    We are going on the Disney dream for a 3 night Bahamian cruise. There will be 3 of us (me, husband & 7 yr. old daughter), I would like to Pre-pay our gratuities but don't know how much is recommended or required. Just wanting to plan ahead.

    Hi Jennifer!
    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel!

    Gratuities onboard a Disney Cruise are a way to thank the crew for providing you with fabulous service during your sailing. Pre-paying your gratuities is a great idea, and it's just one less thing to think about on your vacation. There's a gratuity chart on the DCL website here, that gives you a suggested guideline for tipping amounts.

    Remember, you can make adjustments to your final gratuity amounts at any time. We usually find that we have several folks that go above and beyond, and we want to thank them accordingly! All you need to do is stop by Guest Services Desk at any time during your cruise to make adjustments.

    I hope this helps! Hope you have a magical vacation on the Disney Dream! - Diane W.
