Hiya, we're booked up for 2 weeks in 2014 ( ) and have free quick service dining. I *really* want to upgrade to the full DDP, but my husband isn't so sure. I understand that with us being a group of 7 (2 adults, 4 kids, 1 baby) we will have gratuity added on automatically, but how does that work with DDP? Does that mean we wont have to pay for our meal, but we will get a bill with gratuity charge on? Also (and here's how clueless I am), is gratuity the same as tips? The reason we love the idea of the dining plans is because we don't have to worry about money. We don't really want to be carrying around money for tips if we can help it and the idea of it being somehow pre-paid appeals immensely I *so* want to do the lovely Disney restaurants, but have no chance of convincing DH unless I can give him specifics - please help!
