Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • My family ..10 of us are going to Disney Sept.20 for 1 week. We will have dining plans my question is about the18% gratuities. How do you know what an adult meal or childs meal costs! to figure out the tip? Are all meals the same price or do they vary.

  • Hello Helen,
    There's nothing better than a magical group gathering at Walt Disney World Resort, I firmly believe that big family equals big fun!
    You have made a wonderful choice by selecting the 2014 Disney Dining Plan, I love the freedom it represents.  One of the stipulations of the Disney Dining Plan is that tables of 6 diners or more at Table Service restaurants are charged 18% gratuity as standard; although you are free to tip higher for exceptional service. 
    Each Walt Disney World Resort restaurant has it's own unique menu and pricing scale with plenty of dining choices for both adults and children.  At the end of each Table Service meal your server will present you with a check itemizing everything ordered alongside individual prices and bill total; it will also include the calculation of the 18% gratuity.  Gratuity is paid in the usual manor; cash, credit card and so on.
    Of course when dining at Quick Service restaurants there is no gratuity to pay, but you will still receive an itemized receipt for your own records.

    Have a great Disney day & bon appetit
