    We are traveling to WWD in Dec 2013. We will have 2 famalies (10 people total, 2 children under 2) with seperate reservation #'s but we want to dine together. Will WDW include the 18% tip even though we are 2 seperate parties with 2 seperate dining plans

    Hi, Tori!  I think your question is about adding the 18% gratuity to the bill or parties of six or more.  If I have misunderstood your question, please let me know!

    If there is a party of six or more people dining at the same table, being waited on by the same serving staff, there will be an 18% gratuity added to the bill, regardless of how many separate checks you'll need.  I recently dined with a party of 12, with almost everyone on a dining plan, and even though we were all technically separate parties, the gratuity is automatically added.

    It sounds like it will be a wonderful vacation!  I hope you all have a fabulous time, and whatever you need as you make your plans, we'll be here to help you through!
