    Is gratuity included in any of the character dinings specifically princess Storybook at Akerhus, Chef Mickey, the Royal Table or Hollywood and Vine?

    Hi Samantha!

    You are going to love dining in any one of these locations!  Even when I take an adults-only trip to Walt Disney World I am sure to book at least one character dining experience.  In my opinion you are never too old for Mickey ears or a having dinner with your favorite friends.

    This link for Disney World Dining 2014 is a PDF document and can be printed to help you with planning your dining reservations.  You will notice that the only character dining experience in which gratuities are included is at Cinderella's Royal Table.  However this location does cost 2 table service credits, so be sure to plan for that as well.  The imaging packages are included at Cinderella's Royal Table and Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.  You may buy the imaging packages separately at the other locations. 

    I hope this information helps in planning your character dining experiences.  Please come back and visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any more vacation planning questions.  We love to help!
