Image from the PassPorter Photo Archive
In the final part of this series of articles looking at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, we’ve just passed what I thought was the end to the museum, a room that takes an in-depth look at many of Walt’s animated classics from the 1950s and early 1960s. However, there was still much more to enjoy.

       TIP

"This is a very small and easy tip for those who wish to be remembered by Cast Members. Our family brings $2 bills to give to those Cast Members who receive cash tips [bartenders, room-service staff, etc.]. The benefit to doing this is, it is such a unique item it always stirs up a conversation and gives you a great way to get to know Cast Members better. Having a great relationship with Cast Members is always key to having a fulfilling vacation. I just ask for a few every time I visit the bank and this helps me build up enough for our trip throughout the whole year. "
