Default Disney Culture on Disney Ships

I was recently informed about the policy that Disney employes never pointed out a direction for a cruiser with less than three fingers. I had heard also that Disney characters were not supposed to hug a cruiser. Is this true?

A strange myth I heard about Disney culture was that the characters are not supposed to come in contact with customers? I find this hard to believe.

Well, shoreside in the parks, we do a 2 finger point. And I get huggd by Minnie Mouse all the time. As for onboard? I have a friend that teaches the Traditions class for DCL occasionally, next time I see him online I will ask him and follow up for you guys. The character hugging thing sounds kind of urban legendish born out of a couple of frivolous cases brought against the company, but I dunno.

Past cruises:

Disney Dream - Dec 2013 4n Bahamas
Disney Dream - Dec 2012 4n Bahamas
Carnival Imagination - Dec 2011 4n Western
Carnival Imagination - Nov 2010 4n Western
Costa Atlantica - Dec 2009 7n Eastern

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.

I saw plenty of characters hugging kids on my recent DISNEY DREAM cruise. It was really cute.

We were hugged, kissed, touched (in a nice way!) by all the chacters. They laughted and danced. I was soo impressed at the level of intereaction between the the characters and my kids. My daugher had a blast holding Jessies hands and spinning in a circle with her - dancing cowgirl style..
