    How would you get a pet to the pet sitting facility if you are camping without a car?

    I'm a bit puzzled. How would your pet have got to the camp site if you don't have a car with you?

    If we are there at the Fort with an RV but no car. I know you can't bring a pet on a golf cart, or at least that is what I have been told, or that might be an option. My question is referring to going to say MK for some hours and not wanting to leave the pet in the RV.

    Look up Best Friends Pet Care at WDW, but without a car, not sure how you will get your pet there.

    Your only two options really are to either leave your pet in the camper, or to find the miracle taxi/uber that will allow you to take your pet. If there is a third option, I just can't think of it right now.

    Oh, duh! Sorry, didn't think about RVs. And no, I don't have any other ideas beyond an Uber / Lyft / Taxi that will take a dog.

    Hire a pet sitter that will come and stay in your RV with your pet?

    How big is your dog?

    A Cairn terrier, about 20 pounds. I don't think I would feel comfortable with someone being in my RV. This makes me think that perhaps I should just get a tow apparatus for a small car so that I would have the option available. Thanks for the suggestions all! I really love my dog and hate to leave him for any length of time but I so enjoy being in the park(s) too.

    Option #3 - hire a pet sitter (or board) and leave your dog at home. He/she will be safer.

    I guess you can also just rent a car while there. But I am for leaving pets at home.

    You should perhaps stay at one of Universal's Loews resorts instead of at Disney. They are dog friendly there.

    Maybe you can stop at Car Care Center BEFORE you set up RV and rent a car. That way you would have a car to do something that weren't planned or, if it were me, I would want a car for piece of mind in an emergency.
