And if so, would I then write "cash" or "included on other receipt" on the DDP receipt?

I'd prefer seeing only 1 line item per restaurant when I get my statement since we'll have OOP charges on most of our meals for our adult beverages & an occasional appetiser
Last year when we had DDP and OOP stuff. We did just that.

We would be presented the check and we would hand them our KTTW card and our TiW card. We would NOT put a tip on the original DDP receipt. When the two tickets would come back the DDP portion is taken care of then we would add the tip to the OOP receipt for everything.

That depends on what you are going to eat. Take a look at the menus and try to estimate what your meal would cost.

When you use the dining plan, you will still get a check with the actual amount of the meal, so you'll be able to calculate a tip then.

Excuse my ignorance, but if I'm at a bar for a couple of beers do you pay and therefore tip per drink or do you pay for the drinks and then leave an overall tip at the end?
I think I'm okay with all other tipping situations but not quite sure about this one.

Tipping is a matter of personal choice, however when we are having a few at the bar, when our table is ready we pay the tab & leave a tip for the bartender.

After dinner when we pay that bill we tip according to that total. Now if we've ordered additional drinks during dinner that the bartender prepared for the waitresses, can't control what happens there but I'd hope the waitresses take care of their bartender at the end of their shift

The bartender will usually run a tab for you. Normally, he or she will hold your Key to the World Card (assuming you're staying on property) until you are ready to settle up. You can then add a tip to your bill.

Those of you who have a Tables in Wonderland card can also save 20% off lounge/bar purchases. If you use the TIW card, don't forget that an 18% gratuity will be automatically added.

???

ok, I have 2 questions:
1) We have the dining plus package & our party is 6 people (2 adults, 1 teen, 1 child and 2 infants under the age of 2). Our reservations for dining are for 6, but we only have 4 eaters. Do we get hit with the manditory 18% for parties of 6 or more?

2) I want to tip in cash, is this acceptable or does everything have to go threw the cc linked to your passes?

Yes. All parties of 6 are subject to the auto gratuity. It's explained a little bit more under #5 of the FAQ in the first post.

Tipping in cash is fine. When you pay your bill, give them the room card to deduct the DDP credits and give them the cash to pay the balance due (gratuity and any items you may order that are not covered by the DDP)

Sorry, silly question!

Thanks for putting together a comprehensive tipping FAQ. I am pretty sure I have everything I need. There was one thing I could not find. Per #5 tip on the first page of this thread, it states:

"Parties of 6 include everyone at the table, including children under 3 and infants. If you are dining with another group and paying separate, you are still subject to the 18% gratuity added to the bill. Each group at the table can get their own bill with their portion of the gratuity split out."

Can any one clarify when the 18% is calculated and seperate checks are requested, will the 18% be split on the seperate bills for all the food ordered by all people at the table? Or will each person only be charged 18% based on what they ordered? Sorry if this has been asked already.

Ex: We are a party of 7.
Family 1= me, DH, DS7, DS1
Family 2 = MIL & FIL
Family 3 = BIL

So will the 18% be calculated for everything the whole party of 7 orders, or 18% for family 1 for what family 1 orders, 18% for family 2 for what family 2 orders, etc...

I am only asking this because we are all on the DDP, but I know we will order some appetizers/beer/wine not covered on the plan and I dont want the other parties to have to pay extra for gratuity that only we are enjoying/craving....Make sense? Too complicated? Am I too crazy???

Sorry....

TIA

It is split per check to what you oredred. so if your family ordered more, your tip would be more

Not too complicated and you're not crazy. You'll get two checks and they'll get one. Their check will show their purchases, and will show them what 18% and 20% of their check is for their convenience. It's not a command, the actual amount/percentage tipped is up to the diner/dining party.

Your party will get a check like theirs indicating your Dining Plan purchases, with the same convenience tip amounts. You'll get another actual check - the one you need to pay - showing your purchases, your total, the tax, the total-total, and again the convenience tip amounts.

Okay I read the whole thread!

So when booking my ADr's I called for a couple of them and the reservation ladies said to make my ADR for five since baby will only be 9 months old and won't count in the total "people" which would make our party a party of 6, she said it will be only 5 people and we won't be charged a gratuity.

So who is wrong?
