    Almost there, so thank you for the help you been over the last few months! Something I don't remember, if you have the DDP for sitdown service, does that automatically cover gratuity @ the buffet/all you can eat restaurants? Or do you do that seperate?

    Hi, Jeff!

    With a few exceptions, you will need to pay gratuities on your table service meals at Walt Disney World when on the Disney Dining Plan. 

    Here are your exceptions where gratuities are included:
    -Cinderella's Royal Table
    -Dinner Shows (Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Spirit of Aloha, Mickey's Backyard BBQ.)

    You can pay for your gratuities with cash, credit card, Disney Gift Card, or charge to your Key to the World card, whatever is most convenient.  If your party consists of 6 or more guests, an automatic 18% gratuity will be added to your bill.
