    I was wondering if we should tip the magical express driver/the cast members? If so about how much is good to leave? Along with the mousekeeping/cleaning staff. Thank you 1st timers! So excited! 26 days until we leave!

    Hello there, Misty!

    I know you must be so ready for your First Visit to Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting!

    Tipping is always at your discretion, but I usually tip the Magical Express bus driver if he assists me with my luggage. Sometimes I have a stroller or a carry-on bag that he will take and stow for me, so I always tip in that case. I also leave a tip for the housekeeper every day before we leave the room. One of the things I enjoy most about vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort is not having to clean up or make beds for a few days. So, I try to show my appreciation for the hard work that they do because I know what it's like cleaning up after my family!  Other than our waiters/waitresses and bell services, I believe those are the only Cast Members that I tip. Of course, it's always up to you to decide and I'm sure that whatever you choose to leave will be greatly appreciated.

    I hope you have a wonderful time on your upcoming vacation. Make lots of magical memories and enjoy every moment!
