Default Actuator disk for fan boundary condition in Fluent

I am creating a mesh for an aircraft in ANSYS Meshing for simulation in Fluent. I am simulating only half the aircraft and will apply symmetry condition.

I need to incorporate an actuator disk using the fan boundary condition in Fluent to simulate a propeller. This study will only have axial flow through the disk and no tangential flow. Hence, my symmetry condition is explained.

How do I create the mesh and the body for the fan?
Can I include the complete disk in ANSYS and then use some method to cut it in half with my domain body?
Should it be a surface? Or should I boolean subtract it out of the fluid domain?
