I apologize if this has already been discussed but I couldn’t find anything. I received an e-mail from the Disney Dining Experience program and in smaller print at the bottom of the e-mail the following statement was made:
“We would also like to inform you that the Walt Disney World® Resort will be implementing an across property policy change regarding gratuity at all food and beverage locations. Effective January 1, 2008, 18% gratuity will be added to all transactions, regardless of party size. Thank you for your continued support.”
hmm. I hadn’t heard of this.
