    I booked the dining plus plan. Do they have any limit price with entree you choose in the restaurant? Also how to pay for the graduity of 4 guests?

    Hello again, Grace!

    You're going to love the Dining Plan!  If you had planned on eating in the parks, at your resort or even at Downtown Disney, this plan will not only save you money, but it will also afford you the opportunity to order whatever entree you'd like from the menu, regardless of cost, because it's included in the plan!

    Here's how this works. Most restaurants "cost" one Table-Service entitlement per person for a meal (entree, non-alcoholic beverage and dessert). We always order the most delicious-looking items from each of these categories, without worrying about the price on the menu. The only exceptions to this is when there is an entree that is meant for two people, in which case you'd be using two entitlements. If you're ever unsure of something that's on the menu, the Cast Member serving you will be happy to explain.

    If you look at the 2012 Disney Dining Plan, scroll down to where you see "Signature Restaurants" listed. These restaurants' menus offer more luxurious fare, with prices that match, so these locations require 2 Table-Service entitlements per person to dine there. (Fairytale Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table also requires two.)

    Regarding gratuity, that same PDF file included above gives a great explanation of how to do this. Guests should calculate what they would have given as a gratuity had they been paying out-of-pocket for their meal. To help you do so, a receipt will be provided to you, when you finish your meal, with the actual costs of each item in your order.  You may choose to pay for this with cash, credit card or, of course, if you enabled charging privileges on your Key to the World Card at check-in, you can simply charge the gratuities to your room.

    You are in for a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World! Please send more questions as you think of them! I'd love to help!
