Disney is a brand behemoth which prides itself on making dreams come true - and making a pretty penny by doing so.

It's no surprise, then, that Disney employees have stringent guidelines about keeping the magic alive.

These guidelines include the sort of rules most of us should be abiding by, i.e. no drinking on the job, no theft or anything that could result in a gross misconduct dismissal.

But there are also a couple of more specific and unusual rules to follow too.

One involves their index finger, or forefinger.

Owing to the mix of nationalities and cultures visiting Disney's different resorts, workers have to be aware of anything that could be considered offensive or upsetting to any one of their visitors.

So, while in Western countries it's OK to point with one finger, in other countries it's seen as rude.

For this reason, workers at Disney resorts and parks always point with two fingers, the indy100 reports.

They're also forbidden from being negative to any guests - no matter how rude or trying that person might have been.

But everyone needs an outlet, so Disney and employees have come up with a workaround, and have codes they use towards customers they can't stand.

So if you get told "have a Disney day!", assume you've done something wrong.
