Best Friends Pet Care, the new luxury pet care facility at the Walt Disney World Resort, is now planned to open its doors Wednesday, September 1 2010.
The existing kennels located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort will begin to close as follows:
  • Kennels at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios close to walk-ups September 1.
  • Kennels at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground and Magic Kingdom (Transportation and Ticket Center) close to walk-ups September 2.

From September 1 on, Guests’ pets with new reservations for Best Friends Pet Care will be hosted at the new facility.
