    Maybe an odd question. We arrive at Port Orleans Riverside in a Royal Guest room on November 27th. What is a standard daily tip to leave for housekeeping? And what do we tip the bellhop? Thank you!

    Greetings, it's great to see you back at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mark!

    You're in for a royal treat as a Guest at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside in their Royal Guest Room. Walt Disney Imagineers went into great detailing with lavishly decorated themes, why, I remember hunting for hidden thematic decor and particularly enjoyed the interactive headboards during my recent stay.

    Disney housekeeping, or Mousekeeping, as we like to call it, is a personal decision, Mark. In my past experiences during my Resort hotel stay, I have had a different Mousekeeper throughout the same stay, so what I do now is leave gratuity, usually $1-$2 per Guest per day, in a marked envelope and I leave it on the night table for the Mousekeeper to see. This way, each Mousekeeper is properly acknowledged each day of my stay.

    Gratuities for Bell Services can be in the form of $1-$2 per piece of luggage and a little more if the luggage is heavy. Cast Members at Bell Services have always helped me and my family greatly during our arrivals and departures, we are so grateful to them. It is very considerate and thoughtful of you, Mark to be planning for gratuities during your vacation.

    1) You may wish to take a scenic walk over to the neighbouring Disney's Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter to try those delicious beignets.
    2) Please ensure you finish customization vacation details through My Disney Experience online.

    Best Disney Wishes!
