Jody's beautiful FAQ in the first post covers both questions . Point 5 and Point 6 address the party size vs gratuity amount, and different ways you can pay for your tip.

The only issue that you will have is that as far as I know you can't link different CCs to different room cards within a room. You may want to double check over on the Resorts board about that, or even call Disney directly.

Gratuity budget on DDP

OK, I'm traveling with a party of 8 on the DDP. We have 5 TS meals on the plan that we plan to redeem (plus HDDR, which includes the gratuity already). Our TS restaurants are:

California Grill
Le Cellier
Ohana
Rose & Crown
Teppan Edo

I'm sure that they'll be adding the 18% for all of our meals, so my question is what do you think is a reasonable per meal "budget" amount? Should I expect that each meall will be a $200 meal, so budget $36, or are they more likely to be $300 - $400 (I guess CG will be more like $400).

Does anybody have a copy of a dining receipt that they can show us? I have never used DDP before and this time it will be my first. Will the receipt list the prices of each entree? Or will it have only the recommended tip amount and the number of TS credits?

Any help would be appreciated!

A quick question. Is the 18 and 20% suggested amounts on the check calculated on the before or after tax totals of the check?

Candle Light Processional Tip question

We will be dining at Coral Reef using the Candle Light Processional meal package. Is the tip included in this package?

Stupid question about tipping for drinks

What do you do when purchasing a drink at a stand, such as the Grey Goose slushie in EPCOT or a margarita at the poolside stand? Is it basically the same as going to a bar when you get a drink give them an extra few dollars depending on the drink? (Never really go to bar, usually only have drinks with dinner but bringing a 5 year old on her first Disney trip I feel I will needing some margaritas!)
-Thanks in advance

I have heard rumors of servers double tipping and that I should cross off the tip amount?
If your party consists of five or fewer people, there IS no tip to 'cross off'. Six or more, no, you should NOT cross off the automatic 18% service charge because it IS part of your bill.
You hear about double-tipping because it's so rare, and yes costly. All you need to do is check what you're signing and make sure you're being charged what you agreed (actively or tacitly) to pay - including tip, alcohol, extras. And keep your receipts in case there's a problem.

I am trying to set aside some cash for tips when we are in the world next month. I have been looking at AllEars to try to get an idea of how much. I know that with the DDP at a TS it will include a drink (non alcoholic), main course and dessert. My questions are - Will the pretax total of the bill include each of those items listed as separate costs? Kids meals - are the parts of a kids meal (appy, drink, main dessert) listed as separate costs or as one "kids meal"?

If it helps we have 2 adults and 2 children (ages 8&6) I did have a bill from our last years trip but I have lost it! Thanks so much for your help!

I just got back from WDW last night. We did the Candlelight Processional package at Coral Reef.

When I received the bill, it did not list the items that we ordered. It listed the CP package price for each person in our party.

The suggested tip amounts of 18% and 20% were based on the CP package price and not on the items ordered.

It is our first time on the dining plan with a family of four, all considered adults on the DDP. How much should we set aside for the following meals tips?
1900 Park Fare Dinner Buffet
le Cellier Dinner
Liberty Tree Tavern Breakfast Buffet (we are going during CP Refurbish)
Rainforest Cafe Dinner
Whispering Canyon Dinner
50's Prime Time Cafe Dinner
Chef Mickey's breakfast buffet
we want to set cash aside in advance and not great at math!

Per the first post in this thread, what you tip is entirely up to you. To calculate the tip amounts, you can check the online menus on the Disney World site, here or on allears.

Hopefully this tip calculator helps you out with the math end of it once you have approximate dinner totals http://www.webmath.com/tip.html
