    Hi Moms! Still nervous about the tipping here--I am Canadian, should I stock up on US money for the Mousekeeping, or will a Canadian bill tickle their fancy? How about everywhere else? Should I use Canadian or US money??

    American dollars are preferred, as it is not always easy to find an exchange location for Canadian currency in Florida.

    Because tipping etiquette is a question that comes up often, here are a few US standards to use as a guideline.

    Housekeeping - $1 per person, per day.

    Bell services - $1-2 per bag, more if they are unusually large or heavy.

    Magical Express drivers - $1-2 per bag or per person

    Hair Salon/Spa services - 15-20%

    Waiters/Waitresses - 18%

    Taxi Driver - 15%

    Parking Valet - $2-5

    Hope that helps, and have a great vacation!
