    Travelling with friends in Oct, 4 adults 2 kids. Read that parties of 6+ are automatically charged 18% service on dining. If using the dining plan is this still the case? If so would we have to have the service charged added to our room or pay cash?

    Hi Victoria, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  October is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  You will love all of the Fall Decorations, they are simply breathtaking!

    You have read correctly Victoria.  Parties of six people are more will be automatically charged 18% gratuity at any Table Service location regardless of if you have the Disney Dining Plan or not.  This will be added to your cheque at the end of your meal.  Guests may choose to pay cash or you can add the charge to your Key To The World Card and pay at the end of your vacation.

    I hope you have a magical time on your vacation Victoria.  If you have any other questions while planning, please let me know.  I would be happy to help.
