    I wanted to know when traveling with 8 people but reservations are split 4 people per and using dining plan how does tipping work at table service.Do they charge each parties 18% tip??

    Hi, Michael!

    Any party of 6 or more guests will have an 18% gratuity added to their bill at table service dining locations. You may split the bill however you wish, but the 18% is still added. If for any reason your service was less than exceptional, please ask to speak to a manager. 

    The servers at Walt Disney World are amazing, and are very familiar with multiple parties dining together so they will be happy to split the check however you wish. Even if you plan to split the check or have multiple families on the Disney Dining Plan, you will still want to book just one dining reservation for your entire party. This will in no way change how you can pay or ordering kids meals, etc. 

    During the planning process, you may want to link your travel parties through Family and Friends on your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you share dining reservation details, and even book your FastPass+ selections together. A party of 8 on Splash Mountain sounds like a fun time to me!

    Wishing you and family and friends a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
