Walt Disney World went to the dogs, literally! Our sweet L is such a huge animal lover. She would have been in dog heaven surrounded by dogs at the most magical place on Earth. How cool would it have been to show-up and see dogs taking over Main Street?
101 dogs joined their owners and pranced through Magic Kingdom as part of a Disney Side Dog’s Day at Magic Kingdom today before park hours at Walt Disney World Resort.
The tail-wagging morning featured a doggie dance party, a walk in the park through Cinderella Castle, a costume contest, doggie treats and more.
While Disney has a special allegiance to dogs, the event was private. Dog owners participated in a special “Show Your Disney Side” online photo contest, showing their pets dressed whimsically as Disney pirates and princesses, heroes and villains.
Pooches walked the green carpet and joined in a dog jam dance party with beloved Disney dogs like Pluto and Bolt.
The production was part of Animal Planet’s AMERICA’S CUTEST: DISNEY SIDE HOWL-O-WEEN special scheduled to premiere October 18. The hour-long special hosted by actor and pet lover John O’Hurley (Seinfeld, Family Feud) will feature humorous video clips celebrating the Disney Side of pets and their owners.
