Well considering that those people at McDonalds make at least minimum wage and servers at WDW make $4.80 per hour....no. McDonalds isn't a tipped restaurant WDW buffets are.
Justify it however you want but at every buffet you ate at it cost someone money to have you in their station.

Do you tip when mc ds brings you fries after you are sitting down?
Fast food workers are paid at the very least, minimum wage for the service they provide so there is no need to leave a tip. Waiters, waitresses, and bartenders are not. They are paid about $2 an hour for the service they provide. If you can afford to go to Disney, you can afford to leave a decent tip and by that I mean, at the very least, 15% of what your total bill would be. Please THINK the next time you go to a buffet and leave a tip. Seriously.

My comment wasn't about "non buffet places". 10%? Really? You should be ashamed and embarrassed to even post that. You have enough money to pay for the deluxe dining plan and you scrimp on tipping?? That sounds logical.

Mom and Dad always taught me if you can't afford the tip you can't afford the meal. We tip %18-20+

This. My mother was a server my entire life and I would never not leave a tip. Even at a buffet, a server does a lot(and like with basically all restaurants there are probably things they do that you don't see) and for significantly less than minimum wage. They rely on tips to make their living and to deny them that because you(general you) are cheap is just wrong.
