    Hello. I'm going to Disney during the free Dining Plan offer. Does this include tips or will tips be my responsibilty? Thank you for your help.

    Gratuities are not included on the Disney Dining Plan. You will need to tip your servers out of pocket. This can be done with cash, credit card, room charge, traveler's checks, etc. When you're done with your meal, you will be presented with a bill. This will include actual charges for any items you may have ordered that were not part of the Plan (adult beverages, for example). The bill will also list how much your meal would have cost if you were not on the dining plan. This is the amount that you should base your tip on.

    If you'd like more specifics about the Dining Plan, click here. You'll be taken to a downloadable PDF brochure about the Disney Dining Plan. It gives a comprehensive list of places where the Dining Plan can be used as well as loads of other helpful information.

    Have a great trip and enjoy your free dining.
