Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi! Love the panel! Just wondered what is the dining tax rate in Walt Disney World? Thanks!
- - Asked by MARY from South Carolina on 6/5/2008
Thanks for the fun question. I had a few dining receipts from recent WDW trips, so I calculated the tax rate from the restaurants. Most of them turned out to be 6.5%, but I couldn't figure out why my receipts from the All Star resorts were showing 7%.
After a little research, I found out an interesting little fact about WDW...it actually covers two counties. Most of WDW is in Orange County, where the tax rate is 6.5%. However the All Star resorts are in Osceola County, which has a 7% tax rate.
So, in general, the WDW sales tax rate (including restaurants) is 6.5%, but if you happen to be at the All Star resorts, you'll get the "pleasure" of contributing just a tiny bit more to Osceola County! ;-)
Thanks for helping me learn another obscure fact about WDW! ºoº
