    If you can afford a WDW vacation, you can afford to tip 20% and shouldn't be questioning the "why...?" You tip because that's what we do in this culture.

    Don't be this guy:

    Mr. Pink : I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
    If you weren't a Seinfeld fan, you won't get the reference.

    Exactly. Especially because there are more pressing issues, such as that the girl singin' [The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia] is the one who shot Andy.

Does the server work harder or differently depending on the cost of each item ordered? Tip should be a flat rate per person.
    Do you tip house keeping? We tip $1 per person per day (because we are 4 people I actually tip $5). Each day I leave out out $5 for the person cleaning the room that day. Should I tip differently if I am in a standard room or one with a water view? The rooms are the same size. The work is the same, but the cost per night is more expensive.
    For this exact reason I have started to base my tips on a per person rate plus one.
    We don’t frequent “high-end” restaurants but we have a local restaurant that we frequent about 2X a week. Most meals are under $20 and they have a $5 drink special daily. Our bill works out to ~$30/person. I usually give $5/person plus an additional $5.
    If we go to a cheaper diner, I still use the $5/person rule as I feel they do the same amount of work.
    If we have complicated orders or order multiple rounds of drinks, I will up that rate.
    I also always try to air on the side of over-tipping.
    If the server is truly horrible/rude and not just new, over-worked, having a bad day, etc., I will tip the normal amount but not necessarily over-tip.
    For Disney TS prices, I would raise the per person rate to be at least 20% plus.
