    We are using our dining plan to pay for character meals, which I know does not include tip. Can we pay for that tip using a credit card even though we won't be paying for the meal with it? Or do we need to have cash for the tip? Also, how much to tip?

    Hi Sariah!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    My family loves to take advantage of the Disney Dining Plan!  It is such a great feeling to not worry about food while on vacation.  Yes, you can use your credit card to cover the tip during your meals.  We always use our credit card to pay for tips and carry a small amount of cash for incidentals or snacks.  Sometimes the food carts do not accept credit cards - but not all so please don't worry!!  We normally tip between 18% to 20% - depends on the service. 

    I hope you have a pixie dust filled vacation!

    Have a magical day!
