    What gratuities are or are not included in the dining plan?


    Thanks for the question!

    So gratuities are generally not included in the Disney Dining Plans, with a few exceptions. Those exceptions are;
    1. Dinner Shows (like the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review and Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show)
    2. Private In-Room Dining
    3. Cinderella's Royal Table
    As long as you have a method of payment tied to your room, you can just charge gratuities to that when you are paying at the end of a meal. 

    Have a Magical (and delicious) Vacation!
