I’ve taken my dog to WDW several times and always used the Epcot kennel. In 2002, they were the only kennel that offered dog walking service, however in 2006, they didn’t. I think at the time, they were the only kennel that allowed overnight boarding. Another good thing about Epcot’s kennel is that you can park right outside and walk to the main gate. This area is reserved for AAA package guests, the kennel, and I think also handicapped.
I believe they provided food, but I brought my own from home, as well as his bowls and treats. If your dog has a favorite toy or special blanket, bring that as well. They have three size cages inside the air conditioned kennel itself and something like a dozen (maybe more) runs outside for larger dogs. Usually these are lightly used and we were able to find one near the A/C vent, and they are covered so they don’t get soaked in the rain. Boris needed to be in one of the runs because he just was very unhappy in the inside cages. I guess being able to see outside and also having more room calmed him down. I was able to get over and walk him after the parks closed, but you need to call security to let you in, the kennels are unmanned from an hour after park close until an hour before park open. But I did have to make my way back to Epcot a few times each day to take care of my baby. (Baby? 126 pounds and as tall as me on his hind legs. I guess old man is more appropriate)
When they did walk the dogs, it was fee extra.
It broke my heart having to shove him in there, but I didn’t want to leave him home alone either, especially in 2006 when he was getting pretty old and having lots of problems with his arthritis. But he did like the drive up. He also liked the Hard Rock better. I guess it had something to do with being allowed to stay in our room.
