    I have been told that mousekeeping should be tipped. How much for a family of four and what all is included in mousekeeping?

    Hi Crystal,

    You could ask fifty people this question and get fifty answers I am sure. The official answer that I have always heard, is that mousekeeping is not considered a tipped position and therefore it is not necessary. A number of guests however do tip and the average is $1 per person per night for standard, or less expensive resorts, and $2 per person per night for upscale resorts. Your standard mousekeeping service will include the making of the beds, clean towels, garbage emptied, floors vacuumed and counter services wiped clean.

    I tip the mousekeepers about 50% of the time. If the service was very good, or I feel we left a particularly big mess to deal with (for example the time my son spilled m&m's everywhere), then I leave a note of thanks and a tip. You should do what you are comfortable with, and base it on the level of care you believe you received. If you do decide to leave a tip, be sure to leave it in an envelope marked Mousekeepers, or with a note so the Cast Member knows the money is for them to take.

    Hope this helps.
