    I'm pretty organized so we make the bed every morning and keep our toiletries all together. I unpack when we arrive and put the luggage in the closet so there isn't stuff laying around. I bring a bag for dirty laundry and keep that in the closet as well.
    Basically, mousekeeping comes in every fourth day and leaves clean towels and takes the trash. On the eighth day, you would get a complete cleaning.
    We're in the room so little that it never gets very messy.

    I've never heard of day-to-day tipping to be honest. We usually leave a bowl that we put our change in, and then at the end of the holiday put a note on it saying "tip" or similar. Since you can't take change home very easily, and it's not like you need it anyway. Generally, it equals quite a high amount after 2 weeks of spare change! We aren't going to use it again, so why not give it to someone who might?!

    yep, that's what we do as well

    To be honest, in general, mousekeeping at Disney is "OK" these days but far from the time when the room was spotless, even under the beds, every day. Linen seems to be changed on a schedule all of their own and we don't always get new cups/glasses. So I think leaving the change is about right for the level of service

    I usually tip $1 per person in the room. I do try to tidy up though as I don't really think Mousekeeping (or any hotel housekeeping) should have to pick up my dirty laundry! I don't even really like to pick up after my DH or DS!

    This thread has really surprised me. I thought you HAD to tip (as I was informed on another forum!

    We do not stay onsite but I tried to put a couple of $ in a mousekeeping envelope per day & left all our small change at end of holiday.

    Thanks for this info

    Nope, nope, nope! You absolutely do not HAVE to tip housekeeping in any resort or hotel.

    i did not tip this time because i stayed on DVC points..I gathered the trash and the towels and put them by the front door...mousekeeping put in new bags and left clean towels...

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    You don't HAVE to tip anywhere. It's customary to tip certain positions but it is not mandated by any means. TIPS means To Insure Prompt Service.
