ORLANDO — What’s the worst name that you’ve been called? At Disney theme parks, there’s nothing worse than being called “treasured guest”.
According to the New York Post, Disney uses this term to refer to particularly rude or disruptive guests. Since theme park rules prohibit employees to use insulting language in front of customers, this secret code name is a far more diplomatic way to address any issues that may arise.
But it isn’t the only code name at Disney. Vomit – which occurs often as a result of topsy-turvy rides, sugary drinks and fast food – is referred to as a “protein spill”. When a protein spill is reported on the grounds, staff will respond to a “Code V” to quickly have the spill cleaned up.
Onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, a “Code Winnie” doesn’t involve honey at all. It does, however, have everything to do with pee in the pool.
There’s even a secret term for anyone illegally scattering a loved one’s ashes, which happens more often than you think at such a sentimental place like Disney. If someone is caught spreading ashes either on a ride or somewhere else on the grounds, a “white powder alert” is announced, after which a staff member is sent to clean up the ashes and stop the ride.
