Another one. FW - Fireworks


I fixed Epcot and added FW-Fireworks, WitW-Weasus in the World; EoS and A&E- Anna and Elsa


Heather, ST - Disney's Hollywood Studios needs to be removed. Cont should be shortened to CR for the Contemporary. Could also add WtWBM - Where the Wind Blows Me. BLT - Has an extra B in Bay.


Done. Also added TP- Touring Plans, UG- Unofficial Guide, CC- Crowd Calendar & one more. Kuddos if you find it smile


WatW = Weasus at the World


And CL = Club Level ahhhhhhhhhh..... smile @weasus...GD...Green Door wink


Added them, @MeetMeAtThePoly. Sorry it took so long. I was on vaca since last Sat and there was no way I was going to try to edit that monster post from my phone sunny


Love this all in one place. I'm a lurker and trying to get used to the forum. Learned a lot from reading lines over the past 7 months or so. You guys know so much about the world. I wish I had discovered chat back before our trip in June of 2012. Hope to go back with the grandkids again in the next 1 to 2:years.
Thanks for posting all these acronyms! Very helpful! monorail


Liners are amazing. You have so much information and knowledge that you share so willingly. Thanks so much! monorail


@MDU. I found a few missing ones.
RD= rope drop
DH, DW, DS, etc
WAT= Wild Africa Trek
KTTK= Keys to the Kingdom tour
WPE= Wolfgang Puck Express


And we can't forget the infamous SFL.


Thanks for the additions! This list is definately a work in progress. I didn't add any of the family acronyms because there are so many. If you want to list and explain them, I can put a note at the bottom of the list, but I think it would really clog it up with everything from EDH's to DMLs and 'ain't nobody got time for them' wink


There's no need for SFL here. Lol Threads can be bookmarked.
