    How is the 18% tip calculated when using a Table service credit? Is it 18% of what is ordered? How is it calculated for a 2 Table service credit meal (Spirit of Aloha)? Need to budget this into our spending £'s (6 people for 2 weeks will add up quickl

    Hi Lyn,

    Thanks for your question! Gratuitiy can sometimes be a tough expense to predict, however it is important to have a rough idea so you are able to budget accordingly. The 18% gratuity is calculated based on what you ordered at Table Service and Signature dining locations. However, for dinner shows such as Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show gratuities are included in the ticket price, so you will not need to budget any extra for gratuity.

    Please keep in mind that if you are a party if six or more, an 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your cheque.

    I hope you have a magical time on your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Lyn. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I would be happy to help.
