how much to budget for tips

we are going to disney in June and are trying to budget for tips at the restuarants we are eating at. we are using the dining plan at these restuarants, Cinderllas Royal Table, Chef Mickey, Liberty Tree Tavern, and Tusker House. I know a few are buffets, but couldn't find a real cost for the restuarants to figure a tip. we have 2 adults and 2 kids. any help will be greatly appreciated

Check out allears.net for menus and pricing. I usually take the cost of the dining plan and multiple by 18-20% to get a rough ballpark figure of how much to budget for tips. It is always more than enough to cover tips and out of pocket costs.

No need to visit any other site for menus and pricing; it's all right here http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/disneydining.cfm on the DIS host site!

I am closing this because all discussion regarding tipping on the Restaurant boards is restricted to the Tipping Information Thread on the main Restaurant board. Here is a link to the thread:
