    Hi Moms :) are taxes included in the dining plan, or is it something added like the gratuity. Thank you

    Hi, Jassandra.  Disney dining plan meal entitlements do cover the tax for both counter service meals and table service meals (for items included in the plan).  If you order something that isn't included--an alcoholic beverage, for instance, you would be billed for the drink and tax for that particular item.  Also, just to clarify, for parties consisting of fewer than six people, Disney does not charge an automatic gratuity.  For parties of five or less, there is a suggested gratuity printed at the bottom of the receipt, but the amount of tip you leave is your discretion.  I hope that clears things up for you!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
