My dad and his girlfriend will be on the Dining Plan with us (me, DH, DD5, and DS2), we're in a 2 BR villa, so we are technically in the same room. Can we get separate checks so we can pay our own portion of the 18% gratuity that will be automatically added? DH and I might want to add more and I think we'd all prefer to pay our our own each meal (my family of 4 separately from dad/girlfriend), but if that's not possible we can just take turns paying the gratuity. Thanks!

Yes, you can absolutely get separate checks. Just let your server know before ordering, and which diners' meals go on which check!

Please read the first post in this thread, which explains the whole tipping 'thing'.

If you're not a party of six or more, then 'normal' tipping applies to you. Suggested percentages will be shown on your original check or checks for your convenience, but you ultimately decide how much to tip.

Gratuities and seasonal price increases

I am working on the details for our upcoming trip.

When do buffet prices increase for seasonal dates?

We have a large group composed of several families. I am trying to anticipate costs of the meal tips so that we can pay the person whose card is attached to the suite and that way we really do not have to figure tips with each meal. We are all on the meal plan so the credits are fairly simple to do but tips are a nightmare.

Most meals are fairly simple as many people have favorite meals so I know what they are going to order or it is a buffet so the price is set......or is it? When do seasonal price increases take effect in December?

Also do some meals have tips included this year?

For example we are doing the Grand Gathering Safari Celebration dinner. Does that price/2 TS include tips?

I thought the Candle Light Processional included tips but I have now found where tips are not included on that one.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I was wondering if anyone knew if the tip was included in Tony's grand gathering breakfast and the Fantasmic dinner packag? I remember from last trip being surprised that the tip was included but I can't remember which one.

Just a reminder to please read the first post of the thread before posting here.

A few posts have had to be removed and if anyone wonders where their post went, you can probably find your answer in the first post.

(I know it says will be deleted without comment, but I thought it'd be nice to mention this as a friendly reminder)

I finally was forced to call Disney and ask these questions.

Does anyone else really dislike the voice recognition program they are trying to use when they ask you to say and spell your name? It works fine for my phone and address but it never gets our name right. I hate repeating it and it is still wrong. Just a waste of my time!

Any way, I was told that the seasonal prices will not be started while we are there, the first two weeks of Dec. So no price increase on that.

The Grand Gathering Safari Celebration price includes the normal tip. So that is good news too!

Candle Light Processional Dining package does not include tip!

Now off to calculate everyone tips!
