    Re. Deluxe Dining Plan. I read that the tip is included in the total cost of dining at CRT. Is that accurate? Are there any other restaurants that have this policy?

    Hi, Robert! I am a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan and the convenience it affords my family during our vacation. While on vacation, I do not want to worry about rushing back to prepare a meal for my hungry family. With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, all of our meals and snacks are taken care of and even paid for well before our vacation begins. I only need to worry about which delicious dining location we will visit next! 

    What you read is absolutely correct, Robert. The gratuity is included in the price of the meal at Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park. You are welcome to leave an additional tip for exceptional, pixie-dusted service. Other places where you will find the gratuity included in the prix fixe cost of the meal are the Spirit of Aloha Luau at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and both Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue and Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. If you do decide to leave an additional gratuity, you can do so with cash, credit card, or by charging to your room via MagicBand.

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Robert. Please let us know if you have any further questions for us, especially if you would like any recommendations for table service restaurants to experience during your stay! Disney dining is one of our favorite topics around here.
