    We are going to WDW in late August, who do you generally leave gratuity/tips too? And how much do you normally tip someone?

    Hello Terri and thanks for bringing such an important question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    Oh boy! An Incredible Summer at Walt Disney World Resort truly awaits you this coming August and I can bet that you're already super excited now your long awaited visit is almost appEaring just around the river bend!
    As the current British Mum here on the Panel I always find myself keeping an additional eye on my families tipping habits whilst we holiday in the United States of America.  Which is why I'm more than happy to share that we usually tip around 15%-20% at Disney Table Service restaurants for good service plus at our Disney Resort Hotel we generally leave Mousekeeping a few dollars each day (especially when requesting additional toiletries or coffee sundries) and of course thank Cast Members at Bell Services with around $1 per bag when they've assisted with our luggage and similarly if we've utilised the services of Valet Parking.
    That being said gratuities are already included within the cost of select Dinner Shows the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show & Mickey's Backyard BBQ plus it may be useful to know that tables of 6 or more Guests incur an automatic gratuity of 18%.
    Wishing you an extra magical upcoming August trip to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.
