    HI, can you advise suggested tips for 1) mouse keeping & should we leave each day or end of stay ? 2) tip for magical express, 3) tip for the resort that takes us from the main lobby to our building ? any other tips that we should consider ?

    Hi, Sue!

    You are so kind to be thinking of the helpful cast members at Walt Disney World!  It takes a huge and amazing group to make our vacations so magical, and the cast members work very hard and appreciate the tips they receive from guests. 

    -I like to tip the Mousekeepers daily as you may not have the same person day after day.  I also leave an extra dollar or two if I request extra towels or shampoo.  (Optional)

    -Magical Express driver (the drivers are employed by the bus company, not Disney).  I usually tip a few dollars and then an extra dollar for each bag I bring with me that he/she must stow then unload for me at my resort. (Optional)

    -Restaurants are typically 15 - 18%.  For parties of 6 or more, an automatic 18% gratuity will be added (no gratuities at quick service).

    -If you plan to use any taxis during your stay, you may want to budget in for tips.

    -You have the option of using the Airline Check-in Service at your resort the day of your departure.  These are not Disney cast members, but work for the airlines.  I tip them when they tag my bags for me. 

    And, I am happy to say, tipping your very favorite Moms Panelists is not necessary, LOL!  We are happy to offer our services free of charge to our lovely guests - we are just happy to make your vacations MAGICAL!   Have a great vacation.
