Walt Disney World Now Allows Guests To Bring Horses Into The Park

According to a recent update in the Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules, Disney World is now permitting guests to bring horses into the park. Yes, you heard that right, you can now bring your horse with you to any Disney park. In addition, you can also bring your horse with you on rides where permitted.

This makes me think “which rides could you safely bring a horse onto?” I guess she would feel at home on the Prince Charming Regal Carousel in the Magic Kingdom, but surely, she would not be excited to go on Space Mountain. And where exactly do you take your horse to do its business? What happens if she does her business in the middle of a store. Can you bring your horse into your resort hotel? So many questions come to mind that bringing a horse to Disney not only brings its own set of challenges, but seems to be something that could potentially be a safety hazard to both other guests as well as the horse itself.

Diving a little deeper into the Park Rules, it further clarifies that you can bring Service Animals that are not just horses, but Miniature Horses. Miniature Horses range in size, but are normally around the size of a German Sheppard. Many people keep miniature horses as house pets as they can be house trained and do not grow to be very large.

According to The Guide Horse Foundation, miniature horses makes excellent service animals for the blind. They are not only great for those with a love for horses, they also can help those who have a phobia or an allergy to dogs. With their natural ability to guide others, they tend to perform better than dogs. With a shortage and high cost of training guide dogs, Miniature Guide Horses are a welcome addition to the Service Animal family.

So, the next time you are out at one of the parks, don’t be shocked to see a small horse leading someone around. And most importantly, this horse in working, so like any other service animals, do not let your kids go up and pet the horse.

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .
