    We are a family of 6 people ( 3 adults, 2 kids and an infant of 1 year ) Does the baby counts as a 6th person in order to book a table and in that case is the 18% tip compulsory? Enviado desde mi iPhone

    Hello there, Luciana! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop back by and ask another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    Deciding on how to appropriate count your dining reservation party can definitively be tricky when including the littlest Guests! However, when making your dining reservations, be sure to always include each Guest regardless of their age. The actual Guest number you provide does not necessarily indicate the number of people that will be eating but, instead, represents the amount of space you will be needing at your table. So, even if your youngest child will not be dining with you, they will still need a place at the table!

    Since you will be including all of your children in your dining reservation, that will place you into the "6 or more Guests" category and an automatic 18% tip will be added to your final check. That being said, it is not uncommon to leave tips around 20% for servers in the United States. So, if you have an absolutely phenomenal experience, feel free to leave more than the automatic 18% gratuity! I know I often end up receiving amazing service any time my family and I dine at Walt Disney World Resort!

    I hope this assists you in continuing to plan for your visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
