Trained service dogs are welcome in most locations throughout the Disneyland® Resort. Guests who use service dogs must retain control of their dogs at all times and must keep them on a leash or harness while visiting.
Cast Members are not authorized to control service dogs. Guests with service dogs should follow the same attraction entrance guidelines as Guests who use wheelchairs.
Due to the nature of some attractions, service dogs may not be permitted to ride. At these locations, please ask a Cast Member about available options, including Rider Switch with a member of your party or a portable kennel.
