    Do restaurants add gratuity for large parties? We have 12 going in the fall and are trying to take everyones budget into consideration.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melissa. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a splendid week.

    It's a great idea to budget for a vacation, especially with a large group like yours. For parties larger than 8 people, an automatic 18% gratuity is added to your total bill. Please keep in mind, depending on which table service restaurant you wish to dine in and its dining room size, your party may have to be split into separate tables. I encourage you to speak with a Cast Member when making your dining reservation by calling (714) 781-DINE. You can make dining reservations up to 60 days in advance.

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Melissa. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions with planning your magical vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Sending you Pixie Dust,

I am a wife and mother to 2 children, a 14 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have always enjoyed going to Disneyland Resort as a child and now that I am a mother, I love watching my children experience Disneyland Resort through their eyes. It is a true delight seeing my daughter wear a ball gown walking side by side with Cinderella or my son jumping gleefully after he defeated Darth Maul in a light saber duel! Learn More About Kiki
