    We are going to be using the Disney Dining Plan for the first time for our family trip in August. With the table service restaurants how do I figure how much to tip the servers if I dont actually get a total bill?

    Hi Sarah,

    Even when you're paying with Disney Dining Plan credits, your bill at the end of the meal will show the total of what your meal would have cost if you had been paying out of pocket with cash. You can use that number to calculate the tip. Standard practice at Walt Disney World is to tip 18-20%. If you have a party size of five or fewer, you can use that as a guideline. If you have a party of six or more, you will automatically be assessed an 18% gratuity on your table service meals. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
