Embarking on a vacation to Orlando, FL, means heading into warm, subtropical climes and plenty of attractions to fill the days. But when we want to bring our pets along for the trip, there are special considerations and some are points specific to Orlando. With a little preparation, your Florida trip should be fun for both you and your companion.
Finding a hotel in Orlando that allows pets is only the first step. It's important to note that while some hotels do allow pets but do not really go out of their way to make them feel welcome, many hotels in Orlando have special amenities just for the four legged guests. Some hotels do go above and beyond, offering treats, a special fenced in pet area, doggy beds and food bowls. Several of the hotels near the attractions have dog walking areas near the hotels and a couple even feature dog-specific room service menu items.
One key consideration is that Orlando hotels often have limitations on the size of dog that can be allowed, and while some hotels in other cities consider large dogs to be 'larger than 70 pounds', the limitation here can be no dogs over 30 pounds. Check ahead of time to make sure that your companion will be accommodated.
Also, remember that Florida is a subtropical climate with heavy humidity. Just as with humans, pets who have special health conditions or are overweight may need additional care and considerations. Walking your pet in Orlando may be best done in the earlier, cooler part of the day. Major theme parks can become quite hot and crowded at peak times, so any pets should be allowed to cool off as much as possible. Keeping pets cool and happy is a vital piece of pre-business planning that should help you and your pet avoid any problems.
Since the city of Orlando is situated so much around travelers attending the major parks, do a little reconnaissance ahead of time to make sure there are nearby emergency vet facilities near your hotel as well.
