    We are traveling to the WORLD in August. As there will be 6 of us with the exception of two meals, how does the gratuity work? I know we are charged the 18% but we have the Dining plan. Is it an additional charge? THANKS!

    Hi, Elizabeth!

    Gratuities are not included with the Disney Dining Plan. You will receive a bill at the end of your meal with any "extras" you may have ordered during your meal (specialty drinks, appetizers) along with the gratuity. Parties of 6 or more will have an automatic gratuity of 18% added on,

    If you need the bill split between parties within your group, let your server know so 2 separate bills can be brought to your table at the end of your meal.

    A vacation in August sounds like fun! Something to look forward to this summer. It can get quite hot in late summer, so plan on afternoon breaks at the pool, and bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat or visor. Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
