Tipping on Dining Plan

I'm going for a short 2 night stay the 31st through the 2nd (only 4 days away!) and we are using the Dining Plan for the first time. I know all about the plan but didn't know what was the best way to tip while using the plan. Cash, charge to KTTW, or can you use a visa/mastercard?

I usually tip in cash since it's the easiest. I have charged it to the room when I realize I don't have enough cash on me.

The "best" way is whatever you want.

Cash is easiest? Really? Go get wallet. Start counting the money. Might have to wait for changw.

I would think KTTW card is easier.

It's easiest for me. I always have a small purse with smaller bills specifically for tips . On our last trip I used my TIW card and put everything on a Disney Giftcard so I didn't need cash. To me that's easier then cash or KTTW. On the DP though I almost always paid the tip in cash so I didn't have to wait to sign anything. I prepare myself before the trip with smaller bills for this reason.

We use gift cards. That way our tips are prepaid before our trip. It really isn't any more of a hassle than using the KTTW, but then its not on our credit card at the end of the trip.

Have any of you used a visa/mastercard? How would this work if you did use one?

You would just tell your server you would like to put the tip on whatever card you want to use . It would work the same as the Disney Giftcard or KTTW

We went in the fall of 2011 and had the free dining. Hubby tipped every one of our servers $20 each, because they were awesome and very attentive.
