    Hi when dining at table service restaurants as a party of 6 with 4 adults and 2 infants are you automatically charged 18% gratuity? One of my infants will not be eating as they are too young, does that make a difference in how your charged? Thank you

    Hi Kelly!   Are you getting excited for your magical getaway?  It will be here before you know.   Walt Disney World is such a great place to make memories with your family that will last a lifetime.

    Kelly, when making your Advanced Dining Reservations please include both infants in the number of Guests.  This allows for the the infants to be in a safe spot at a large enough table during your meal.   Even if one child will not be eating they must be included in the dining reservation.   Please note that strollers are not allowed inside of Table Service restaurants, so come prepared to use a high chair, or have a baby carrier with you.

    Parties of 6 will automatically have an 18% gratuity added to their final bill.   Even infants who will not be eating are included in the party of six.  So be prepared to have this gratuity added to all bills at Table Service restaurants including buffet locations.   I'm so happy you asked this questions, it always helps to know what to budget for ahead of time.  

    I hope this has helped with your pre-planning, Kelly.  Stop by again with any other questions you may have about your vacation.
