    I am a little confused on whether or not my family of 4 will be expected to pay gratuity if we have purchased the dining plan. I originally thought gratuity was included as long as the party stayed under 6, am I correct?

    Hi, Sara! Sorry to tell you that gratuity is not included with your Disney Dining Plan (tax is, though) no matter how many, or few, are in your traveling party.  Using your Disney Dining Plan, there are six gratuity-inclusive experiences.  They are: Cinderella's Royal Table, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Mickey's Backyard BBQ, private in-room dining, and Grand Gathering Experiences.  Gratuity is included for these dining events only.  You are responsible for gratuity all at other meals.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
