    Does the automatic 18% gratuity for tables of 6 include the meals that are buffet or family style such as Crystal Palace and 'Ohana?

    Hello Jerry!
    It sounds like you are planning your next Walt Disney World vacation!  My son and I love dining at Table Service restaurants on our Walt Disney World vacations!  For parties of six or more there is an automatic 18% gratuity added to all Table Service Meals. This applies to all Table Service meals even buffet or family style such as Crystal Palace and 'Ohana. There is no gratuity added for Quick Service Meals. I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is totally amazing in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
