    We have just booked a 2 week stay at Saratoga Spings in 2012 and have got the DDP the 1 table, over counter and snack plan,as there is 2 adults and one child what i would like to know is when we are having a table service meal do we need to tip 18% ?

    Parties of six or more have an automatic 18% gratuity added to their bill, Frank, but since your party only consists of three guests there will not be an automatic gratuity.  You are free to tip what you feel is appropriate (generally 15-20%).  There is sometimes confusion as to whether or not gratuity is covered for guests on the dining plan.  Just to clarify, the dining plan does not cover tip.  I hope that clears things up for you!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
