    NOT using dining plan. Going to Spirit of Aloha and Cinderella's Royal Table dinner. Credit card has already been charged for both. Do we need to leave tip at table or is it included in prepaid price? How about Crystal Palace breakfast- tipping required?

    Hi Jennifer,

    The Spirit of Aloha Luau and the Cinderella's Royal Table dinner are two of the very few situations where the tip is included in the price of your meal. If you fell like you've received exceptional service, you're certainly welcome to leave more, but this is not required.

    The Crystal Palace breakfast does not have the tip included in the price of the meal. Yes, you should leave a tip for your server. Generally about 18% is the suggested rate at Walt Disney World.

    You can read an in-depth discussion about tipping at Disney on the independent website Search there for an article called "Frequently Asked Questions about Tipping at Walt Disney World."

    You've made some wonderful meal choices. Enjoy!
