    HI, what would you suggest to tip housekeeping at the Disney resorts ? Also, should we tip for the magical express to and from the airport ? if so, can you suggest a guideline to follow ? Thank you !

    Hi Sue! Tipping Mousekeeping and your Magical Express Driver are wonderful ways to show how much you appreciate the little extras these cast members provide to guests staying onsite at a Disney resort hotel every day!

    For the Magical Express Motor Coach to and from the airport, I would suggest you consider tipping a dollar per luggage item to anyone in your presence that provides you with direct assistance. If you have utilized the yellow Magical Express luggage tags and had Disney take your bags directly to the hotel for you, then you won’t see the person who’s handling your suitcases and so, tipping is not necessary.

    For Mousekeepers, it is customary to leave about a dollar per person staying in your guest room each day. So, for example, a family of four would provide a tip of about $4 per day. Ideally, you'd leave this gratuity in an envelope marked for your housekeeper so that it is clearly designated as a thank-you to her. A great idea for sprinkling pixie dust on this activity is to create "Mousekeeping Tip Envelopes" prior to your vacation. Simply perform an internet search for this topic and you'll be amazed at the creativity of some of the guests in sharing their very own magic with the Disney Cast Members!
