    Taking our 1st Disney cruise in March, 7 night W. Carribean. Confused about who to tip. Do you tip the cast members in the kids' clubs too besides servers and state room host? I have heard about people giving them gift cards or candy too as tips. Help!

    Hi Robert,

    Congratulations on booking your first Disney Cruise!  Tipping guidelines are outlined HERE, and you'll notice that the Youth Activities Counselors are not included in this list.  Although on the "cruise fan" websites you'll find some guests that do give special treats to these counselors -tipping is not suggested, expected or required.  I'm all about the tipping - and tend to go a bit over and above the suggested guidelines, but I have never felt compelled to tip the youth counselors - and have never noticed anyone else doing so.

    I hope this helps!
