    Hi there, we will be coming to Disneyworld Oct 17th to Oct 23rd, and are staying at the beach club villas. I was just reading about tipping housekeeping, and the mom answering the question suggested tipping the Cast Members. How do I go about doing this?

    Howdy Wendy!  I'm so glad you are planning ahead and including tipping housekeeping during your stay.  They do a great job!

    As FYI, so you know the schedule, I have included information below so that you have the details regarding when you will receive housekeeping services.  This information can be found under the Help & Contact section of the Disney Vacation Club Member website.  Based on your stay, you will receive Trash and Towel service during your stay.

    "Disney Vacation Club Resorts are condominium-style Resorts, designed to offer the comforts of home, and so daily housekeeping is not provided.
    •Stays of 7 or less nights: "Trash & Towel" service on day 4; Stays of 8 or more nights, full service on day 4, "Trash & Towel" on day 8.
    •If you would like, these services are available to you more frequently for a fee."
    We typically take pre-printed envelopes (or pre-printed slips of paper) that say "Mousekeeping" on them that are pre-filled with the tip (not necessary to just saves us a bit of time when we are leaving our villa in the morning) and leave the envelope out on the day of our service(s) and the day we check-out.

    I hope this helps you in your planning.  Please let me know if you have any further questions about tipping other Cast Members and have a magical day!!
