    I'm confused about gratuity at the restaurants. I see that parties of 6 or more get automatic 18% gratuity and that tipping at quick service places is not required. Are there any other instances when a gratuity is automatic?

    Hi Cindy!  Most gratuities at Walt Disney World are individually based.  Yes, with parties if 6 or more, an 18% gratuity is added.  This is also the case for items that are not covered by the Disney Dining Plan such as alcoholic beverages.  These will incur an 18% gratuity.  
    Keep in mind that special dining experiences, such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Dinner shows (Hoop-De-Do and Spirit of Aloha) have gratuities included in the price.
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
