If true I wonder if that would make Akershus a 2 TS credit meal now as well?

I am booked there and they told me it would only be one TS credit. I did have to reserve with my credit card though.

Is this for all tip questions or just dining?

I am wondering if there is a customary tip due to the boat captain (driver) for a Wishes or Illuminations pontoon cruise.

The cruise is $275 for the hour. What would a reasonable tip be IF indeed one is expected from me.

Thanks!

This is for dining Shell, but I can tell you I did an Illuminations Cruise with my family last year and when I went to tip the captain, she told me tipping was not allowed, everything was included in the price.

This is different from past cruises where tipping was allowed. Hope that helps,

Yes, the tip is included for both PSD and CRT and they both have a photo package. CRT is 2 TS credits and PSD is 1 TS credit.

So you don't have to tip at PSD?! Wow, I think they'll definitely end up changing that to 2 TS soon...

I'm glad to be taking advantage of it in November!

I've seen no official word from Disney that this is the case about gratuities. It may be, just that I haven't seen anything.

As far as a CM telling me that it's not a tipping location, I tend to be wary. I had a CM practically fight me that tip was included at Crystal Palace. She insisted many times over, and above my arguments that tip was included in the price of the buffet. I knew better, and when we went sure enough - the tip was not included.

Yes I know this for a fact. I HAD PSD booked for breakfast this August but then cancelled it. But when I made my ADR, the CM was very clear that the tip and tax WAS included in the price along with CRT. Now granted I booked this back in Feb. so things might have changed between now and then.

I am not trying to fight at all. I understand you had it booked and like I said, it may well be included. I am just cautioning that the CM's can and have been wrong about where gratuities are included.

I looked for official work on the Disney site, and officially it says no. I know the price increase happened in April, and when looking at info on the price increase I haven't seen any word that it now now includes tip.

I think it'd be more accurate to ask someone who has been to PSD since the price increase to find out if it actually included the tip or not. CM's, unfortunately, aren't always the best source of info. I hope that the tip is included - I just am distrustful of CM's official word.

You replied before I edited my post. But I had booked this back in Feb. so maybe then it was included, the tip. And all those who had made the ADR before April got grandfathered and are able to have that tip included. But yes, the best way to know is ask someone who has been very recently like within the past month. OR, find a direct phone number to the restaurant and call them and ask them.

I agree that totally stinks that they even do it for little ones. So if you write CASH on the top of the reciept and give the waiter/res something different what will happen?

Your right, many CM's seem to contradict one another. I called yesterday and CM told me gratuity was not included for PSD and it was still 1 TS I guess I'll see in Sept.
