    We are using the basic dining plan. I understand gratuity is not included. Can a Disney Gift Card (bought at our local grocery store) be used for tipping at table service restaurants?

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks for your question.

    If your family is like mine, you're going to enjoy the flexibility and savings that accompany the Disney Dining Plan.  Disney Gift Cards are one form of currency you can use to cover the gratuities at your table service meals.  Simply present the gift card to your server at the conclusion of your meal and he or she will deduct the gratuity you specify from the balance on the card.

    Wishing you a magical vacation.  Let us know if there is anything else you'd like to know about the Disney Dining Plan.  We'd be happy to help!
