Disney's rule is that if you're a party of 6 or more, or if you're using the TiW card, you tip the same % at all sit down restaurants, including buffets.

If you don't fit into one of those categories, what you tip at each restaurant is entirely up to you. If you want to tip normally, that's up to you, and if you want to adjust that, it's up to you.

Hope that this helps a little.
Thank you! That does help A LOT! I am happy to tip what I normally do in a restaurant. I just wanted to know about how much cash to have on hand. One more thing to check off the list!

Yeah, they make it clear as mud

But to actually answer your question: what your thinking is correct

be bice this is just a question

Thanks all i am asking this for the simple reason it counts twords a budget.
I was looking at some trip reports and a few people had 3 or 4 people with them and there was a line and they were charged 18% on that ticket. Is this standard? I tend to tip well but tip mor at night then in the morning and i have to make sure i am counting enough money for this if it is always on there for 4 people. Again this is not a make or break part of the trip so be nice I just need an answer

Thanks and for some of you that seen this post in another spot i am sorry didn't no that there was a spot for it.

Okay, we are doing DXDP in November. Is there anywhere that lists abut what the prices are for each TS restaurant so I can sort of guestimate what I need to budget for a tip? Say, for instance, CP is $X for adults and $X for child so I know how much to tip based on that?

tipping with cash for a party of 8 on DDP

We are a party of 8 and on the DDP. I know that gratuity will be added and I know that we can put it on our key to the world and then settle up at the end of the trip. (right)?

Well what if we prefer to leave cash? What do we need to do? Scratch something out and write cash? What's to stop them from charging it to our key as well? (Either accidentally/out of habit or on purpose)?

You can pay the balance (gratuity) however you choose. So cash would be fine, you could also mix it up throughout the trip. Occasionally paying cash and paying with the KTTW card other times. You will sign your receipt when you use your card and you will get a receipt when you pay your gratuity in cash.

I usually write in cash. There only time ot was automatically added to the card was when we were one of the last parties at Ohana for breakfast and we were the last poeple in there. The waitstaff did offer to remove the tip so we could pay with cash. Honestly, the tip she added was less than what we would have left

That is what I would recommend when it isn't added to the bill. For the PP I would draw a dash through the tip amount (assuming they don't want to tip additional beyond the auto gratuity.) For the PP, they will get a bill showing the gratuity due and they will decide how to pay the bill, either cash, CC, or KTTW card.

If I have a party of 11(we will be staying in 4 seperate rooms) so 4 seperate bills, is the 18% based on who is in your party(11) or on your dining plan(4 for us)?

If your dining reservation is for 11 its 18% added to your bill autmatically

Its 18% of what your party orders. DP or OOP doesnt matter.
