    Are there any donation boxes at all in the resort?

    Donation boxes for what?

    I do know that all the coins from all the various water features are donated to charity. Like that? Or is there just a general "Disneyland General Upkeep Fund" that you are looking for?

      The money tossed into the Wishing Well at Snow White's Grotto is donated to children's charities.

          Not that I'm aware of, aside from purchasing a ticket to get in the park!

          It would be cool though- see that trashcan? I sponsored the painting of that trashcan!

            They call them cash registers.

                  I wonder if Disney would accept attraction sponsorship from some crazed fan with deep pockets?

                    You could consider a tip to be a donation. Are CM's allowed to accept tips (aside from food service)?

                      No, CMs are not supposed to accept tips. Not to say we do it anyways.

                                i have heard that policy says they have to refuse tips 3 times, but after that they can accept(they are supposed to run them in but, yeah right!) so if you really want to give a cast member a tip, offer, they refuse, offer again, they refuse again, offer again, they refuse again, then the next offer should be accepted or something like that.

                                  They have to refuse 3 times, then they will accept and turn it over to their lead. The lead turns it in and the funds are donated to a children's fund. CMs can be termed for not following procedures. They actually have shoppers whose job it is to test for this.

                                      I knew about the first bit, never heard that it was supposed to go to the lead. I'm not sure I've actually read this procedure anywhere (everything I know about it comes from other CMs, and has a whiff of "if the teacher doesn't show up for 15 minutes, we can leave" to it), so I think it would be pretty contentious if they tried to term someone for it.

                                        Well, if you are moved to giving a tip, it would be a shame if the CM gets in trouble for it. It would also be better to donate directly to a charity, if that's where your money is going to go anyway, because then it's tax deductible.
