So you booked a vacation package for Walt Disney World. My room, tickets, and meals are all paid for so what do I need to bring money for beside souvenirs?

There are several cast members that you will encounter on your trip that you may want to tip in cash. Anyone that handles your luggage, you should tip $1-2 per bag. This includes curbside check-in at the airport, Magical Express, and bell hops at the resorts. You do not need to worry about tipping the cast member that delivers your bags to the room from Magical Express because you most likely will not be in the room. You should tip for salon services, Mousekeeping ($1 per person per day), valet ($2-5), and boat drivers. You can also choose to tip at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Harmony Barber Shop, and Pirate’s League. If you are on the dining plan, gratuity is not included on table service meals. It is customary to leave at least an 18% gratuity at table service meals. If you are in a party of 6 or more, a 18% gratuity is automatically included. Gratuity is also included with Cinderella’s Royal Table, Hoop-Dee-Do Revue, Spirit of Aloha Luau, and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ. These tips can be paid via cash, credit card, or MagicBand.Disney Dollar

Most other Cast Members cannot take tips but you can give them thank you notes or stop by guest relations to leave a compliment.
