I hope this question is allowed, but if not, please delete:
We'll have the pleasure of dining at V & A this August. I'm uncertain as to what percentage would be an appropriate tip for such fine dining. We'll be at the Chef's Table, if that makes a difference.
Normally I tip 20%. I assume I would increase that, but by how much?
I know this is a personal matter, but would appreciate a little guidance. I was thinking maybe 25 - 30%???
Do we tip the sommelier separately? Tho we love fine dining, we've never experienced anything on this level.
Thank you.

cash tipping

I am going in january and will be on the dxdp. Now my question is since we have to pay with our bands or KTTK cards. What do we place when we wanting to tip cash. Do we put the amount in the tip area but explain we are paying cash. Do we leave blank then place the money on the table, or do we simply write cash in the line and put the money in the sleeve as well. would it be easy for us to just put it on a card?

No. Do not do that.

Either of those are fine. Most people prefer to write "cash" or draw a line through where the tip goes.

You won't be able to just pay for the tip with a credit card, but you can just use your magic band to charge it to your room.


Dining at WDW (even on the dining plan) works just like dining at any other restaurant in the US. Just think of using your magic band as being the same as using a credit card.

Actually you can. You write the tip amount on the tip line and insert your credit card in the sleeve. Tell the server to remove your dining credits and charge the tip to the credit card

Hmm...I didn't realize that.
