I always tip on the total bill amount at TS - I usually get an alcoholic drink and a glass of water so I figure it evens out I'd tip on a soda, so why not a wine?

Tipping at bars works out at ~15-20% anyway as a drink is usually $5-7, depending on what you have.

This is also what we do,
We often have a few cocktails with dinner and always just add it with the overall tip at the end!

It's just me being tight - we only tend to have a bottle of wine at a few meals due to the cost. In fairness at the Cali Grill - where the top up our glasses it does not bother me - but one restaurant - I think it was Saana they bought us an open bottle and placed it on the table

Sadly having an alcoholic beverage is not cheap at Disney! We do tend to buy some beers and wine for the supermarket and sit with these in our resort mugs by the pool!
