THIS former Disney World employee revealed code words they use for rule-breaking, and the secret meaning of “balloon” might surprise you.
The alleged employee took to a Reddit thread to share how the word “balloon” could refer to a medical situation.
The user wrote in the post, “It’s been about 15-16 years now, but when you’re talking about headsets, you should use different codes for things.”
“For example, a medical situation was usually a ‘balloon’ for blood, I think it was (‘There’s a balloon in the parking lot.’)”
They continued, “You can imagine my surprise when we get a call saying, ‘We’ve got a code, phew, Piglet’s at large.'”
The clerk said this code was actually a reference to a child using the sandpit “as their public toilet.”
Another user said he experienced similar code at his workplace.
“When I was in high school, I volunteered at a zoo. We also had weird codes as the media likes to eavesdrop and we didn’t want a scandal if a tiger just gets into the wrong hold or something,” the Redditor said.
This comes as a travel expert shared simple tips on how to save some cash on your next visit to Disney World.
MONEY SAVING TIPS
Speaking to Insider, travel planner Kari Becker shared her favorite tips for saving money without sacrificing magic.
She’s been to Disney World over 40 times, and between that “field research” and her experiences at Marvelous Mouse Travels, Becker has a lot of knowledge to share.
As a first tip, Becker recommended having groceries delivered to your room.
“We typically have milk, yogurt, bottled water, cheese sticks, and soda,” Becker told the outlet.
“There are delivery services that bring groceries right to the bellhop at the resort,” she continued.
Although there’s a fee if you want groceries delivered right up to your room, you don’t have to pay any additional fees if you go to the lobby yourself.
Becker said her family orders breakfast items to the room “which saves us quite a bit of money and time.”
She also said you can save money by ordering a kid’s meal at any of Disney World’s restaurants.
“The kids’ portions are often not that much smaller and come with extra snacks that you can save and eat later,” Becker said.
You can also refill drinks in the park.
If you’re staying at a Disney resort, you can pay a fee upfront to save on drinks in the long run.
“If you know you’re going to be drinking coffee or soda and munching popcorn during your vacation, the refillable cups and buckets are worth it,” Becker said.
Right now, the cups are $19.99, and while they can’t be used in the parks, you can refill them for free during your stay at the resorts.
“Drinks at the resorts are about $4 each. So if you have more than five drinks, you got your money back,” Becker explained.
Finally, some special offers allow you to purchase discounted Disney gift cards and use them on just about anything in the park.
The trick is to look for special offers like Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, or shop at stores that give you a bulk gift card discount.
“On our most recent trip, we saved over $300 just by purchasing discounted Disney gift cards,” said Becker.
