A friend of mine just called me and told me she had talked to a couple of waitresses while she was eating breakfast yesterday and according to them, they said that the dining plan in 2008 will NOT include tips and that 2008 maybe the last year for the dining plan. They said that they are testing to see if people would still buy the plan or not if it didnt include tips. If success 1 or 2 thing may happen. They continue with the DDP without tips OR they will discontinue the plan altogether. They also said that Disney does realize that people are getting out of hand when they are turned away if they have no ADR and they are trying to find ways to end that. Also mentioned that more people are now trying to do walkups now even without being on the DDP then they had before the DDP even existed. She asked how the waitresses knew all this and one of the waitresses knows someone in the DDP marketing and planning and got this info from them. Normally I dont think the waitresses would open up so much about inside info like this, but since my friend is a reporter for a paper I guess she gets the goods.
