No tipping at kiosks. Full service bars, yes; kiosks, no. Workers at the kiosks are not classified as bartenders. There can be full service bars that look like kiosks, such as High Octane Refreshments at DHS. That place has bartenders. They make good drinks, too. But the folks at the kiosks who don't mix any drinks, who only pour wine or beer or extract a pre-mixed drink from a machine, no, they're not tipped.
I have never seen a tip jar on any kiosk inside the WDW parks and I've been to all the ones at Epcot for sure. Allowing tip jars in the parks sounds like something Disney would not do. Has anyone noticed if the Starbucks at WDW have tip jars? It's standard for Starbucks to have them usually. However, the employees at the WDW Starbucks are considered WDW employees and not Starbucks employees, so they would do whatever WDW would do.
Do not pressure CMs to take tips if they decline. If they say they will get in trouble if they accept them, it is probably true.

How exactly do the gratuity amounts work?
We'll be arriving in August (4 of us) and have the dining plan.
I assume a bill where we have nothing extra would be $0.
Does it calculate the bill based on what it would have cost - and give a suggested amount (is it 18% now?)?
If we had extras (drinks, apps etc.), I assume that amount would just be added to the other 'theoretical' amount and the gratuity would be calculated against that amount?
Do you actually write the amount of your gratuity - and it can just be charged to your room?
I have no problems with gratuities (18% is higher than typical UK levels..) as long as the service is good. If you're not particularly enamoured by the service, are you still free to leave a lower amount or is that really bad? Speaking of 'really bad', what if the service was really bad - are you still obliged to leave one anyway? Hopefully that will never happen though!!
What if the tip says for example $22.56 - leaving a $20 is not enough (?) and you give $25 and wait for change?

If you choose to leave cash and need change, simply ask the server for change and then leave whatever amount you want for the tip. If you just put money in the check book they are just going to assume that is their tip unless you ask for change.
Hopefully you won't have bad service but if you do then don't wait until tip time to sort it out. Ask for a manager and explain what you are unhappy with. Give the server and the manager the chance to turn it around.
