    We have purchased the Disney Dining Plan for our upcoming November trip. I am trying to determine a budget and was wondering about how much to have budgeted for gratuity. There are only 4 of us. Thanks!

    Christopher, you will love taking the time each day to sit down and enjoy a table service meal. This break forces you to pause from the fast pace of the parks and experience a relaxing time with with your family. The anticipation of this time in a wonderful restaurant with my husband and children is my favorite aspect of the Disney Dining Plan. Well, actually the dessert is my favorite.

    As a party of four your gratuity will not be included on the bill. Typically figure 18% for your tip at Walt Disney World. Of course if you received exceptional service or had a grouchy wait person you may round up or down as is appropriate.

    Enjoy your delicious meals!
