    What happens if you refuse the 18% tip.

    Oh, Angie! Oh no you didn't! Refuse an 18% tip?! Oh, my word...

    If you have a party of 6 or more, the 18% gratuity is automatically added to your dining bill before the check is delivered to your table. 

    If you have less than 6 people dining at your table, the bill will usually include - as suggestions - an 18% tip and a 20% tip. For middle-of-the-road service, a 15% gratuity is fairly customary. If you feel less of a gratuity is in order, you gotta do what you gotta do. I don't think a reality show or gung-ho TV news reporter is going to hunt you down. It'll be your conscious that hounds you if you don't play fair.

    I've always been pleased with the service we've received while dining at Disney World. I hope you expect, plan for and receive the same.
