BRITISH Travelers have revealed words that Disney World staff can’t understand when spoken with a British accent.
Some words even ask translators for help.
A British tourist posted on Facebook sharing a phrase the American staff at Disney World could never understand.
They wrote: “Yesterday at the snack bar at Disney Studios, we had a bit of a communication problem. The woman couldn’t understand ‘three bottles of water’.
“This is not a new thing as many visits over the years for some reason, asking for water with a British accent is one of the most confusing things ever.
However, things took it to a new level when the lady had to call her colleague to translate… what a shame.
“Never feels more British than when you’re begging for water in America.”
The post drew a flurry of responses from other Britons who had had similar experiences.
One person replied: “This happens to us too! In SeaWorld we have to ask for ‘war-der’ – only then is it possible.
Another wrote: “Every time we order two, we get three. Just the two of us and [we] showed two fingers. “
Another person encountered the same accent barrier, but this time with a tomato.
They wrote: “We had this with ‘please, we may not have tomatoes with that.’ We must say it in our best American accent.”
Another commented: “We went to Burger King and Americans couldn’t understand us asking for Whopper”.
Another wrote: “My mom used to have a very long chat trying to ask for some butter – staff couldn’t get it.
“When my mother tried speaking Queen’s English, the confusion only increased until finally the staff member said, ‘Oh, you mean bu’er’.”
Here are three words that Disney employees should never say – under any circumstances.
This is why you will never see a Disney theme park employee with just one finger.
A former Disney employee shared Secrets that guests never notice – from ban melt to underworld.
