Tipping Mousekeepers during vacation
 
Just curious if any of you tip house keeping and how much per day. Just a little debate were if people still due. I say yes but some say no. Just curious if any of you have any input.

We usually tip $1 per person per day. I also tip every day.

There is 5 of us and we typically tip $5, unless we have been especially messy or need to ask for a bunch of extra stuff

We tip $5 a day. We are also a family of 5. Usually, at the end of our stay, we tip a bit more if our service has been great but $5 per day is typical. My kids just decorated an envelope tonight for one of the days. We make it a family event..lol.

We tip $5/day for family of 3.

We tip $5.00 per day for husband and I and left more our last day. We used envelopes we found on another site and would leave notes to thank our Mousekeeper. I think we lucked out since we had towel animals waiting for us almost every day. Husband and I are neatnicks so room was pretty clean. :blush:

I tipped $2/day for a 6 day stay.

Mousekeeping created a different and fantastic 'Towel Animal' each day when the made up the room which my kids loved. Not sure if they would do that if you don't tip. Room was made up early too so no problems with me wanting to tip.

I don't tip anything to be honest. I don't see the need to leave money for somebody simply for them doing their job. If there was some way they could go "above and beyond" then I would consider it, but leaving a clean room is what they are supposed to do.

I will say that in 3 trips staying at both value and deluxe resorts, I've never had anything less than a clean room every day of my stay without leaving any "extra", so in my experience it's unnecessary.

I had never heard of tipping housekeeping until coming to this site... we do tip for bags, taxis, waiters, etc, but never housekeeping. :confused3

We feel it's a personal service, that a tip is (usually) well deserved, and we will typically leave $5 per day.

:goodvibes

We tip $5 per day there are 4 of us. I try to straighten up as much as I can. Lol

2012DisneyWorldBride 04-28-2013 11:25 PM

We tip $4 a day for 2 of us for Mousekeeping and for turndown we tip $2 a day.
