    Do local taxi companies take credit cards - or will cash be necessary? Also, are shuttle bus/boat drivers tipped for travel throughout the Disney transportation system? Thanks a bunch! We'd like to be as 'cash free' as possible! Leaving in 1 month! :-)

    Hi Elizabeth!

    I've always paid cash for a taxi at Walt Disney World.  I definitely recommend having some for that.  However, I did call and found out that all of the taxis at Walt Disney World are supposed to take credit cards as well; I have just never done it myself.

    For Disney transportation (monorail, buses, boats) through out Walt Disney World, you do not need to tip the driver at all.  However, I do always tip the Magical Express (bus transport to and from the airport) person if I have any luggage stored on board the bus that has to be off loaded.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
