    Are tips included in the dining plans?

    Hello, Margo! 

    The Disney Dining Plan is such a fun way to experience some of Walt Disney World® Resorts best restaurants! And with several different plans to choose from, you'll surely find one that meets your family's needs best. 

    For Dining Plans that allow you to enjoy Table Service dining experiences, gratuity and specialty drinks are not included in the price of your plan - you pay out-of-pocket at the time of your reservation. Of course, the Quick Service Dining Plan is for use at Quick Service restaurants, so no need to worry about gratuity at these locations. Select the highlighted link above for more information.

    My family's favorite plan is the Deluxe Dining Plan. This option allows you to enjoy three Table Service dining locations and two snacks daily. We love eating breakfast in our room and saving entitlements for the opportunity to dine at Signature Dining locations (which takes 2 table service credits), such as California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. What a treat to dine at some of the finest locations on property! 

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance, Margo! The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help you plan a magical vacation.

    Happy Dining!
