I would like to know who you tip from the beginning of your stay, throughout the resort, until the end.

Please start your list of people from the time you get off the plane, until you get back on the plane.

I am clueless, so please be thorough, and list how you arrive at the tip you give to each person.

I will look forward to your reply.

You did forget, that there could be tips before you get on the plane as well... Here is a list of people we tip:

Driver from off-site parking lot: $1 - $2 per bag
SkyCap for curbside check-in: $1 - 2 per bag
SkyCap at luggage carrossel: $1 - $2 per bag
note: We don't use this service, usually rent a luggage cart
for $3
Valet at hotel: $2 each time we either drop off/pick up
Bellman who takes luggage from car: $1 - $2 per bag
Bellman who delivers luggage: $1 - $2 per bag
Maid: Usually $1 - $2 per day per person, also $1 per day per person for turndown service
All servers: 15% - 20% of check depending on service
Bellman who takes luggage from room: $1 - $2 per bag
Bellman who loads luggage into car if different: $1 - $2 per bag
SkyCap for Curbside check-in: $1 - $2 per bag

I can't think of anything else, so if I forgot someone, I don't not tip them, I just forgot!!!

I don't fly to WDW, so I can't help with those. Here's my list:

valet: $2 per getting of car

bellman: usually about $1-2 per bag

mousekeeping: $5 per day

waiters/waitresses: 20% (and a little more if it's GREAT service)

I think that's it. :)

jel0511, great list.

I would add these:
Driver of a Limo or town car-$20 when he dropped us off at the resort, he helped with bags at the airport and the grocery store. Then $10 when he dropped us off at the airport.

Restaurant wait staff-15%-35% Yeah 35% is high. But the service was THAT good.

I did notice that there are ussually 2 different belman that handle your luggage. I used to feel bad when I had a lot of luggage or heavy pcs. Then when I realized I was paying them the $10 for about 3 minutes of work I got over it.

Great list:
add--If you get a drink at a bar you should tip the bartender. (15-20%--usually $1-$2 per drink)


Disney doesn't list houskeeping as a tipped position although many tip.
