    If you have a party of 6 or more on the dining plan, are you automatically charged the 18% gratuity at the buffet meals?

    Hi Tracie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family are big fans of the Disney Dining Plan - it's a really convenient way to enjoy snacks and meals throughout your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    As stated in the 2016 Disney Dining Plan brochure, an 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your bill for parties of six or more at all Table-Service restaurants including buffet locations.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
