    We are a family of 5 and staying at POR for a week. Is it typical to tip the Mousekeeper, ME driver, and so on and if so how much and how often?

    Hi Shannon! This is one of those age old questions! The first thing you need to know is that tipping is not mandatory! If I have a driver on Magical Express who is exceptional, then I definitely tip him a few dollars per person. If we have bags stored below, then I usually tip a few dollars per bag.

    Disney's Mousekeeping is not a "tipped position", but often the service received is above and beyond. Depending on the number of people per room, you may want to leave a few dollars per person per night. I always hesitate leaving it until the end of my vacation, as there can be a shift change, and the person for whom it was intended might not receive anything. As such, I usually leave something daily. Be sure to leave it in a clearly marked envelope, so there is no confusion.

    Hope this helps Shannon! Thanks for the great question!
