    If I pay for my meals at the wonderful table service restaurants at Disney World with a Disney Gift Card, can I use the card for the gratuity too? How about paying with a magic band ... Can I add the gratuity to that too? Thank you


    Yes, and yes!

    You can pay for your meals, including the gratuity, with a Disney Gift Card or with a MagicBand. Both work, and both are good for paying the core meal cost and any gratuity you want to share with your amazing server.

    I did this last week with a Disney Gift Card, as well as with some gift cards that were not Disney Gift Cards. It has never been a problem, and I am sure you will find that to be the case.

    While it is not a meal where you are likely to tip, never forget to have your My Disney Experience App at the ready for the convenient Mobile Online Ordering feature eligible at select restaurants. When you are grabbing a quick snack, or a full counter service meal, it can really speed things along. My kids were impressed the first time we walked up to Casey's Corner and I strolled past the ordering line, grabbed a tray of corn dog nuggets, and headed off to a table. It was like food magic!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical (and delicious) Vacation!
