    Exactly. You asked if it was true and I said no it wasn't true

    The ONLY restaurants that include tip in the cost of the meal are:

    Cinderella's Royal Table
    The three dinner shows: Spirit of Aloha Luau, Hoop de Doo Revue, Mickey's Backyard Barbecue

    Anything else, the guest comes up with the tip. No matter what Allears is saying, LTT does not include the tip in the cost of the meal at either lunch or dinner.

    For parties of six or more, the tip amount is set automatically at 18% but it is not part of the cost of the meal, the guests must pay it in addition to the cost of the meal (except for the four events already listed).

    Room service includes a service charge.

    Two questions. Sorry if they have been asked before. Is the 18% and 20% tip options that Disney puts on the receipt based on the amount before or after tax? Also, if we are a party of 9 but want to split the bill into two separate bills (party of 5 and party of 4) will they still automatically add the 18% to EACH bill?
    Thanks!

    Not sure about the before tax or after, but I do know if you split the tip is still applied...

    Just answered my own question. It is added before tax. I checked a receipt someone posted on the dining review board. Thanks again!

    the smiths (party of 5) have a bill of 150. the joneses(party of 4) have a bill of 100. the smiths added tip wil be 27 an the jonses tip will be 18. (each bill has a tip of 18% of that bill only added.) (if the bill had not been split, the tip would be 45. see it's the same either way.)

    pre tax. All tipping in the US is based on pre tax amount, though most people tip on the full amount just by not paying attention.

    You should tip, but you can probably tip a bit less than you normally would if you want.

    I'm sure this has been answered but there are too many pages to go through. Are gratuities included at Cinderellas royal table if I am on the disney dining plan? Or do I tip?:confused3:confused3

    I am not sure if this has been asked before...but here goes:

    We usually do the DDP and use our Chase Visa Disney Rewards to pay for our tips. Our next trip will be our first trip without the DDP, instead we will be using TIW discount. Is it possible to pay for the meal with gift cards then use our Disney Rewards to pay for the tips????

    Yes, just give both to the server and explain which you want to use for which one

    I'm wondering the same thing..but can you pay tips with a giftcard? We are on the DDP so I am unsure how it works when it comes to the actual tips and if they have to charge them to our room, etc. Any ideas? Also, my idea is to buy them at Target so I can save a little money. ;)
