Generally speaking...
1. Bell Services gets about $1 per bag

2. If I ride DME and feel that my driver gave exceptionally good service, I tip $2-3.

3. At restaurants, I tip at about 20%. If the service is subpar, I tip less and mention why to a manager if there is one in the area.

4. Housekeeping is a subject of great debate. Some like to leave $1 pp each night. Disney tells us that housekeepers are not a tipped position....but many guests just want to leave something.

5.Valet gets about $3 or so each time I interact with them.

I can't think of anyplace else that would normally mandate tipping. Anyone else??

I agree with Goofy.

I usually tip housekeeping $5 if it is just DH and myself and $10 if it is all 5 of us in a family suite.

I am never in the room when DME delivers the bags so I don't tip them.

Last trip when we took all 7 of our bags down to the resort airline check in desk and they processed our bags in to be taken to the airport I tipped them $10.

I always tip 20%-30% at sit down restaurants. Closer to 20 on large tabs and closer to 30 when it is just Dh and myself and the bill is small.

We tip DME driver $2, because we have 2 carry-ons that driver stows under the bus in cargo hold. Even if we didn't have luggage we'd still tip him.

Mousekeeping $1 per person, per day. We leave the tip every day on bathroom counter under their name tag.

Bell Service and anyone who handles our luggage, $1 per piece of luggage.

Dining, we tip between 18% & 20%.
