    I luv mom's panel. Lots of great info. I would like to know how the gratuities for table service work. We are on the dining plan and are a group of 5 but may meet another family of 3 down there. Does this mean the 18% is added only if we dine together?

    Hi, here's the scoop.  We are a family of 8 and every time we went to a table service as a family we had the 18% gratuity added.  When we broke up as a family, if the girls and I were out at a table service the 18% was not automatically added even though there were 8 on our meal plan.  The 18% is based on the persons present at the table during the meal not on the number of people on your plan.  If its less than 6 the gratuity is not added, but 6 or more it is automatically added. Hope this helps!! Have a fabulous trip!! Heather M.
