Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- .We are a party of 6 using the dining plan so I realize table service restaurants will add gratuity to our bill. However, I just read that gratuity is included at Cinderella's Royal Table, is this true for a party of 6 also?

- Hi Elizabeth!
Cinderella's Royal Table is an amazing dining experience, the magic of dining inside Cinderella Castle will be a precious memory indeed! Disney's table-service locations automatically add an 18% gratuity for parties of 6 or more, but there are a few locations where the gratuity is already included in the price of the meal. Cinderella's Royal Table, Hoop-Dee-Do Musical Revue and Disney's Spirit of Aloha dinner show all include gratuity with the cost of your meal no matter the size of your dining party, although you may want to include a little extra for special service as these cast member are fabulous! As with any dining experience, I recommend double checking your final bill to make sure that the tip is indeed included.
When planning my own vacations, I like to keep my tip budget separate in order to make it easier at the end of my meals. Using a Disney Gift Card is a great and very convenient way to pay for tips at Walt Disney World. Disney Gift Cards are very useful keeping your budget in check and they can be used just about everywhere on Walt Disney World property. I will typically mark my Disney Gift Cards with a Sharpie indicating "tips" or "children's spending money" as this is also a great way to keep children aware of their shopping allowance. The holiday season can be a good time to stock up on Disney Gift Cards as many retailers will offer incentives for purchasing gift cards this time of year.
I hope you have an amazing vacation, Elizabeth and please visit us again if you have anymore questions!
