    When using the DDP for Table Service meals, I know that gratuities aren't included (unless in a party of 6 or more). Can the gratuity be added to your Magic Band (similar to how other purchases are made), or is cash left at the table required or preferred?

    Hi Lorraine!   I am so happy you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about Disney's Dining Plan.   I think you are really going to enjoy all the delicious dining options available to your family while on vacation at Walt Disney World.   I hope you get to enjoy some of my families favorite restaurants, Tusker House, and  Flying Fish Cafe. 

    Lorraine, your gratuity can be paid for with cash, credit card, Disney Gift Card,  or you can charge to your Disney Resort account using your MagicBand.    I love the convenience of not having to carry around my entire wallet while on vacation.  MagicBands make charging to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel account simple and quick.  I really think your are going to enjoy this added plus on your upcoming trip. 

    Please let us know when we can be of assistance to you in the future.   We love to help guests plan magical vacations.
