    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 ($100) is $469.48
    Resident or DVC Member (not AP holder) ($125) is $586.85
    Both of the above take into consideration that the Sales Tax is also discounted.

    The sales tax is also discounted with TIW?

    Discounted in the sense the tax is calculated on the total after the 20% TiW is subtracted.

    Yes. See the computation below:

    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.
