    We are coming to disney in 2 weeks,we are trying to calculate our money.My question is we have dining plan including 1 table meal per day,how much tip should we be leaving?And do we need to tip at mickeys bbq and aloha show? Thanks in advance

    Hi Nicola michelle,

    Gratuities are not included with packages that include dining plans—unless otherwise indicated and an automatic18% gratuity charge is added to your bill for parties of 6 or more.

    If your travel party consists of less than 6 Guests, a gratuity charge is not automatically added and the amount of tip that you leave is at your discretion (although a suggested tip of 18% is usually shown on your bill).

    My family usually leave an 18% tip at each of our Table-Service meals unless we have received exceptional service in which case, we may leave 20%.

    The good news is that gratuities are included for all Dinner Shows including Mickey's Backyard BBQ and Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. 

    If you're interested, there is lots of other great information about the Disney Dining Plan available to read on the 2016 Disney Dining Plan brochure.

    Wishing you a magical holiday filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
