    Does anyone know the tax % in WDW? Thinking if I do ever do a solo Trip I plan to Pay out of pocket and wanted to know the tax at dining in Disney.
    Thanks

    I don't have the current rates, but be aware that WDW spans two counties and the tax rates are different between the two.

    I think that it's 7% and 6.5% but most are in the 7% but I could be wrong

    The basic Sales Tax rate in Florida is 6.0% and is on most goods and services. The counties have an option, by vote of their residents, to add a surtax of 0.25%, 0.5%, 1.0% or 1.5% to the state rate.

    Orange County, which is most of WDW, has a surtax of 0.5% so purchases (including meals) are taxed at 6.5%.

    Osceola County, which has the All-Stars Resorts and Wide World of Sports in it, has a 1.0% surtax so purchases at those locations are subject to a 7.0% tax.

    In addition, counties are allowed to have a tax on transient lodging. In both Orange and Osceola Counties it is 6.0%, so all lodging except the All Stars is 12.5% while the All Stars, in Osceola County, is 13.0%.

    For people like me who are obnoxiously precise:

    Florida allows (or requires?) merchants always to round up to the next highest penny when calculating tax, as opposed to my home state where tax is rounded to the nearest penny in either direction.
