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.
