    My family of six, (2 adults, 4 kids) is coming to WDW from 10/7/13 to 10/11/13. I have the Deluxe Dining plan, how much money should I set aside for the automatic gratuities (for parties 6 or more) on all of our 15 meals? Thank you so much!

    Hi Sonya - You'll be charged an automatic gratuity of 18% when you eat at table service restaurants.  The actual charge will vary depending on where you dine and where you order, but I'd expect to spend about $100-$175 per meal you eat at a table service restaurant.  Keep in mind that alcohol won't be included in your dining plan - so you'll also need to budget for that.

    Hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
