    last year we got the dining plan . there is 6 in our family me my wife and 4 children the youngest is 1 why do we get charged the 18 percent when only five have the dining plan

    Hi Jennifer,

    Unfortunately, it is not decided based on the amount of guests who will be using or who are on the Dining Plan but rather how many guests will be at a table.  Regardless of a guests age, if a table which requires seating for 6 or more guests is booked, then the automatically 18% gratuity will be added to that tables bill at the end of the meal. 

    Best wishes,
