Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • About tipping. Should we tip the Magic Express bus driver, and the person who brings the bags to the room? And is it better to tip the maid daily, or at the end of the trip?
  • - Asked by Stuart from California on 11/8/2009
  • Hi Stuart,

    How thoughtful that you are thinking about whom to tip while on your Disney vacation.  Tipping is completely voluntary and subjective, however, I usually give the Magical Express driver and bell services a tip for good service.  As a rule of thumb, we give bell services approximately $1 a bag, and a bit more if we have particularly large or heavy bags (which, I have to say, I'm generally guilty of.)  We usually give the Magical Express driver about $5 .  I prefer to tip "Mousekeeping" daily rather than at the end of our stay, because I'm never sure that the same person will be working and responsible for our room for our entire stay. 

    Thanks for your thoughtfulness, and have a wonderful trip!
