Default Doggies at Disney! - Live trip report

Who ~ the pups: Buzz and Dakota, Kenneth, me (Sherry), my two older sisters: Christy and Jaime, my brother-in-law: David, and a very close family friend: Danita

Where ~ Buzz and Dakota will be staying at the Best Friends Pet Resort, in a vacation villa. The rest of us will be at Bay Lake Tower, in a dedicated 2-bedroom villa, standard view.

When ~ September 8 - 15

How ~ driving, in two vehicles

First off, let me introduce you to the doggies!

Here's Buzz. He's approximately six years old. He's a nine-pound black poodle or poodle mix. We adopted him from the animal shelter in Dahlonega, Georgia in October 2010.



Here's Dakota. She's approximately six years old as well (these are the vets' guesses). She is a four-pound white poodle or poodle mix. We got her from some friends that couldn't keep her any longer and were trying to find her a good home. She joined our family in May of this year. Her previous owners found her on the side of the road a couple of years ago.



As far as we know, this will be Buzz and Dakota's first trip to Disney.

We left from Braselton, Georgia at about 2:00 this morning. We stopped at Krispy Kreme for doughnuts and McDonalds for coffee. So far, the dogs have done great riding in the car this long - they've actually been sleeping for most of the ride (just like me ). We should be arriving on Disney property in the next couple of hours. I'm wondering which check-in goes smoother: Best Friends or BLT? I'm hoping that BLT has the check-in process down to a science by now. I'm just glad we're not arriving during the first week that check-in has moved into BLT.

yea! i love this and can't wait to hear more! great pics!

i have five dogs, four rescue, one as a puppy (first in 30 years, a miniature poodle, my favorite breed, darcy), also most recent adoption is a little maltese (joey). these two dogs look a lot like yours!

we're also in ga (athens, area) and think it's groovy that your dogs are going on vacation with you. have a wonderful time!

This is the first dog-oriented TR I've read-very interesting already!

One of our dogs (a 15 lb miniature poodle named Carmen) is really good in the car and just sleeps, but our rescue chihuahua, Figment, whines and wiggles so much we're about having him in the car anymore.

Looking forward to reading more!
