Service dog relief areas at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World

Service dog relief areas at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World

Service dogs may relieve themselves in any open outdoor area as long as their owners pick up after them and leave the area clean. There are also relief areas designated for service dogs to relieve themselves throughout the parks.  Where ever your service animal ends up relieving themselves, be sure to be a courteous guest and pick up after them. Here is a list for each park:

Disneyland Resort

Esplanade: Kennel Club


  • Frontierland – Frontierland/Fantasyland transition area: Easy to access.
  • Fantasyland – Planter across from “Small World”: This area is filled with soft grass and a fire hydrant; however, because Disneyland is now using the area in front of this relief area as a reserved seating area for certain parades, it is not easy to get to.  We had to go through several lines of ropes and people who were in line for Small World to access this spot.  Not too bad for someone on foot but extremely hard for someone in a wheelchair.
  • New Orleans Square – Fountain area planter on the right near the Train Station and Haunted Mansion.  This is another hard-to-access area, especially for wheelchairs, as the overflow line for the Haunted Mansion blocks it.
  • Central Plaza service animal break area is located between Main Street and Pixie Hollow.  Not a large area and is often blocked because of people waiting for a parade.

California Adventure:

  • Grizzly Peak – Behind Grizzly River Run next to the smoking section (near the “Grizzly Peak Pass” sign):  This is an excellent location as it isn’t confined to a small area, nor is it ever blocked by crowds.
  • A Bug’s Land – Flik’s Fun Fair, main path on the left: Easy to access.
  • Paradise Pier – Access gate between Seaside Souvenirs and The Little Mermaid- Ariel’s Undersea Adventure extended queue.  Easy to access except when there is a parade.
