    With the dining plan, do you have to pay the tip with cash or credit card, or is it included with the dining plan?

    Hello, Ann! 

    Welcome back! When enjoying meals on the Disney Dining Plan, gratuities for table service and buffet dining locations are not included in the price of your plan. You will need to pay separately via cash, credit card, gift card, or with your MagicBand.

    When you receive your bill, there will be a suggested tip amount based on the 18% and 20% averages, but you can decide what type of gratuity you would like to leave your server. You'll find these suggested amounts toward the bottom of your receipt. 

    Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any additional questions. The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help!
