WDW tipping

Aside from dining and mousekeeping, what other things should I take into account and budget for ahead of time? Do you tip at BBB?

The only other thing we tip for is Magical Express (both ways) and taxis (it's a rare treat after a long day).

We've never done BBB.

IIRC, most cast member positions aren't allowed to accept tips?

We tip at BBB, if we take a taxi, and for the ME (usually $1 per bag they have to handle and an extra $1).

If you have a party of 6 or more be prepared that at table service meals you will automatically be charged 18% my parents joined my family of 4 even though we had separate dining plans we were both charged 18%
