    during my week at Disney World where is the best place to break bills coming out of the ATM so I can tip my waiters at meal time and what is the amount of tip expected for housekeeping each day? no offense but i am on limited funds now that my trip is pd4

    Hi Sheri!  It's great that you are planning your budget ahead of time so that you don't have to worry about it once you are there.
    Generally, I try and bring smaller bills with me by stopping at my local bank before leaving.  However, there have been some trips that I forgot to do that, so this is what I have done.  I have gone to the gift shops inside my resorts and had them break my larger bills into smaller increments.  I have also done this at the concierge/ticket desk in my resort lobby.  Most stores throughout the parks will be able to do this for you as well.  And I am sure that you can do it at the restaurants if you forget to ahead of time.
    As for housekeeping, that is really a personal decision.  The "mousekeepers" at Disney are really good at their jobs, so I think it is wonderful that you are planning to reward them for it.  I personally try to tip about $5.00/day and if I can, I leave a larger tip at the end of my stay.  Again, they don't require this, but it is a wonderful gesture for a job well done!
    Thanks for sending in your question.  I hope this helps.  Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan for your magical vacation!  Have a great trip!
