    My family is staying at WL Dec. 5-9. I saw somewhere that you unload luggage at the front door with bell services during check-in. We have only stayed at moderates before & unloaded luggage ourselves. Silly question: How much to tip? Love Moms Pane


    There's never a silly question here at the Moms Panel!  My thought: it's better to ask here when you're semi-anonymous than to be embarrassed later in person....

    The rule of thumb here in America for bell services holds true for Disney's resorts, especially at the Deluxe properties like Wilderness Lodge.  Typically, a tip of $1 to $2 per bag is the norm.  If you have especially large or heavy bags, you may want to tip a little extra or if you feel you receive exceptionally prompt or courteous service.

    To me, using a bell hop is worth my money so I'm not schlepping bags through the lobby, leaving a trail of dropped belongings in my wake.  My advice: load up the cart and let them do the heavy-lifting!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
