    You have to be either a Florida Resident or Annual Passholder to obtain the Tables in Wonderland card. With it you receive 20% off of food and drink at MOST of the Disney restaurants and bars/lounges, including the food courts (POR is an exception but not POFQ). In the restaurants and bars/lounges that accept it there is an automatic 18% tip added. It costs $75 per year.

    As John says it's a great little card with saves 20% on just about everything, alcohol included which is a rarity for Disney discounts!

    It used to be that you could pay whatever gratuity you felt fit, now most places will add 18% on automatically if you use the card and some, like V&A, will add 20%.

    So nowadays we just consider it a way to prepay all our tips for $75 per year. It's less exciting to think of it that way but it certainly saves a lot of money whilst taking away the "how much do we tip" issue.

    I guess we think of the dining plan as a way to prepay our meals versus the tables in wonderland card which prepays our tips.

    Terry we normally pick ours up at the Guest Services in DTD, but you should be able to get them at your resort I would think, and if not then any other Guest Services.
