    I would like to know who you tip from the beginning of your stay, throughout the resort, until the end.

    Please start your list of people from the time you get off the plane, until you get back on the plane.

    I am clueless, so please be thorough, and list how you arrive at the tip you give to each person.

    I will look forward to your reply.

    I don't fly to WDW, so I can't help with those. Here's my list:

    valet: $2 per getting of car

    bellman: usually about $1-2 per bag

    mousekeeping: $5 per day

    waiters/waitresses: 20% (and a little more if it's GREAT service)

    I think that's it. :)

    jel0511, great list.

    I would add these:
    Driver of a Limo or town car-$20 when he dropped us off at the resort, he helped with bags at the airport and the grocery store. Then $10 when he dropped us off at the airport.

    Restaurant wait staff-15%-35% Yeah 35% is high. But the service was THAT good.

    I did notice that there are ussually 2 different belman that handle your luggage. I used to feel bad when I had a lot of luggage or heavy pcs. Then when I realized I was paying them the $10 for about 3 minutes of work I got over it.

    Great list:
    add--If you get a drink at a bar you should tip the bartender. (15-20%--usually $1-$2 per drink)


    Disney doesn't list houskeeping as a tipped position although many tip.
