The early morning event 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 dance party with Disney dogs like Pluto, Bolt and yes, even Stitch.
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.
