Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, so it’s hard to believe that there would be anything untoward going on behind the scenes.
But according to a former employee of a Walt Disney theme park, there are things that go on that visitors would be completely unaware of.
The former employee shared on forum website Reddit that if a Disneyland employee ever says the words “Have a magical Disney day!” then you have done something very wrong.
While Disney employees aren’t allowed to be negative in front of guests, they can develop their own code words, which is exactly what this is.
The phrase is actually a delightfully polite “f*** you!”
"I worked for Disney's Ad Agency for three years and we had some cast members tell us this is what it meant," the former employee said.
“That's not the only phrase you don't want to hear spoken about you at the parks though — if an employee ever refers to you as a customer, you're probably in for a shake-down."
Two other former employees confirmed that the story was true and other former cast members have come forward to share their own Disney secrets.
Disneyland cast members aren’t allowed to be rude in any way or form, and for that reason they are also not allowed to point. Instead they have to use two fingers or an open palm to point.
"Didn't your mum ever teach you it's rude to point? Walt Disney feels the same, because all cast members have to point with two fingers so it's not interpreted as being rude," one former employee said.
"Other things Disney wants cast members to do? Scoop up trash without stopping to bend down — bend as you walk by and scoop it up."
