    I know a lot of you tip mousekeeping, so I figure I'll need to go ahead & make envelopes for them. I thought I may make envelopes for other tips, but I can't think of who all I'll be tipping. (I'm not making them for food services, just mousekeeping & whatever else.) I will be flying & using ME, if that makes any difference. Thank you!

    Besides mousekeeping & restaurants, the only thing I can think of is the bellmen if they help you with your luggage ($1 per bag is standard)

    If you are on the DDP do you tip in the restaurants?

    Usually tip:

    Mousekeeping - $2-$3 per day depending on quality
    Bellman - $1 per bag (same as curb-side at the airport)
    Concierge - $5-$10 depending on service provided

    We tip: servers/waiters.
    Bellmen.
    But not the mousekeepers. They are an hourly employee and do not expect a tip. :)

    If you're on the dining plan, the tip is included in the price you pay for the plan.

    I tip mousekeeping.

    I've tipped Servers and Bellmen - but I've never tipped Mousekeeping - I just assumed like the above stated - that since they are hourly they didn't expect it. Do you get better service, etc. if you tip Mousekeeping?

    We do tip mousekeeping, I even make special envelopes. We will be staying at the FtW cabins & with a kitchen etc to clean I will tip $5/day for 3 of us. We also tip skycaps at the airport, luggage handling at the resort, limo driver if we use that to get to airport, valet parking & waitstaff at restaurants.
