    We have a large party traveling to WDW this fall. Regarding dinner for large parties of over 8 (14), What is the required TIP for meal service that WDW will add to our bill ?

    Hello Thomas and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where it's our pleasure to assist you in planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort that's sure to be practically perfect in every way! 
    Wow a magical party of 14 Guests are really going to enjoy the most zip-a-dee-doo-dah of Disney visits this coming Autumn at Walt Disney World Resort - "It's the truth, it's "actch'll! Everything is sure to be "satisfactch'll!"
    Enjoying good food and fun times with my own extended family group during our Disney trips are subjects very dEar to my heart and in the past we've had a blast dining at spots which benefit from refectory style tables and seating which makes them just right when catering for large parties of all ages such as the Biergarten Restaurant within the Germany Pavilion at Epcot or Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
    I'm happy to share that at present Guests dining on a table of 6 or more folks at Table Service dining locations do incur an automatic 18% gratuity charge however when using select Disney Dining Plans gratuity is already included at select Dinner Shows and dining experiences. 
    Have a great Disney day.
