    We'll visit in Sept party of 5 staying for 7 nights at Disney Resort with Regular Dining Plan. Already booked 2 table dinings and confirmation email says gratuities may Apply for parties 6 of more. Does that mean we don't hace to pay gratuities there?

    Hello, Katia!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    When you have a large party of six or more, your bill will already reflect a gratuity for your Cast Member.  In my opinion, a very well deserved gratuity considering they have other tables to tend to.  Although a "forced" gratuity is never placed on guests with less than 6 in their party, I feel it is always a great way to say "thank you" for a job well done.  As with any restaurant you visit, the option to tip is there.  Cast Members do an excellent job at making you feel at home and tending to your dining needs.  If you would like to extend a warm "thank you" or "job well done", please consider leaving a tip for your wonderful Cast Member who will provide you with a most MAGICAL service.  I am sure any amount would be most appreciated.  Again, the choice is yours.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
