    Hi Jennifer!

    Great name by the way!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask a great question about your upcoming trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth.   I hope you are having a great time planning out all the fun you will have when you arrive in a few weeks.   It's my pleasure to help you out today.

    You have picked some really fun meals and I see they are all Character Dining locations.   What a treat you are in for, be sure to bring along your camera and autograph books when you dine.  Tusker House Restaurant is on one of my families favorite spots in all of Walt Disney World to enjoy a meal.  We love trying new foods and this exotic dining location allows us to do just that.  I hope you find a new food you love when you dine in just a few weeks.     Guests who have six or more in their dining party will have an automatic 18% gratuity added to the bill.   Keep in mind if you are using one of the Disney Dining Plans to pay for your food you still have to pay out of pocket for gratuities.   You can pay the gratuity with cash, credit card or if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel a charge to your account using your MagicBand.   Prices for these meals are listed under the menu section of each restaurant.   You could add up the total and figure 18% of that for a tip.   This may help you budget your funds.  

    I hope this has helped to guide you in the right direction.  Please let us know if you have another question.  Lending a helping hand to fellow Guests is what we enjoy most.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
