  • [Question] WDW Servers

    Does anyone here have knowledge of what the average server makes at table service meals? I know it fluctuates based on restaurant and all that, but I'm looking for a good number to go with. Thanks.

    Are you asking what their hourly pay is or what their tips should be?

      I'm trying to get a sense of how much the average server makes in tips in a given time period, whether it be a day or whatever have you. Also, hourly wage would help as well. Thanks.

        Whatever that number is, it's Not Enough For The Bull**** They Go Through

          From our experience just chatting with restaurant cast members their hourly pay is in the low single digits. Their tips vary widely. Tips depend on where the guest is from. Guests from other countrys have very different tipping habits than americans. Then you have the guests on meal plans that still think that the gratuity is still included which it doesn't.
          They have a tough job. We generally tip 20% for good service. The castmembers we know that work in the restaurants are not getting rich. They have great days and not so great days. Hopes this will help.

            It's not something to try and make a living off of but you'll make good money if it's a summer job or something like that.

            Also, whtmtn, I see you're from Groveland! I'm from North Andover!

                  While a server can legally be paid as little as $2.13/hour, the employer must make up the difference if the addition of tips does not equal minimum wage ($7.25/hour).

                      Can you ask him for a general idea on what a server makes?

                        From those I have spoken too, it really depends on where they work, how long they have been there, and how good they are.
                        I've heard everything from $3 up to $5!

                            It's not the hourly rate that matters. It's the tips that really add up, I know some servers who work in the castle (Cinderella's Royal Table) make up and over $200 a night.

                              Yes I'd imagine that servers working at the premier restaurants make a very good amount of money given the occupation. I'd go so far as to say a good waiter at Cinderell'as Royal Table could make pretty close to 75k a year combining their salary and tips.

                              If we're talking Casey's Corner or even the Crystal Palace though, you're probably not going to make enough to make a living off of it.
