    I am still a little confused about gratuity. This is our first time with Table Service. I see a lot about 18% for parties of 6, but how does everything work with only a party of 2. We do have a dining plan. Is it still 18%???

    Hi, Peggy! Most gratuities at Walt Disney World  are decided by the individual Guest.  However, you are correct, there are a couple of exceptions.  With parties of six or more, an 18% gratuity is automatically added. Cinderella's Royal Table and the dinner shows (Hoop-De-Do and Spirit of Aloha) have gratuities included in the price already. Besides these three dining experiences, your Disney Dining Plan does not include gratuity for your server. Because you are a party of two, you will not be automatically charged the 18% gratuity on your check but will be able to leave a gratuity in the amount of your choosing. You may leave cash, pay by credit card, or even charge the gratuity to your room, if you've set up your Key to the World Card for charging privileges. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
