    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Four hotels at Walt Disney World Resort will allow guests to bring dogs beginning Sunday.

    The hotels near Orlando, Florida, are Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney Port Orleans Resort-Riverside, Disney's Art of Animation Resort and cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. The Yacht Club adds $75 to daily room rates for canine guests, the other three, $50.

    The pilot program is accepting reservations through October 2018. Two dogs are permitted per guest room.

    A Pluto's Welcome Kit includes a mat, bowls, pet ID tag, plastic bags, puppy pads, and dog walking maps. Doggy day care and other pet services are offered nearby at Best Friends, an on-property pet care facility.

    Disney says dogs staying in its hotels "must be well behaved, leashed in resort public areas and properly vaccinated."
