A Theme Park Tradition

THE DISNEY POINT
by Whatsits Galore

disney

Have you ever noticed, while vacationing in the Disney theme parks, the way the cast members point? Disney cast members are called upon to point out a lot of things for guests, and they are required to use a very specific method of pointing, employing two fingers instead of one. Not only is it easier for the visually-impaired to see, but pointing with a single finger is considered rude in some cultures. As visitors to Disney's theme parks come from everywhere in the world, pointing with two fingers instead of one eliminates some risk of offense.

Even Disney characters, while not cast memebers, are getting into the act, as you can see by the pictures below.
