    Hi all, thanks for your help! We are a party of 6 and all have the dining plan. Some places state that gratuities are added to the bill for large parties. Does the dining plan then cover the gratuities or do we still have to pay out of pocket? Thanks

    Hi, Adrienne! Gratuities are not covered by the Disney Dining Plan no matter what your party's size.  There are six exceptions to this rule, and they all require two dining entitlements each.  The exceptions are: Cinderella's Royal Table, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Mickey's Backyard BBQ, Private In-room Dining, and Grand Gathering Experiences.  These experiences DO include gratuity.  For all other meals, you are responsible for the gratuities out-of-pocket.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
