101 Canines Raise the Woof at Walt Disney World Resort Today During First-Ever Disney Side Dog’s Day at Magic Kingdom
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla - (August 30, 2014) – Poodles, Yorkies, Beagles -101 dogs in all -joined their owners and pranced thru 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.
