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.
