Agreed. How nice would it be not to even get that credit card out?

Completely agree and I feel like the waiters get totally screwed by not having the gratuity included. Now people are going to be cheap by giving 15% or less or not give a tip at all. What about the European visitors? In many countries it's not customary to give a tip and although there are plenty of Europeans who do their research when visiting another country (I am sure our European friends on Disboards do Hence why they are here) there are plenty I am sure don't.

Oh, I would love to have french toast loaf again. Many years ago when the DDP was new, app., entree, dessert and gratuities were included. Loved that!
I also miss the 1 credit Le Cellier, and the old version of schoolbread.

This is so true. Here in the UK you tip for good service, it is not expected. Before my first visit to WDW I obviously did my research and was shocked that servers in the US don't get the same minimum wage as everyone else and rely on the tips to make it up.

I definitely would like this back. There is rarely a dessert I can have due to allergies and diabetes but a salad as an appetizer would be appreciated.

Get rid of the princesses at Akershus, even for at least one meal.

I agree with everyone else who said they wish the DDP would include tip again. I'm working on budgeting our meal tips out now and its such a pain. I would rather have the price of DDP be higher, and not have to worry about paying out of pocket while I'm there!

My dream plan is three meals a day with entree and beverage. You also get an appetizer OR dessert OR adult beverage with meals other than breakfast. If you choose to forgo dessert, drink, or appetizer, you get an extra snack credit for later. Plan will still have the standard 1-2 snacks a day.

Aww, the Empress Lilly! I went there as a kid-wasn't it a character meal?

Loved the Handwiches too!! I think I read that they now have them in Carsland in Disneyland.

Bring back beavertails and ring cakes from Kringla. These were so popular and yummy, makes you wonder why they were discontinued.
