    I guess I thought 15-20% is standard for tipping "service" positions and you adjust more or less for service received.

    We did the WISHES fireworks cruise at the Magic Kingdom and our driver spent a lot of extra time telling us stories about the parks, making sure we had a great viewing spot and even took us for a little "extra" drive around afterwards. I think I remember us giving like 30% because we just really appreciated her extra effort.

    We shared our cruise w/two other families and we each put in $10 for the tip which actually worked out to 25%. I would think anything from 15% up would be fine.

    We went on an Illuminations Cruise which was $120. We ended up giving our captain $150 and told him to keep the change. It was our first night in Disney and it was a great way to start it off -WE LOVE YOU STU!!

    We gave a $50 tip when were there in April 2004. Loved every minute of the cruise! :D
