    We have the 2018 Disney Dining Plan. Does Cinderellas Castle still include the gratuity in it? And does Be Our Guest dinner include it now that they have went to a 2 table service credit? Thank You!!

    Hi Fallon!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant inside the Beast's enchanted castle and Cinderella's Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle are two of the most magical places to dine in all of the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Luckily, being able to experience these magical dining options is even easier with one of the Dining Plans!  Both Cinderella's Royal Table and dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant require two Table-Service Dining Entitlements per person.  Although it is always subject to change, currently, for Cinderella's Royal Table, gratuity is included, but for Be Our Guest Restaurant, gratuity is not included.

    When using the Disney Dining Plan, currently, gratuity is only included at Dinner Shows, with Private In-Room Dining, and at Cinderella's Royal Table.  This means that you will need to have an additional form of payment at all other dining locations in order to be able to add gratuity.  If you added a credit card to your reservation when you checked in so that you could charge expenses to your room, you should be able to use this method to add gratuity.  Remember that an 18 percent gratuity will be added to the bill automatically for parties including six or more Guests, and gratuity may also be automatically added to your bill if you choose to order items that are not included in the Disney Dining Plan.

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
