    Hello Disney Panel, IF a table of six asks for 3 separate checks will they still be charged the automatic 18% gratuity? Thank You for your help. Have a magical day!

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and what a great question. Sounds like a Walt Disney World vacation is fast approaching, so let's get started.

    It is certainly allowed for the dining bill to be divided, but your party will still be charged the 18% gratuity charge.  If you would like to avoid this charge, you will need to request two separate tables, but please note that you are not guaranteed that your tables will be close to each other and you may find yourself at opposite ends of the restaurant.  I am sure this is not what you are looking for, but I just wanted to include a suggestion. 

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Looking for some unique dining experiences outside of the parks?  Be sure to set some time aside to visit Disney Springs.  Not only does this place have some great dining experiences, the shopping is great, too!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
