    The Disney site says 18% gratuity is automatically added to parties of 6 or more. Got that. However, it also says that gratuity will be added to the credit card on file. Does this mean it's automatically charged and I have no option to pay with cash?

    Hi, Katie! No, it will not automatically be charged to the card on file unless you pay with a Disney Dining Plan and don't provide for gratuity another way. Once you have enjoyed your meal, you can pay for it (and your gratuity) using any method you prefer.  You can leave it on the card with which you originally booked the experience, or you could choose to pay cash, use a different credit card, pay with traveler's checks, redeem Disney Dollars or Disney Gift Cards, or, if applicable, utilize Disney Dining Plan credits. Simply tell the Cast Member serving you how you'd like to make your payment.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
