    How is the qratuity for table service option on the dining plan being handled in 2008? I read that it is no longer included in the purchase of the plan, it is separate. They have also taken away the appetizer portion of the table service meal? Correct?

    If your party is over 6, there will be gratuity added, however, yes its true, that gratuity will no longer be included on the Dining Plan, you can leave gratuity using your Key to the World Card(room key, if you have charging privileges) There is an Appetizer option for the child's basic dining plan, but no appetizer option for the adult Basic Dining Plan.    I did list the meal options below for table service meals on both the Basic and the Deluxe dining plans.  We have used the Deluxe dining plan in our last visit.  Hope this helps you in your endeavors.  Have a great trip!!!
