    There are four of us leaving for Disney and we have the basic meal plan. Do we need to tip or is it included already? I heard if it was six or more tips were not included, is this true?

    Currently, the gratuity is not included as part of any of the dining plans, whether basic or deluxe or otherwise.  What I think you are referring to, in reference to the six guests, is that for parties of six or more, an 18% gratuity is automatically billed, though the dining plan won't cover that portion of the meal.  For parties with less than six guests, gratuity is not automatically calculated and you are free to designate the percentage of the bill you'd like to leave for tip. 

    I hope that clears things up for you.  Have  a great trip!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
