Concierge Suite Service

If you’re staying in a Club Level room with special dedicated concierge service, you’ll want to tip according to your usage of the service, the length of your stay, and the number of people in your party. Fifty or 100 dollars, or much more, is not unheard of if you’ve made extensive use of their personal attention.


Tipping Mousekeeping at Disney World

The maid/housekeeping service at Walt Disney World is often referred to as Mousekeeping. These service Cast Members do accept tips. It is customary to leave $1 per day per person in the room for the housekeeper. Be sure to clearly label cash as a tip for the housekeeper, so they are sure to know it is for them.

There are several cute envelopes and thank-you notes available online that can be used to clearly designate that money is being left as a tip. Here are a few examples of Mousekeeping Envelope printables.

Bars / Lounges

If you’re just having drinks, $2-3 dollars per drink is the right amount. If you’re also getting food, go with 18-20%.

Room Service (in-room dining)

A gratuity of 15-20% is customary in all room service situations, and Disney is no different.

T-Rex at Disney Springs is an interesting restaurant for tipping. For 99% of their meals, a tip is not included in the price of the meal. However, on 8 mornings a year (Saturdays and Sundays in December), T-Rex opens for a breakfast with Santa & Mrs Claus. It's a buffet meal, and taxes & tips are included in the price of the meal.
