    Question on the DP. We have the basic dining plan. I cannot remember if the tax is included in the price or must we pay tax and gratuity at the end of the meal. Thank you for your help. I love this panel and I plan on applying in September!

    Hi Deborah,

    Disney Dining Plan rocks! Since its been a while, here is a refresher.


    Tax is included in the Disney Dining Plan. Gratuity is not  included unless otherwise indicated. An 18 percent gratuity will be added automatically for parties of 6 or more; a gratuity may also be added for items not included in the Dining Plan, such as alcoholic beverages.

    Gratuities are included for dinner shows: Spirit of Aloha, Mickey's Backyard BBQ and Hoop De Doo.

    And good luck on your Mom's Panel application process!.
