control of service animals.Due to the nature of some attractions, service animals may not be permitted to ride. At these locations, please ask a Cast Member about available options, including rider switch with a member of your party or a portable kennel.Service animals are not allowed in the water—including water features and fountains—or closer than 4 feet to the water on wet decks.For more information, please contact Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 or email disability.services@disneyparks.com.
