    Hi again. Tipping here is not a set % and as someone that never carries cash I need help with who to tip and how much so that I can ensure I have cash to cover. disney travel h/keeping Concierge park assistants? etc

    Hi, Natasha!

    Tipping is at your discretion, but here are some guidelines.  Remember that the better the service, the better the tip!

    -Table Service meals:  Parties of 6 or more 18% of bill.  Parties less than 6 guests, 15 - 18%
    -Quick Service meals:  No tipping
    -Housekeeping:  $3 - $5 per night (optional)
    -Bell services/luggage assistance:  $1 - $2 per bag
    -Magical Express driver (loads and unloads your luggage/drives to/from airport):  $5 (optional)
    -Front desk cast members/concierge:  No tipping

    If you find any exceptional service, you may increase your tip or even ask for the manager to let them know how a cast member went above and beyond with great pixie dust treatment.  If you have a question about any other proper tips once you get to WDW, you can always ask the front desk concierge for their advice.  They will be happy to advise you.   Have a great trip, and how very kind of you to be ready to tip for the great service you will receive!
