    I have a total party of 8. 2 of my 8 will be under 2 when we visit Disney. When dining will the automatic gratuity be added beings I have a total party of 8?

    Greetings, Whitney!

    We are thrilled to assist you with another great Disney dinning question. Thank you so much for coming back to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Walt Disney World Resort table-service dining locations add an automatic 18% gratuity charge for parties of 6 or more, so yes, it will be added to your party, even without the consideration of your two youngest. 

    We've often traveled with a larger party comprised of my parents and my little ones, so I'm happy to recommend a couple of my favorite dining locations for our group. The Garden Grill Restaurant is one of the best Character Dining locations, in my opinion. The food is incredible, much fresh from the greenhouses of Living with Land, and who doesn't love seeing Farmer Mickey and friends? What I especially like about this location when with a big group is that the large booths fit everyone nicely and the rotating restaurant keeps the scenery ever changing-- perfect for curious kiddos who like to people watch. Another Epcot must-do for our family is Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. They have the best pizza I have ever eaten and sharing a couple large pies is a super affordable way to feed a large group.

    Have a wonderful vacation, Whitney, and please come see us again soon if there is anything else we are able to assist you with in planning your next magical adventure.
