    I understand that the Swan & Dolphin hotels are not Disney owned, but are on Disney property. Do they still honer the Disney Dining plan? Also, if I upgrade the Dining plan to a deluxe or better, am I saving any money?

    Hi Bill!

    Unfortunately, the Disney Dining Plan is not available for stays at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, however other perks are available. 

    It has been my experience that the Disney Dining Plan is a good budgeting decision. Of course, whether you will save money will depend on what your dining plans are. For example: If you plan to eat mostly Quick-Service meals, then upgrading your meal plan may not be the best decision. We have experienced vacations with and without the Disney Dining Plan and both ways have worked for us and our plans. I hope this helps. 

    Have a magical day!
