    In September my family have 3 separate bookings as are staying at 3 different Disney Resorts we all have the Dining Plan sometimes we wish to eat together I’ve read gratiuity of 18% is applicable for paties of 6? Is this even for buffets? Thank you

    Hi Lisa!

    Let me say that I love that you will be traveling with additional family members for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation and you are going to love the Disney Dining Plan! Yes, if your buffet dining reservation is for a party of 6 or more, an automatic 18% gratuity charge will be added to your bill. 

    Be sure to make your advance dining reservations as soon as you can to ensure availability exists at your favorite restaurants. 

    Have a magical meal!
