    Hi, Amy!   You are putting my math skills to work on this one!   So let's assume dinner for an adult averages $30, and $10 per child age 3 and over (kids under 3 can share an adult plate for free.)   We'll round that up to being about $150 per meal, and an 18% tip would be about $27.   This is just an estimate.  Some meals will be a bit more pricey, so budget accordingly.

    Your meals at Mickey's Backyard BBQ and Cinderella's Royal Table have gratuities included in the price so you don't have to tip at those locations. 

    To get an idea of what the price of a meal is per person so you can get a more exact dollar amount on tipping, go to and click on DINING.  Restaurants with their menus and pricing are listed.  

    Disney makes tipping very easy.  At the end of your meal, you will receive your check.  Any "extras" that you ordered that are not included in your dining plan will be listed.   There will also be a suggested tipping amounts.    You can pay for your extras and gratuities with cash, credit, or charge to your Key to the World card.  Your remaining number of dining credits will also be listed.  

    Hope this helps and enjoy your meals at WDW.  It looks like you have some great locations planned!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
