We have pre-paid about $25.50 each, "including tax and 18% gratuity" for Feb.

Is it still a "gratuity" when you're forced to pay? Sounds like a tax to me. I have issues with tips anyway, I feel strongly that if you pay a person a salary thats it, shouldn't have to expect tips. Just my two cents....or gratuity.

the problem waiters and waitresses dont get paid minumum wage even, so they depend on tips to make any kind of money, they get like 3 or 4 bucks an hour where i live. if they give great service i pay 20%..otherwise 10 or 15% is plenty

$13.99 is the children's rate for "peak" season....

Thank you for pointing this out!! It annoys me when people assume that because someone is working they must make minimum wage. It's not the case for waiters and waitresses. I don't know about in Disney, but where I live I have friend that are waiters and they make about $2 an hour. I am always amazed at people that don't tip - unless you had the absolute worst service ever, you should always give something, in my opinion.

Also, a waiter/waitress gets taxed on his or her pay check based on food sales. Meaning that their pay check is taxed based on the food you eat. When I was a waitress I had to claim 8% of my sales on my time card. So if a waitress sold $1000 in food then they have to claim $80 as income. So if everyone doesn't tip then they get screwed in the end

Hello all !! I have a question. Today I was able to make reservations for the dessert party today for January 25 th! my question is when I was reading the information about the party it said standing only. Does that mean we will Not have a tale to sit at to eat and watch the fireworks?? I can't imagine they would make people stand! If I am going to be standing I need to cancel the reservation and will be very unhappy!! Thanks!!

Hello... please look at the pictures on my first link of my signature. You will notice that there is a huge ceiling above the tables....and there are only 4 or 5 tables at most where you can sit and see the fireworks. You will be given a pre-assigned table to eat at, but all are encouraged to see the fireworks from the railing...hence standing.
Even though you will be standing to see the fireworks most likely, you wouldn't be within a huge mob of people where it would become uncomfortable. Hope this helps some...again, check out the pictures in my thread...that may help you.
