    My question is, who within the hotel do you tip? We are staying at the Art of Animation in the Finding Nemo suite and using the Disney ground transportation. Do you tip the driver, how often do you leave a tip for housekeeping and how much? Thank you.

    Hi Cyndy!

    You've asked a great question!  When at Walt Disney World, you'll find there are only a few times that you'll need to tip at your resort.  These times include: your Disney's Magical Express Motorcoach Driver, Bell Services Staff, and Airline Resort Check-in Staff.  All of these folks will be handling your baggage, and it's customary to tip $1-$2 per bag for their help.  

    Disney Transportation will be taking you to and from the parks to your resort.  It is not customary to tip these drivers, but they always appreciate a heartfelt "Thank you," or "Have a great day!"

    Tipping Housekeeping or "Mousekeeping" as many call it, is a very much appreciated gesture, and if you choose to do so, make sure you do it on a daily basis, as there might be a different Cast Member servicing your room on any given day.  The average is $2-$3 a day.  

    Have a magical vacation!
