    Here is a working example, using $100.00 as the original bill to make the math show up easily. Note this is for Table Service. At Counter Service there is no gratuity added.

    100.00 - Original Menu Amount
    *20.00 - Discount
    *80.00 - Subtotal
    *18.00 - Gratuity Added based on $100
    **5.20 - Sales Tax on $80
    103.20 - Final amount charged, takes into consideration discount, gratuity and tax.

    Without TiW Discount (and still figuring 18% Gratuity)

    100.00 - Original Menu Amount
    *18.00 - Gratuity
    **6.50 - Sales Tax on $100
    124.50 - Total

    $21.30 - Savings using TiW Card.

    (Note - At Victoria and Albert's the added gratuity is 20% instead of 18%.)
    * Ignore the asterisks; they are there only so the columns/numbers line up properly.

    For the complete list of locations and the rules, go to www.tablesinwonderland.com which is the Official Disney site.

    Based on the new pricing, the following is the break-even point for menu pricing (assuming you will routinely give an 18% tip):
    AP Holder or DVC Member ($100) is $469.48
    Resident (not AP holder) ($125) is $586.85
    Both of the above take into consideration that the Sales Tax is also discounted.

    Earl of Sandwich gives a 15% discount for AAA Members. I use that there as they only give Cast Members a 10% discount.

    Thanks for the tables in wonder breakdown. I am considering it for our next trip instead of dining plan. My only concern is that not many counter services take it.

    I am actaully thinking of cancelling the dining plan that I have for 4 nights of of my 9 night stay ( I am staying at more than one resort) and going with TIW. Reason being I ran the numbers and for us to break even on the DDP our lunch has to be $15.30 and our snack $3. Now you may say that lunch it is easy to hit that target but not when my DH doesn't like desserts and I have a DD who will have just turned 10 and I need to pay for the adult DDP for her I don't believe I will.

    Whats the word on free dining? We have taken advantage of this from time to time in years past but I've heard that they will no longer be offering the "free dining" just discounting the dining plans?

    Pumba, was that list for TIW, or AAA?


    If TIW, we got the discount at the food court at AOA last month. I didn't see it listed there.

    I know that there are a couple places that do not take TIW but do take the DVC discount like Yak & Yeti I believe. We are bringing our DVC card too just in case.

    Do you know what restaurants will give an AAA discount?

    Also what about the Chase Disney debit card?

    I think the answer is yes, but, can I use TIW for My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party? I haven't booked yet, and it would tip my decision if it was.
