    Tips are roughly $12 per day per guest (will cover all the tipped positions) so $420 for your whole family for the 7 day cruise. $12 pp x 5 guests = $60.00. $60.00 x 7 days = $420. You will receive envelopes in your stateroom with the tipped positions printed on them.

    Remy $75 pp

    Palo $20 pp

    Transportation - DCL $35 pp each way, a rental car could be anywhere from approx. $30 up depending on what car you rented for the day, limo services you would have to research.

    Porter tips would be about $2 per bag and room service tips are at your discretion.....usually a few bucks for each delivery.

    Disney recommends $12/nite per person so the total would be 7*5*12 .. a total of $420 for all of you.
    Palo was $20/person (and an additional tip if you want)
    Disney is 70 per person round trip.
    We used Orlando Chauffeured Service (OCS) and they were significantly cheaper for the 5 of us (even with the drivers tip).

    Most towncar/limo services will be cheaper for 5 people than DCL transfers. There are many good companies out there. For a minivan rental, I have paid from $34 to $93 including all taxes and fees; you need to add for tolls and gas. I can't see placing 5 people + luggage in something much smaller than that!:goodvibes

    Another thought if you are flying in the night before--the Wyngate hotel has a cruise package that includes shuttle from MCO to hotel when you arrive, hotel stay, breakfast, and ROUND TRIP transportation to the cruise terminal (on the way home, your choice whether they take you to MCO or the hotel!). I priced it out on a couple of dates. For 2, it was $210 (IMHO, not a wonderful deal,) but for 5 it was $270. That's a seriously good deal, considering that DCL transfers alone would be $350!

    Thank you for that info, kcasner! I'm going to check them out right now.
    How did you find that deal? Is it a special promo?
