We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Smile No desire to see it.

Leaving a nice tip for the maids the first morning MAY increase your chances of getting a towel animal. I know on cruises every time we leave a small tip on a towel animal, the next day we get an even bigger and better towel animal.

No way! I like towel animals but, for me, part of the fun is the element of surprise . If I knew I was getting one it wouldn't be as much fun. Besides I can think of other things I'd rather spend my money on.

Heck no! Considering we stay about 10 nights, that would be $200 extra for towel animals!

Let it be pixie dust! Stop expecting these things and set realistic expectations. If people keep complaining because they don't get towel animals Disney is likely to say "forget it".

As for the poll, I would not pay extra to get them but don't mind giving a small gratuity for a surprise one.

We had a towel animal every day of our last stay.

I don't tip housekeeping.

They are fun and cute, but I would spend my $ on souvenirs I could take home.

I'd rather they spent the time cleaning the rooms instead of making towel animals. Plus it's a waste of good towels. Especially when people think they are a gift from the housekeeper who used good Disney property to make them.
