Thumbs up GREAT ADVICE: How to use valet parking

Over the years on this forum, a lot of people have wondered: Who do you tip? How much? When?

At last, a pretty definitive answer:

Enjoy

Well now. Perhaps I need to copy that and send it to my step-mother. We head to the Seminole Hard Rock when I'm visiting her. She likes to valet so she doesn't have to walk far to the casino!!! I drive though since she has a vision issue. Well, I hand the valet, upon his/her taking my keys, about $2-3. She has a fit...says you don't tip them, you only tip when you pick up your car!! Yeah, well I don't much care. So, I continue tipping on both ends!!! Geez, is that addtl $3 going to kill you!!? Last January, I actually hid my tipping from her. It just wasn't worth the argument.

It's sort of like tipping "mousekeeping" every day of your WDW vacation rather than one cumulative amount at the end. You want to make sure your tips go to ALL the people that provide a service. You'll likely have different valets when dropping off versus picking up.
