    If going on the Pirate and Pals fireworks cruise do you give a tip? If so who do you tip and what would be customary?

    Greetings from one "Amanda" to another and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so happy you stopped by today for Disney vacation planning advice!  I am more than happy to help.

    You guys are in for a real treat with the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise.  It honestly has to be one of my favorite experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort because my family really gets into the spirit and some of us (my husband, mainly, but don't tell him I said so) even believe we are real swashbucklers on a high seas adventure.

    Tipping is not mandatory or expected at most of the special Walt Disney World Resort experiences, and I, personally, have never tipped or felt obligated to when participating.  I have not noticed other guests tipping during these events and in most cases, Cast Members are not allowed to accept gratuity.  

    The exception here would be Mousekeepers, Bellmen, Valet, Bus Drivers, and of course, restaurant servers and bartenders.  The special experiences and tours are there for your family to enjoy, so please don't feel obligated to tip.

    Magical wishes,

    Amanda F.
