Starting May 24, 2012, the Disney Dream will launch the auto-application of gratuities. This service has already available on Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy in the past few weeks.
The process creates a more seamless experience for Disney Cruise guests by automatically charging folios on embarkation day with the suggested gratuity amounts for the Server, Assistant Server, Head Server and Stateroom Host/Hostess.
Guests can now add pre-paid gratuities at the time of booking or when processing final payment. If the pre-paid gratuities have not been added prior to boarding, you will receive a letter upon check-in explaining the automatic charge to their onboard account. Guests still have the option to modify or add additional gratuity amounts, or pay in cash, by stopping by the Guest Services Desk onboard.
