BRITISH holidaymakers have revealed the words that Disney World staff cannot understand when said with an English accent.
Some of the words even required translators to help.
A British holidaymaker posted on Facebook sharing a phrase that American staff at Disney World could never understand.
They wrote: "Yesterday at the snack counter in Disney Studios, we have a bit of a breakdown in communication.The lady couldn't understand 'three bottles of water'.
"This isn't a new thing as over many visits through the years for some reasons asking for water in a British accent is one of the most confusing things ever.
However, it went to a new level as the lady had to call a colleague to interpret… so embarrassing.
"Never feel more British than when you are asking for water in America."
The post sparked a host of responses from other Brits who had had similar experiences.
One person replied: "This happened to us too! In SeaWorld we had to ask for 'war-der' – only then was it possible.

Another person commented: "We went to Burger King and the Americans couldn't understand us asking for a Whopper."
Someone else wrote: "My mum once had a very lengthy conversation trying to request some butter – the staff member just couldn't get it.
"When my mum attempted the Queen's English the confusion only increased further until eventually the staff member said, 'oh, you mean bu'er'."
