[FONT=Arial Black][SIZE=7][COLOR=Black]I always have trouble figuring out how much to tip various people during our trips to WDW. I probably tend to overtip (happily), but I am wondering what is appropriate. For example, baggage handlers at the airport suggest $1 or $2 each bag. Sounds right?
What about check in? If you are escorted to your room is it similar?
Lately, we’ve been staying at the FW Cabins (GREAT!!). While there is noone handling baggage, the housekeepers are so wonderful!! They clean the ENTIRE cabin, including the dishes, and make animal towels every day. Last time we left $50 for a one week stay. The day before checkout, our housekeeper came to see us personally, asking if we were happy with her services, and that she wouldn’t be there the next day. I know she came for her tip, but she deserved it, so I handed it to her instead of leaving the $ in the cabin. She seemed thankful, but I don’t know if it was appropriate. Come to think of it, someone cleaned our cabin the day she was off and I guess I neglected to leave a one-day tip… Sorry!
What about a regular room at a moderate? And, how do you make sure the tip you leave for a week’s stay gets to your housekeeper and not another housekeeper coming on-duty on your housekeeper’s day off? I just want to make sure deserving people are recognized and thanked for their good work.
