    I have vacation planned for april, I purchased a dining package which includes table and quick service. I'm unsure if I need to plan to pay for gratuities and tax. I know for Cinderella it includes 2 table services which replaces gratuities.

    Hi Jenell,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family enjoys the value of the Disney Dining Plan, especially when we have booked Character or Signature Dining Experiences. We also love having the option of different Plans since during each of our visits we like to try new Restaurants, so we need a Plan that fits with those particular Dining Experiences. 

    You are correct; gratuities are included at Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park. Two (2) Table-Sevice meal entitlements per each person dining will be redeemed from your meal plan balance. Gratuities (and alcohol) are not included in the Disney Dining Plan unless otherwise noted. Tax, however, is included.

    Please visit us again if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
