    Our whole extended family are planning a trip for next summer(group of 16), if we book through a website through Southwest Airlines, can we add the dining plans?

    Hi there, Billy!

    If you’re booking your trip through a third-party site (such as a travel reseller), you must purchase an entire Walt Disney World package vacation – including the dining plan – at the time of your initial booking; you cannot add the plan later if you book on the airline site.

    Currently, the promotion on the Southwest flight does allow you to do this. The verbiage on the site indicates: "Complete your vacation package by adding Disney Theme Park Tickets or a Disney Dining Plan. Click on the "Add-ons" section when booking your vacation to include tickets and/or dining with your package."

    If you book through Disney or an authorized travel agent, in most cases you’ll be able to add the dining plan at any time up through your check-in. This allows some wiggle room not found on other sites.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
