Disney ABCs: What do All Those Abbreviations Mean??

11232126_10153147612736234_8813154857012755124_nAnyone who has spent any time at all reading Disney Facebook pages, blogs or message boards will surely appreciate the question I receive on a regular basis: “What do all the abbreviations mean?”

I remember how incredibly confusing it can be when you start researching Disney vacation planning online, and everyone starts talking Disney shorthand…… Sometimes you feel like you need a pocket translator nearby to decipher what everyone is talking about!

Well, today I’m providing you with a Disney translator. :)

If you have ever wondered what on earth someone is talking about when they said:

I am hoping to make my ADRs at CRT on an EMH day at MK but if it doesn’t work out, then we’ll just go to DHS and see if we can use our DDP credits at H&V, right after we get our FPs for ToT and RnR

….then keep on reading!

Here they all are, in alphabetical order, for your reference and information. And don’t worry: there won’t be a quiz at the end….. :)
