Thanks!
the smiths (party of 5) have a bill of 150. the joneses(party of 4) have a bill of 100. the smiths added tip wil be 27 an the jonses tip will be 18. (each bill has a tip of 18% of that bill only added.) (if the bill had not been split, the tip would be 45. see it's the same either way.)

pre tax. All tipping in the US is based on pre tax amount, though most people tip on the full amount just by not paying attention.

If you want to put the money for tips in envelopes, please make sure to take it out of the envelope before giving it to the server. They handle a lot of pieces of paper throughout the night and there is a good chance that it will get thrown away.
Good idea to take it to of the env. I never did the last time I will now for sure

You should tip, but you can probably tip a bit less than you normally would if you want.

I'm sure this has been answered but there are too many pages to go through. Are gratuities included at Cinderellas royal table if I am on the disney dining plan? Or do I tip?

I am not sure if this has been asked before...but here goes:

We usually do the DDP and use our Chase Visa Disney Rewards to pay for our tips. Our next trip will be our first trip without the DDP, instead we will be using TIW discount. Is it possible to pay for the meal with gift cards then use our Disney Rewards to pay for the tips????

Yes, just give both to the server and explain which you want to use for which one

I'm wondering the same thing..but can you pay tips with a giftcard? We are on the DDP so I am unsure how it works when it comes to the actual tips and if they have to charge them to our room, etc. Any ideas? Also, my idea is to buy them at Target so I can save a little money.

Yes you can use a gift card for tips. Just tell the server you're on the DDP and to charge the tip to your gift card

Sorry - I sure it has been answered many times, but I didn't read though all the pages.

2 rooms - 6 people - dining plan - cash tips paid by one room?

I know that there will be an automatic 18% added to the bills but I want to pay for all the tips for both rooms - how do I accomplish that? I don't want the tip for the other room to be charged to their room when they take the credits off the magic band for the dining plan.

Before there were 6 of us - I would just mark on other bill in their tip section and pay it all with cash - but I don't know if I can do that now.

You can still do what you used to do. Just let the server know that you intend to pay the grat on both rooms

In August, we went to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, it was busy. Server had too many tables and took forever getting drinks and clearing table. We were using dining plan, when we finally were given our bill, he did not allow a spot for a tip using our cc. After waiting another 15 minutes, and asking another server to locate him. We waited an additional 10. Finally we left without leaving a tip, which I feel extremely guilty about. But we were not about to loose are fast pass at Test track.

In the past, we have never received a bill without the option to leave a credit card tip.

Has anyone else ever had this experience?

It happens. Did you let your server know that you were using your DP prior to him giving you your bill?
Here's why I ask: when a server prints a check, 2 copies of the check are printed. One copy is for a guest using a DP, there is a place to write in a tip. Typically a guest will write in a $ amount or write CASH. The server then runs your DP, charges the tip however you wanted to and returns with another copy for you to sign. Transaction complete.
If a guest isn't using a DP or doesn't let the server know they are using a DP, the guest is given a different type of bill. This one has no tip line, looks like a normal bill in a non-WDW restaurant. If you have only ordered what if included on your DP, once the server runs your DP, the check closes. The receipt that prints out does not have a tip line, displays how many credits you have left and room for a signature.
One of 3 things can happen:
1) server doesn't know guest is using DP, guest sticks to plan and wrong copy is given = no tip line
2) Correct bill is given but guest doesn't fill in tip amount. Some guests don't feel the need to even look when the bill is dropped because they figure the food is covered and they can fill in a tip later. They can't because the next bill doesn't have a tip line. The server has to make a choice, either hope the guest is leaving a cash tip, or bring the empty tip line to the guests attention.
3) a manager can override a closed check and charge a tip to your room, this is at the managers discretion and isn't a given.

So! Now that I've confused you lol, I can say either you were given the wrong copy or didn't fill in the tip on the first check and the server couldn't ask for you to tip him.

I'm sorry you didn't have stellar service at your meal, unfortunately this does happen occasionally. Don't feel bad, you tried to remedy the tip issue.
