    We are doing the Pirate & Pals Cruise, Behind the Seeds, Pirate League (DS). How much should I tip at these events? We are a family of three: me, DH, and DS(7). Arrive day after Thanksgiving. Getting my tip envelopes ready! Thank You

    Hi there Randy!

    Thanks for popping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!
    It sounds like you've planned some wonderful, magical "extras" for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    Tipping is never mandatory or even 'expected' at most experiences around the Disney Parks & Resorts. At Special Tours and Experiences such as the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Cruise, (one of my absolute favourites!) Behind the Seeds Tour and The Pirates League, a tip is not expected and in fact I've never seen an occasion at those locations where a tip has been offered. Just enjoy these events with your family! I think my family has enjoyed Behind the Seeds three times now! It's a fantastic and very interesting tour.

    Places where your fun, tip envelopes will be well-received and graciously accepted include your Resort Room for your 'MouseKeeper' (be sure to leave a note or mark your envelope well such that the Mousekeeper realizes that it is meant for them to take - daily or at the end of your stay) and for your Bell Services and Disney's Magical Express Cast Members and drivers.

    Of course tipping is also appropriate at Table Service Dining locations, however this can be charged to your Key To The World Card or credit card, or left as cash inside the billfold.

    I hope this information helps you to prepare for your upcoming vacation. Please feel free to write me back if you have additional questions. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Randy!
