    Hello. My family and I will be traveling to WDW DEC 12th-18th for the first time. We are on the DDP. We will be doing dinner at Boma, Ohana, Hollywood & Vine, Tusker, La Hacienda and breakfast at the Crystal Palace. How much should we budget for tip

    Hello Amanda, welcome to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel!

    Congratulations on your family's first Walt Disney World vacation, on choosing a great time to visit and on booking advance dining reservations.

    Tipping a Disney Cast Member at resorts and restaurants is suggested and most times expected.
    In my visits most Disney Cast Members offered excellent service and many enjoyed sharing their Disney experience with us guests.

    Still, the amount to tip depends on your budget and the quality of the service received.  Remember that restaurant tips also go to other employees that we never get to see.
    At restaurants we usually tip between 15 to 20 percent - we have had very good experiences at most Disney restaurants.

    Thank you for visiting and letting us help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
