    We have a dining plan and I know tips are not included. What is the best way to leave a tip? Cash, use our wristband to charge it, or a separate charge card?

    Hi Penny! Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    A few days ago, I left my keys in a department store. I put them down to look at an item and didn't realize I was missing them until I was ready to leave the store. I perpetually do the same thing when visiting restaurants. When my kiddos were younger, I cannot tell you how many sippy cups and hand sanitizer I lost because I left them behind. (I did find my keys by the way.)

    I'm sure you are much more responsible than I am but my choice for gratuities is to put them on my MagicBand and have them charged to my Disney Resort hotel room. I clearly need someone to create a MagicBand for my everyday life! I love the convenience of the MagicBand when I am visiting Walt Disney World Resort. It's so convenient and enables me to enjoy every magical moment of my vacation without having to keep up with credit cards or cash.

    You are more than welcome to use a different form of payment but MagicBands are secure all-in-one devices and are a great choice!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if I can assist with any other tips or advice as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
