    Thanks for your help so far. In Aust it is not the norm to tip. Do we need to tip the ME driver and the bus drivers from Pop to the parks and downtown Disney. If so how much is expected or usual to tip them? We don't want to offend anyone.

    Hi Natalie!
    Magical Express is one of the amazing perks that are offered to guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotels.  Being able to take your luggage to your home airport and not have to think about it until you are settled into your room at the resort is a perk I totally love.  No waiting for your bags to come around the carousel, nor having to drag them through the hotel is pampering at its best. 
    Plus, when you are (sadly) leaving the resort, you can take part in resort check-in and your bags will be taken to the airport for you, so all you have to do is get on ME and head to the airport.
    Tipping is always welcome for exceptional service on Magical Express.  The general recommendation is $1.00 per person for the trip, and $2.00 if the ME driver assists you with any bags/cargo that you might be bringing aboard. 
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
