You would get separate checks.

Even when we had 6 people all on the same dining plan they were willing to do split checks due to appetizers and alcohol. One server at Jiko didn't get it at first for some reason but getting separate was still not a problem. Youll be fine.

If you are in different rooms you need to ask for a separate check per room and each room will just need to hand one room key per room to have the credits taken off.

This will be my first time to Disney since I was a teenager. We have the Quick Service Dining Plan. My question is regarding tips at Quick Service places - is it customary to tip there or just table service restaurants? Just trying to make sure I budget properly and know what to expect.
Thanks!

it isn't customary to tip at quick service restaurants. the only exception I can think of off hand would be Wolfgang puck's express, at DTD (which is a GREAT use of a QS credit) since they bring the food out to you, many people tip 10%.
there may be mor elike that, bu tnone that I cna think of right now. I would say almost all of them are no tip expected.

Thank you! That clears things up for me!

And a friend just suggested Wolfgang Puck's Express at DTD. We might have to give that a try.

There are 2 - the one on the Marketplace side is much better than the one on the West side.

Summary

Thanks for all the great information. I hope I have it correct after reading all your advice????:

1. Quick service restaurants do not charge gratuities.
2. Table service restaurants will charge 18% for our group of 10 (3 rooms)
3. Payment can be made in cash at the restaurant
4. Separate payments can also be made via the credit cards attached to each
room. Am I correct that each of the three rooms could simply present each room card and only the gratuities for that room would be added to their tab?
5. Hoop Dee Doo show.... the gratuity has already been included in the price.
6. Am I missing anything???

Thanks
Karen

Groups of 6 get charged 18%
Each room will need to ask for a separate bill.

This may have already been asked but I can't find it.

I am traveling with my family of 4 and my mom, her hubby and my nephew. We have FD. I have made all TS ressies together for all 7 of us. I want to pay all of the tips for both groups, but their food will come off of their FD. How do I do this? When we sit down and ask for two separate checks do I instruct the waiter to please add the 18% gratituity to my card? Is this possible? I guess if that doesn't work, I could give my mom a GC to pay for their tips. Thoughts?

Yes, they will do separate checks because of different rooms and to deduct the dining credits. Just tell the server to charge the gratuities to your room only

Thank you!
Would it be easier for the server to add it to my room key or give them GC to pay for the tips?
