Exclamation

I can't imagine paying for "Pixie Dust" at Disneyland or Disney World. It just doesn't seem like a Mickey-endorsed thing to do!

If the last 20 years' worth of check-in CMs are an indicator - I would say that it is NOT a good idea to tip them. They probably would assume you had a $20 bill stuck behind your license, and promptly hand it back to you!

Nope - not at Disney!

Lmao I should have said while checking into my room and when getting our seats at a topples magic show. That would have been 1 heck of a show in my room. Lol

Not sure if it's been said... but there's a saying... What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Just a little FYI, not sure if things have changed but when I worked at Disney 15 years ago (Wow, I did not realize it had been that long) we were told we must refuse the tip 3 times, after that we could take it and let our supervisor know, it was up to them whether we could keep it or not. Most supervisors would let you keep them but I had one that took it, never knew what he did with it.

But not to upgrade someone, as most have said on here that is more of a bribe, now if they just upgraded you for free and you tipped after the fact that would be different.

We can't accept money or anything.

I once had a guy who brought his dessert to-go and he was too full to eat it and didn't want it to go bad and his wife gave 2 pieces to us and we ran to the back and put it in our lockers.
I think that is the only thing we are technically allowed to accept..
If someone like forces money to us, we give it to our manager and they send it to guest services and its put into charity or something.

My husband has sent a food gift to concierge staff at the Bellagio in Vegas before we arrived since they helped us book shows and make reservations. We did not get an upgrade, but our seats to all 3 shows were TOP notch!!!

At WDW...we did the same for IPs when we went for our honeymoon and 5th anniversary. They got us all our reservations and answered all questions so quickly...and even called us when they had questions...We sent them a candy bouquet for all their help! We sent it before we arrived. We do this because they helped us, and in return we give them something for their whole team, not just for one person.

We have gotten upgrades and tipped afterwards in AC, but we have never tried to tip the front desk person in WDW.

You're being a tad bit oversensitive. No one is attacking you - they're just discussing the situation that you brought up.
