    We haven't been to Disney since they changed the Dining plan and took the tipping out of it. Could anyone give me a guesstimate on how much I should budget for tipping?

    Hi Jennifer,

    I know it was so easy to have the tip prepaid on your vacation! I would still budget 15-20% for a meal. However, you have no idea what the meal amount is going to be be.

    You can find this information in few places for a good estimate. First, at the Disney Dining site, it gives you a price range of meals that I find fairly accurate. Buffets and dinner shows are pre-set price so this is easy to figure out.

    The other place is go visit and look at the menus and it will have prices next to it. You can then estimate how much the tip will be.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
