The cast of DISNEY goes above and beyond to give guests a magical experience while they’re at the theme park.
But if something goes wrong, they need a way to get out of the crowd without making a scene.
A former Disney employee has revealed that actors use a secret hand signal to alert their characters if one of them is in trouble.
Each character is accompanied by a valet to assist them as they go out and about in the park.
They are the people the character has to signal to if they feel unwell or need to leave the park for some reason.
Sarah Daniels shared a video on Tiktok answering a fan’s question.
The question was: “What if you dressed up as a fur character that got too hot and felt like you were going to faint? Can you signal for help?”
Sarah replied, “So as a character, if you get stuck and you need to go, you put one hand over one eye and then the other hand up to the sky.
“And that’s how they know you’re having a hard time.”
The video has been viewed 921,000 times, and staff from other theme parks have commented to explain what they do if they feel sick.
One person wrote: “Fantastic! At Disneyland Paris we’ll be making Xs with our arms. Thank goodness never had to do that.”
Another replied: “That’s what Legoland Florida does too! I’ve had to do it a few times.”
