Disney World, Planning

How to Speak Disney

If you are a Disney newbie, you might be overwhelmed and confused with all the abbreviations and acronyms flying around out there.  Heck, even I’ve been caught off guard about what an abbreviation could mean and I have to actually ask someone.

115As you are becoming well aware, there’s a pretty big community of Disney fans that love to share their planning process, offer advice, or just love to chat about Disney in general.  Some of the more common terms have been turned into quick abbreviations to help save time when typing.  First timers can often feel lost when visiting a new group, forum, or webpage.

Well, I would like to attempt to make your life a little simpler by offering you a dictionary to help you sort through all those random letters and try to make sense out of them.  If you know of one that I have left off the list, please feel free to comment below, and I’ll get it added to the list!

Ready?  Here we go!
