Apologize in advance.  I believe this has previously been asked but I couldn't find the doc.  What is considered the "proper" tipping protocol at the Poly..  I'm staying concierge.  I'm thinking along the lines of daily house keeping, and whoever schleps my bags (probably 2-3 suitcases) in when I arrive.  Is there a "standard" tip X amount per suitcase.  As you can tell by my echo name it's my first tip to Disney so I'm trying to avoind any tipping faux-pas !  I also do not travel much in general so I also want to make sure I tip the proper amount at the airport (porter), and limo driver who is taking us to and from the airport.

Thanks!
Greg

According to my PassPorter - $1-2 per bag at arrival and departure, mousekeeping $1 per person per day.

Our last trip we drove (and we are again this year) so we schlepped our own bags at CBR, but we did leave a daily tip for mousekeeping.

I don't know about tipping the limo driver, I would think 10-15% of the bill would be fair.

Have a great trip!  Family I should be in Jacksonville this time 2 weeks from now, and only 2 1/2 hrs from the *Mouse!!!

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the tip info!  

Hey we'll be at Disney 2 weeks from yesterday.   My little girls ask me everyday "Is it time to go to Disney yet"  :) !
