    Hello. This is my first time to use the deluxe dining plan. Is it true that gratuities are automatically added to the bill or do I have some choice in the amount depending on the quality of the service/food, etc.?

    Hi Patrick!

    Great choice on the Deluxe Dining Plan! You'll save about 40% when compared to paying meals out of pocket. But be ready, it's a ton of eating! :-)

    Gratuities are automatically included in the following scenarios:

    • Parties of 6 or more
    • Cinderella's Royal Table
    • Any Dinner Shows (such as the Hoop Dee Doo musical)
    • In-room dining or pizza delivery

    All the other dining experiences do not have an automatic gratuity, although 18% is the recommendation.

    Good luck with all your Disney planning!
