    We're on the Deluxe Dining Plan and wondering what kind of cash to bring to the 13 reservations we just made. Do we just cover taxes and tips (including buffets, etc)? Or is anything included in the DDP?

    Hi Josh! Thanks for writing! Taxes are included in your dining plan meals, so all you will need cash for is to pay for the tips. AND, you don't even need cash for those if you have charging privileges to your resort room or Disney dollars. You will also need to pay out of pocket for any additional items you might purchase, including, for example, alcoholic beverages or specialty drinks, appetizers etc. These can be paid by cash, credit Disney gift cards, Disney dollars or charged to your resort room. If you're dining at Cinderella's Royal Table, gratuities are also included with your meals, so you're all set!

    Happy dining Josh!
