    Hello, we are going to Disney World in May 2020. My question is, do we need to tip at Cinderella’s Royal Table with the Disney Dining Plan? I have heard a few different things and just want to be prepared considering this will be a large tip.

    Hello, Megan! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's an honor to help you plan for your upcoming May trip! 

    I have great news about your meal at Cinderella's Royal Table! Gratuity is included with your meal there, so there's no need to budget for an extra cost. Meals there are fantastic, and I'm a big fan of early breakfasts and dinners at Cinderella Castle! 

    The same will happen at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, and at Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    You can start budgeting for your other meals by browsing the menus at other restaurants so that you can have an idea of how much you should set aside for experiences beyond these three locations, Megan. I've always found the online menus to be super helpful, and I hope you like them too! 

    I hope that you have a fantastic trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in May! If you have more questions before the trip, please, let us know, and we will gladly help! 

    May the force be with you,
