With Disney’s constant increase in prices one thing we don’t do a whole lot of now is table service dining. The prices are absurd and through the roof. But we still may do one or two. And also with the rise in prices are the rise in the amount of tip that should be paid. I have never and will never stiff a waiter on a tip, but I admit to wondering if most people still are paying the 18-20% suggested tip or paying less?
Personally I think a tab of over $200 for a family of four at Chef Mickeys for dinner is crazy. But you also have an expected tip of close to $40 to add on to that. $40 for buffet dining? I have read that many of the servers make more money than school teachers in Florida. I just wonder if most people who eat these meals with a tip expected are paying at least the 18% or just throwing out a pre-set number they have determined before hand?
