    Concerning the 'Tables in Wonderland' card; is the 18% gratuity optional or in any way removable, as it seems a very large amount considering that, although rarely, service is sometimes below par? If we had to pay this every meal it'd be a real put-off.

    Hi Joel!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Tables in Wonderland is a great discount card.  I love mine!  18% is the standard across the United States these days and I personally think it is usually well deserved.  However, you are absolutely right that sometimes, unfortunately, service is not what it should be.  In those cases, you can definitely ask that a less amount be used.  However, you will have to request that each time.  Otherwise, it is an automatic 18% gratuity. 

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
