    On the DDP and my question is re:gratuities. I understand these are not incld. w/our table service resv's, so I'm wondering what methods of pmt are accepted for this? Would we be able to use a CC for just the tip, or will we need to have cash on us? Thnks!

    Ni Noell!   I just love the Disney Dining Plan, it is a great way for my family to save about 15% off the cost of meals while we enjoy the Most Magical Place on Earth.     You will be able to pay tips with cash, credit card, or Disney Gift Card.   During most meals my family simply adds the tip to our resort bill, and we take care of the whole tab at the end of our trip.     Please keep in mind that an 18% gratuity will be added automatically for parties of 6 or more at Disney Dining locations.

    I hope you have an amazing vacation filled with lots of delicious meals!  You may even want to use a snack credit to enjoy my families favorite Disney snack, the Dole Whip Float available at Aloha Isle inside the Magic Kingdom.   

    Happy Disney Dining,
