Whether you think working as a character performer at a Disney Park would be a dream job or a nightmare role, there is no denying the fact that the position is unique.

After all, not everyone gets to wake up every day and play a Disney Princess, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, or another iconic Disney character.

There are numerous rules and regulations that all character performer Cast Members have to abide by at all six Disney theme park properties — Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Paris, Shanghai Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Recently, the Proud Disnerds Instagram account shared what is, perhaps, one of the most unique paragraphs in the Disney Parks Cast Member handbook. The stipulation reportedly applies only to actors who portray Aladdin at Disney properties.

Per the post, the handbook’s “Park Safety” section purportedly reads:

Although we want every Disney guest to have fun, our number one priority is safety. Because of this, Aladdin will never under any circumstances kill a park guest, unless it is absolutely necessary to save the lives of a greater number of park guests. This is referred to as “Aladdin’s Exemption.

The graphic included a comment from internet user kimchimichi, who hilariously wrote:

“sir, we have a person taken hostage in frontier land [sic: Frontierland].”

Commenters on the post also chimed in, with helzbelle13 asking a valid question:

I’m confused.. does this mean that Aladdin is the only one allowed to kill guests, as long as it’s for the safety of other guests, or does it mean that everyone other than Aladdin is allowed to kill any guest without reason..?

My question is, is Aladdin trained to kill before he gets there or is Aladdin trained to kill as part of the Disney trianing program. How many other characters are programed to kill?

Fun and games aside, Disney has not confirmed at any point that this is actually in the Cast Member character actor handbook, but it does seem like “Aladdin’s Exemption” would be difficult to make up!
