    My family and I have reservations at CRT. We did the payment hold with our credit card which included the gratuity. We are planning on redeeming two of our DDP credits though. After they redeem credits, do I need to leave a tip or will credits cover tip?

    Tie your napkin 'round your neck, Brenden, because planDisney is here to help you prepare for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit! Your day at Magic Kingdom Park sounds positively regal because you'll be dining with royalty. Since the realm requires payment, let's look at how that will work.

    I'm happy to hear you'll be using the Disney Dining Plan at the theme parks. Pre-paying for meals gives you one less thing to think about when you're in the magic. And Cinderella's Royal Table is one of my family's favorite dining experiences. My tip is to ask for a table by the windows overlooking Fantasyland; they offer the best views in the kingdom!

    I chatted with a prince of a Cast Member who said that the credit card you used at booking will be refunded the total amount you paid after you redeem those meals from your plan. You can typically expect to see that credit within a week or two. You'll still get an itemized receipt at the end of your meal, but the gratuity will not be included.

    If you order any additional items not covered by your plan, such as specialty beverages or extra sides, those will appear on your receipt. You can determine your gratuity based on the meal's total and tip with cash, a credit card, or a Disney Gift Card.

    Brenden, while spending money can be a beast, the dining plan makes it a beauty. I hope your dining experience with the princesses is the crowning jewel of your trip. Please stop by planDisney anytime! 

    Magic awaits,
