    Hi, we'll be coming from sept 26-oct 3, when they're running the promotion with the free dining plan. Am I reading it right, that the DDP does not include gratuity anymore, except for a select few restaurants? How can I find out which one's they cover?

    You are correct. For the most part, gratuities are not included on the Dining Plan. You will need to tip your server at table service restaurants. There are a very few exceptions to this rule. These are the restaurants, packages, or other dining experiences where the tip is included in the prices of the meal. The locations where tips are included are:

    - Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom
    - The Hoop Dee Do Revue
    - Mickey's Backyard BBQ
    - Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show

    Additionally, the gratuity is included when using your Dining Plan credits for in-room dining (room service) and for in-room pizza delivery.

    All of this information can be found on the Disney Dining Plan brochure which can be downloaded from the WDW website. To do this, click HERE, then click on the Disney Dining Plan card, then click on Download Disney Dining Plan PDF.
