    Hi I will be taking a disney cruise vacation and was wondering on budgeting for tips how much should i tip?

    Hi Monica,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, and thank you for your question!

    I'm happy to hear that you are already working the gratuities into your vacation budget.  While there is never a requirement to tip - I have always felt that the service aboard the Disney cruise ships is well worthy of the recognition that leaving a gratuity provides.

    Thankfully Disney Cruise Line has simplified this process and makes it very easy to give the cast members the recognition they deserve.  You are provided envelopes at the end of your voyage to use at your discretion for providing gratuities and you can easily charge them your shipboard account.  To see the current recommended guidelines click HERE.

    Hope this helps - have a great cruise!
