We get towel animals every time we visit, but last year was above and beyond excellent.
Few things we did...left a personal made tip envelope, then after the first couple of days I left a note saying how much my DD enjoyed coming home to the animals and then the staff went crazy. Every night we came home to my DD's "kids" doing something. Sometimes in the window...sometimes partying and watching TV. Even Minnie on the potty one night.
These are a couple of them

each one had a brush or styling tool in their hand adorable

Well hello there fellow WNYer! This pic is just too cute! Love the cake! Thank you for sharing! And we are very excited to decorate our envelopes!

I hope this was allowed, I assumed it was because she was the one that told us to do it. Oh and we did tip daily probably didn't make a difference but that is how we do it because I read once that you don't always get the same housekeeper so you should do it daily. Have a great trip.

Our last stay was only for 4 days but we still should have tipped daily. I sure hope Mousekeeper Elizabeth received her tip! And thank you! We have our master plan situated and already started to pack, so we are ready for a great trip!

We are staying for 8 days this time and I def will be tipping daily. Although we only stayed for 4 days last time, I don't know what we were thinking tipping at the end Can't wait to make out some mousekeeping envelopes! We may have to get all crafty!

Its our first stay at WDW in just over two weeks. We're staying at two of Disney's 'Value' resorts, POP and AOA and really hope we do see one towel animal during our stay!

Wow, you got a towel party! We got a few towel friends (the Towel Pluto was out favourite). They also set up the stuffies in various way (including wearing leis, we were at the Poly). Adds a little extra magic to your vacation

Wow! They're amazing! I hope we do get at least one. I'll understand if we don't since we're going at Spring break and the hotel will most likely be full. Can you bring these home with you or are they just for room decoration while you're at the resort?

I think they are meant for enjoyment in your room. We do not take them home.

We had two "ducks" half=way through our trip at POFQ. We were more than happy, though the poster with loads was really lucky.

I was under the impression the towels used would be thrown away as old so taking them home was fine. I know we have them on top of our TV at home now.

Its just that I read on another site (Mom's Panel I think its called?) that they're a gift for you to take home. I'll have a word with a cast member when I go and if we get any towel animals I'll see if we can bring them home with us. I just love the idea of them, so cute!

Outside of the Mickey head towel that everyone seems to get, this was the only other animal we had during our stay at the Poly last June.
