    Leaving for our first trip to Disney in 2 weeks:) We are doing the DDP (1 table, 1 quick, 1 snack/day) for 6 days. I know tip is not included but I have no idea how much to plan to spend on tips. Can you give me a broad range if we tip 15% -20%?

    Hi, Shannon!   Assuming 2 adults and 2 kids, count on your table service meals to be between $80 - $120 (very ballpark figure!)   Averaging this to $100 per meal, times 6 table service meals at 18% tip, this would come out to roughly $108 for gratuities.     Obviously, no there is no tipping on snacks or counter service meals. 

    When your check comes at a table service restaurant, it has your remaining Dining Credits along with suggested gratuities which will help guide you with your tip.   If your party has 6 or more guests, an automatic gratuity of 18% will be added.

    Hope this helps!   There is some great dining around WDW - Enjoy!
