Urgh, it's not that I mind the voice recognition, but earlier this year when I had a cold I coughed midway through the whole spiel and the darn thing went into Spanish. Unfortunately my high school Spanish was NOT going to be much use to me to deal with the information I needed to request and provide.

Our last name is hard to spell on the phone - F and S are easily confused. On top of that, my last name is hyphenated. NOT FUN with the Disney voice recognition. AT ALL.

I've had more trouble with the Disney World phone systems and reps this trip!

Someone upthread asked about tipping WRT the Restaurant.com coupons - here's a picture of how it worked for us at HoB, for anyone still wondering:



Note that the $1 charge gets listed twice but only added once. 1+13+7.84+2.49=24.33, not 23.33. So the 7.84 is the tip AND the IHOBF. So if you're leaving over the mandatory 18%, be aware.

First Time @ Disney

Forgive me if this question have been asked before...
This will be our family first Disney Trip. We are a family of five. My sister in law and (maybe my mother in law) will be going as well. We will have two separate dining plan. We will have ADR's for 6 or maybe 7 people. We will ask for two separate checks. Will 18% be add to each check even if we have two checks? Or we tip the server according to the meal cost?
Thank you...

If you are all on one ADR, yes you will have it automically added.

This is from the first post in this thread:
Quote:
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.
If you're all seated together, yes, appropriate 18% service charge automatically added to each check.
If you're seated at separate tables with the same server, appropriate 18% service charge automatically added to each check.
If you're seated at separate tables with separate servers, there'll be a suggested 18% and 20% amount listed on each check for convenience but the actual tip is up to the Guest.

I know that I should be able to wrap my brain around this but I am just not getting it!

We will be traveling next year with my sister's family so there will be 7 of us total on two separate reservations. I know that the 18% will be added onto each of our bills. Since we will have deluxe dining, will the 'bill' only be for the tip as long as we did not have alcohol or anything else not covered? If we do have alcohol, will we still get a separate check for that again with the 18% added?

In theory I am guessing that we will end up with 4 checks ... one for each of us with just the tip amount and one for each of us with the extras ... is this correct?

And I am assuming that we could still pay the main tip portion in cash but use some other form to pay the extra check if applicable?

Sorry to be so dense ...!

Hoop de doo / dining plan / tips

Hello All

I was wondering if anyone out there has been to the hoop de doo review using the dining plan. All Ears states that tips are included in the price.
Does this apply to those using the dining plan?

Your replies are appreciated

Not only are the tips included, but you also get Bud Light draft beer &/or sangria as well for your 2TS credits.

Just trying to read through all this and it just hit me that we are only a family of 4 but have 2 separate reservations since we have connecting rooms. We are on the regular dining plan.
Does this mean at every restaurant we will get two separate checks?
I guess it does. It won't make much of a difference on the tipping, it will still be the same as if it were combined.

If you are on the dining plan - do you not have to tip at the signature restaurants/dinner shows??

From what I am seeing so far, is CRT & HDDR, LUAU, & MBYB already has tax and gratuity included, correct?

Is this so for the other signature restaurants like for example, Narcoossee's??

Dinner Shows have gratuity included. Regular restaurants, buffets and signature restaurants (such as Narcoossee's) do not have gratuity included.
