What's the secret for getting great MouseKeeping?
My gf and I will be staying at Pop Century for 7 nights in March, and will possibly have some friends coming to stay with us for a few of those nights over the course of that week. One of those friends has never stayed at a Disney resort before, and has never experienced MouseKeeping. Between it being his first time, and because it's just a neat thing to experience, I just really really hope to get some real good MouseKeeping in our room.
Now I remember from previous trips a series of towel animals and shapes, swimming pools for our stuffed animals, and greeting cards from characters (I think the card thing was for a birthday though). And i thought I remember hearing that as long as you leave a couple of bucks each day for your housekeeping staff, that this is the kind of things you could come to expect in return. However I've also read from a few people who went and did tip their housekeeping staff, and still didn't recieve any towel animals or that kind of thing.
So, what's the trick? Is there anyway to be certain I will get a good MouseKeeper who will keep me smiling after I return home from a long day at the parks? Is there a certain amount I should tip? How much is enough... or too much? Or is it just luck that decides whether or not you should happen to get a MouseKeeper who knows how to make animals and have a little fun, and will do so regardless of what you tip? Thanks in advance, guys.
