In the Navy, whenever the Captain of a vessel comes or goes, the quarterdeck watch chimes the bells and announces over the loudspeakers "(Name of vessel) arriving (or departing)". So for example when the Captain of the USS Nimitz was boarding the ship we'd hear "Ding ding. Ding ding. Nimitz arriving".

That would be fun if Disney named a ship Goofy and they started using Navy protocols. "Goofy arriving".
