    Hi! We are going to WDW in 6 days from Spain. I would like to know which are the usual tips we should give in a restaurant, hotel, bus drivers. Here we usually don't tip I´m lost in this matter. Thanks.

    Maria,

    -If you are using Magical Express (Disney's transportation that picks you up at the airport and takes you to your resort), we usually tip the driver because he helps you with baby strollers, carry-ons, luggage, etc.  I'd suggest at least $1 per bag or stroller that you have with you.

    -Resort transportation (the buses to the theme parks) - no need to tip these drivers.

    -Baggage handling at your resort (the people that bring your bags to your room, or if you check your luggage to be held on your last day before departure) - again, we do $1 per bag.

    -Housekeeping at your resort (the maids that clean daily) - we leave $1 per person, per day, so $5 daily for our family of 5.

    -Dining - if your group is 6 or more people the gratuity might be added to your bill automatically - be sure to double check.  If the gratuity is not added, we leave 15-25% of the check total as a tip.

    -Valet Parking - We give $3 on drop off and delivery.

    -SkyCap (the baggage handler at the airport) - $1-$2 per bag.

    I hope this helps you with your planning!
