Default Can onboard credit be used towards tips/gratuities?

Can I use my onboard credit (that I received from booking with a travel agency) towards paying off tips/gratuities? I've done that before with other cruiselines but I'm not sure if I would be able to do that with Disney.

Yes you can. The OBC is applied to your on board account.
So just go to Guest Services and tell them you want to put your gratuities on your account. They will ask how much for each water, head server, assistant server and room host you want to pay. Then ask for the receipt for each. Then on the last night of the cruise you put the receipt in the envelopes (delivered to your room the night before) so you have something to hand to your wait staff and room host the last night like everyone else will be doing.

I would've thought tips would be handled behind the scenes by now, between ships mgmt and staff, since it's coming out of your room account. Do you really still have to actually hand the staff envelopes with tips?

No but you may feel akward at dinner the last night when the others around you are all handing out tip envelopes and thanking the wait staff.

On DCL the wait staff does a parade around the dining room the last night as a fare well to their guests and then its tradition to hand them the envelopes and than them.

It's up to you.
