    We are a party of 12 we have 3 vacation packages of 4 (includind dinning plan) booked diner's togther. How would we do tip? We where told that we can leave $ on card for tip but not everyone wants to do that pls advise. At buffet are tips 18%?

    Hi there Vanessa and congrats on your Disney vacation!  

    No problem at all!  Prior to ordering, just let your server know that you are all on the Dining Plan, and that you want separate checks. This way, each person/party will be able to take care of the gratuity however they wish, be it cash, room charge, or credit card.  Each split check will reflect the mandatory 18% gratuity, and with separate checks, there should be no confusion and each party will be free to pay using the most personally preferred method.  

    For parties of 6 or more, 18% gratuity is automatically added to the total of every check...even buffets.

    Thanks for the question, and if you need more information or clarification, please ask me!
