    Love the panel! Read a ? about tipping for taking bags to the room. We are driving so not using ME. Plan on checking in early before room is ready and going straight to parks. How can we make sure bell hop gets a tip? Thanks!!

    We have driven to WDW and checked in to our room early on many trips. Now and then, you'll find that your room is ready.

    Here's what we do:
    1. Drive up to the resort and use short term parking while we Check-In.
    2. If room is ready, pull up car and have Bell Services take luggage to be delivered to our room.
    3. Give tip to Bell Hop upon arrival at room.

    If room is not ready:
    Have Bell Services store your luggage. Tip the person helping you.
    Later, when you are in your room. Call Bell Services to bring luggage to your room. Tip the Cast Member that delivers the luggage.

    If you are not using Magical Express, your luggage will not be delivered to your room until you call for it.

    Also, you could keep our luggage in your car until your room is ready. Then have Bell Services bring the bags directly to your room later in the day.

    Hope this helps!
