    We are going to be visiting in April. We have one infant, and three children, so we purchased the Deluxe dining plan. I know that 18% is added as gratuity for parties of six or more. I wonder if we count as a party of six when one child is under 3.

    The total number of people in your party is the determining factor as to whether the automatic 18% gratuity will be added to your bill, and that does include children under the age of 3.  I have four children and ever since our youngest came along and turned our party of five into a party of six we've qualified for the automatic gratuity.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
