    Carter from LA Asked

    If I were to book my flight and WDW hotel through Allegiant, would I still be eligible to obtain the dining plan through Disney? The hotel I plan on booking with Allegiant is the WDW Swan Resort. Assuming it is a WDW property hotel, maybe it will work?

    It's great to hEAR from you again, Carter!  While The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts are on Disney property, they are not actually operated by the Disney Company. Guests staying at these Resorts are not eligible for the Disney Dining Plan. However, guests staying at both the Dolphin and Swan Resorts are eligible for Extra Magic Hours and complimentary transportation to all Disney theme parks and Downtown Disney. I called The Walt Disney Travel Company to verify my information for you regarding booking through Allegiant Air and your eligibility for the Disney Dining Plan if you were to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort that is owned and operated by Disney. The Disney Agent that I spoke with said that if you book your flight and hotel through Allegiant Air,  then you would need to contact them directly to see if they are able to add the Disney Dining Plan for you. I was informed that you would most likely not be eligible to add the Disney Dining Plan. If the Disney Dining Plan is important to you and you find that is not an option through Allegiant Air, you may want to contact the Walt Disney World Travel Company at (407) W-DISNEY and book your vacation through Disney directly. I also wanted to mention that in the past Allegiant Air has flown into Orlando Sanford International Airport rather than the Orlando International Airport (MCO). Disney's Magical Express is not available to guests flying into Sanford Airport. Follow the link I have provided to learn more.  hope this information helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions that we can assist you with.  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Carter!
    Happy Planning,
