    Our whole family is so excited to return to WDW for another Magicial vacation. We have reserved 3 rooms at PO Riverside and have chosen the Service Your Way program. Should we still tip the cast members? Thank you. Janeese

    Hi Janeese, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are excited that you are excited!!

    I think you are really going to enjoy your upcoming stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.  In my opinion, the Riverside Mill Food Court has the best atmosphere of any of the Disney Resort Hotel food courts.  I find it so relaxing to dine while watching the mill wheel slowly turn outside the window.  One of my favorite amenities of this resort is the boat transportation to Disney Springs.  And don't miss Yehaa Bob Jackson, performing Wednesday through Saturday in the River Roost Lounge.  He is a true Disney legend!

    The Service Your Way program allows Guests to decline housekeeping services in exchange for a Disney eGift Card.  The amount of the card is based on the number of nights of your stay.  Since Mousekeeping will not be making up your room during your stay, it is not necessary to leave a tip.  If you do call to request fresh towels, additional toiletries, or trash removal, a tip to the person who delivers items to your room or removes trash would be appropriate.

    I hope that helps!  Have a wonderful stay, and please let us know if you have any additional questions.
