    i am packed full of questions today i know panel,its my first trip and im just bursting on the inside lol,we are wondering do we have to tip when where using a table service for a buffett on the ddp when its a serve yourself place

    Hi Sherry,

    Keep those questions coming!  We all want this first trip to be magical for you and your family!

    When it comes to tipping, I tend to err on the side of over tipping, rather than under tipping.  So, yes, our family leaves the same tip to servers at restaurants that serve buffet style as we do to those who actually bring our meals to us.  Actually, when it comes down to it, I think the cast members at these restaurants are working just as hard.  They take your drink orders and then continue to clean up after guests throughout the meal -- guests tend to go through a lot of dishes when food is served buffet style.

    Of course, ultimately the decision on how much to tip is left to your discretion.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
