    We have upgraded our meal plan to include table service but now I have to deal with tips! Will our bill tell us how much we would have paid so we can tip correctly and can we add the tip with a credit card or our room card so we don't have to carry cash?

    Hi Caelin,

    You are in for a real treat! Disney has some incredible table service restaurants. Make sure you call 407-WDW-DINE to make your reservations as soon as possible (up to 180 days in advance).

    When you check-in to your resort, you can leave a credit card on file so that you can use your "Key to the World Card" to pay for incidentals and tips with it. That card will serve as your room key, park pass and will also how your Disney Dining Plan entitlements on it.

    Once you are seated, your sever will ask if you are on the Disney Dining Plan or not. Your bill will come with the total at the bottom and suggested tips calculated to 18% and 20%. You will present your card to have the dining plan entitlements subtracted from it and you can ask them to add the tip to the card as well. 

    If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation,
