Some people request that their ashes be spread at places that have sentimental value for them. However, that can be a problem when the request is to spread those ashes in an inappropriate place, such as Disneyland.
The Disney theme parks receive thousands of visitors every year. It is not uncommon for those visitors to do the same things over and over again.
To avoid alarming any guests, Disney staff use code words to describe common occurrences.
For example, if someone vomits on a ride, Disney staff refer to it as a "protein spill." A particularly rude or difficult visitor is referred to as a "treasured guest."
It is not surprising that Disney would have developed special code words to refer to what are probably very common occurrences.
However, sometimes Disney has code words for are a bit more surprising, as The Sun reports in "Be Our Guest The secret code Disney theme park staff use to describe the rudest visitors -- so have YOU been called it?"
A "white powder event" might sound like staff has discovered certain illegal drugs or potentially dangerous chemical or biological substances.
It is used to refer to someone attempting to spread the ashes of the deceased at the parks.
This is something of a trend in funeral requests to have ashes spread at places the deceased loved. It happens at sports stadiums, concert halls and theme parks.
Unfortunately, it is inappropriate and normally against the law.
