Disney parks are doing away with gendered terms such as “boys and girls” in their park greetings in an effort to promote gender inclusivity.
“We've provided training for all of our cast members in relationship to that. So now they know it’s ‘Hello, everyone,’ or ‘Hello, friends,’” Disney’s diversity and inclusion manager Vivian Ware said in a video conference call, per Fox News.
Indeed, Disney attendees will no longer hear “ladies and gentleman” or “boys and girls” in park greetings.
“We want to create a magical moment with our cast members, with our guests,” Ware said. “And we don’t want to just assume because someone might be in, our interpretation, may be presenting as female that they may not want to be ‘princess.’”
