    When dining in Disney Parks & using Dining Plan, is gratuity added if you have a large party?

    Hello Terri!

    Thanks for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your magical adventure is just weeks away. You must be getting so excited!  I am glad that you chose to use the Disney Dining Plan. It is a great way to budget and make the trip easier.

    For all parties of 6 or more, an 18% gratuity will be added to all table service meals. When using the Disney Dining Plan, the gratuity for larger groups will be based on what the meal would have actually cost had you not used a Disney Dining Plan.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love to help!

    See ya real soon,
