Some on DDP, some not

We are traveling with another family who is on the DDP. We are not because it doesn't make sense for us. We would like to have some TS meals together. I know that we will pay OOP for our meals. My question is will the tips be included on the check and which check since we will have 6 people - 4 on DDP, 2 not. I was told by my TA that dining together is not a problem, just tell the server who is on the plan and who is not.

Yes, they will just have your portion of the tip on your bill.

just get separate checks. they will pay with their dining plan credits, you will pay out of pocket (however you want, charge to room, charge to credit card, pay cash.)

each of the 2 checks will have 18% of THAT check added as an automatic gratuity. (just as the checks are separate, so are the tips) so it doesn't matter what they ordered. if your bill is $100, you will have an $18 gratuity added. (and if the other party's bill is $200, they will have a $36 gratuity added)

Are people tipping when they have lunch at BOG? I know it's QS, but they bring out your food, so sort of in between CS and TS.
Thanks.

I haven't eaten there yet. Is it similar to Wolfgang Puck express? We do leave a few dollars as a tip when we eat there.

I have neither performed (have eaten lunch there twice) nor observed any tipping at BOG lunch.

Who would you tip, the person who brings your food or the person who buses your table? They're going to be different people.

I realize that tipping is a personal preference, but I would appreciate some suggestions/advice please.

I am dining at Victoria & Albert's next week for the 1st time, for my birthday.
I have never eaten at such a fancy dining establishment.
This will be a new experience for me...I'm kinda nervous. LOL

I have heard that there are 2 wait staff for each table.

For example:
If my bill is $200 & I wanted to tip 20%...then 20 % would be $40 tip...


Do I leave 2 tips at 20%?
Or 1 larger tip for them to split?

What is the etiquette on this for Victoria & Albert's...I have no clue.
Thanks in advance!

You tip just like you would at any restaurant.

At the character meals, does anyone know if the servers "tip out" to the characters?

We went last year for the first time with just my family of 4 and were on DDP. We tipped with cash as it was never more than 6 in our party and it was not automatically added. Going again this year with my sisters family and we have 3 ADRs with them so it will be 8 fir those meals. Question: when tip is automatically added for parties of 6 or more can we pay it with cash or does it have to be added to room charge? Thanks

No they do not. At family style meals such as Ohana, they tip out bussers and assistants

we have a character breakfast at the Hollywood & Vine buffet one morning. We have 4 people in our party. I have read SEVERAL reviews on tripadvisor that people are saying the servers are adding the 18% tip to the check EVEN for parties of 4 people!

Is this common? I am not looking forward to confronting the server/manager if this happens to us
