gratuity question

Hi, just a quick gratutity question. We are being taken from a Disney Resort to the port. What is the typical gratutiy that we should pay? I have seen a few different things and I wasn't sure which one to follow. The website said 20% is expected but the faq section says about $15. This $15 does not reflect 20% of our cost (not even close). If anyone could me some advice, I would appreciate it! Thanks

20% is the standard tip for a limo, `15-20% for a towncar. You typically give the driver on each leg half the tip, you might not have the same driver both legs.

I'll speculate the $15 was the tip for one direction, maybe not even a cruise trip.

$15 sounds about right for an MCO<->WDW transfer. I usually go 15% for a cab, 20% for a town car, or thereabouts.

CNN had a pretty good article on tipping:

Anywhere from 15-20%. A ride to port, from WDW (one way) is going to be about $100, so $15 would be, obviously, $15. I usually tip about 20%, depending on service given.
