    Are there any tipping guidelines on Disney cruises? Also, are you able to charge it all at one time?

    Hey, Aimee!

    You can actually pay gratuities before you ever leave home by going to the Planning Center on, or you can charge everything to your shipboard account by visiting Guest Services. And here's the guideline you're looking for:

    Per guest, per cruise
     3-nights 4-nights
     Dining room server
     $12  $16  $28
     Dining room asst. server
     $9  $12  $21
     Dining room head server
     $3  $4  $7
     Stateroom host/hostess
     $12  $16  $28

    Other areas you may consider:

    Dining Manager -- Your Discretion
    Room Service -- Your Discretion
    Palo & Remy -- Gratuity included
    Spa & Salon -- Your Discretion
    Nursery -- Gratuity not expected
    Shore Excursions -- Optional; not included in shore excursion price.

    For your convenience, a 15% gratuity is automatically added to bar, beverage, wine and deck service tabs, and all gratuities can be charged to your room charge. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
