    Tip what you would normally as if the bill wasn't covered. (So if that's 20%, then tip 20%.)

    Right. Tips are at the discretion of the customer and are still based on quality of service. And whatever is within your budget.

    Keep in mind, some places will let you know what the suggested tip is.

    Thank you. I read that tip is included at CRT. Is that true? Are there any others where it is included?

    Re: Dinning Plan and tips

    your recipet will have at the bottom a "tip estimator"...15-30% breakdown...be prepared for it to be kinda hefty if you are dining at a table service and its based on your total bill...our tips were between $10-$15 dollars, thank goodness CRT was included on the DDP!!

    Re: Dinning Plan and tips

    I hope the tip suggested by Disney at the bottom of the bill is based on price before tax and not after. But again, take 10% of the (pre-tax) bill and double it if you feel the service was great. A bit lower for average and a bit more for excellent. It's not rocket science.

    We don't tip here in Australia, so this is going to be quite weird for me, and something I am going to have to remember to do.
