Basic DDP (not DQSDP) gives you the regular menu as opposed to a special DDP menu
TS adults =
Main course
TS kids 3-9=(from the kid's menu)
or for adults and kids 1 buffet
DDP does NOT include glow-cubes,alcoholic bev.,tip
I think I've gotten it correct..oh and if the DD/DS is younger than 3 they can share your meal at no additional charge

HTHY and congrats on your vacation:yay:

Here's a link I found that probably does a better job explaining

1. Tip

2. No

3. Appetizers are on the Deluxe Dining Plan. On the regular DDP, any appetizers at table services you pay for (along with tip). And desserts cannot be substituted for an appy, just in case you want to ask. ;)

You don't need to mention when you make your ADRs. I believe that at any 2 credit meal (HDDR, etc.) your gratuity IS included, otherwise it is not. You may tip with cash, or charge on your room acct.

You may want to read through the FAQ posts in the "Everything you always wanted to know" sticky thread at the top of this forum.

Gratuity is not included in ALL 2 credit meals. It is included at Cinderella's Royal Table and the 3 dinner shows. Also, for pizza delivery and in-room dining. Everywhere else, you need to pay the gratuity.

Discussion about tipping amounts and practices should take place on the Tipping Information Thread at
