Disney Acronyms

When planning a trip to Walt Disney World many people start reading guide books, blogs and Disney web sites.  I consider myself a Disney Veteran and still do those three things when planning.  Heck, I don't even have to be planning a trip to read books, blogs and web sites! :)  Anyway, while you are reading information on a vacation to Walt Disney World you will eventually run across several many acronyms.  Here is a short list of some of the acronyms I use or have used in my blog at some point.  I hope this helps with some of the confusion!.  Disney uses acronyms almost as much as the Army!

WDW – Walt Disney World
DL- Disneyland
DLR- Disneyland Resort
MK – Magic Kingdom
AK-  Animal Kingdom
EC- Epcot
WS- World Showcase at Epcot
FW- Future World at Epcot
DHS – Disney Hollywood Studios
DtD-  Downtown Disney
ME – Magical Express
TTC – Ticket and Transportation Center
FP- Fastpass
ADR- Advanced Dining Reservation

MNSSHP – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
MVMCP – Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

CM – Cast Member
MYW - Magic Your Way (ticket)
AP - Annual Pass
HDDR – Hoop Dee Doo Review dinner show
CS- Counter Service restaurant
TS- Table Service restaurant
HM- Hidden Mickey
DVC- Disney Vacation Club
EMH- Extra Magic Hours
ToT- Tower of Terror
PotC- Pirates of the Caribbean
TSMM- Toy Story Midway Mania
BTMRR – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Other rides and most of the resorts have acronyms too.  If I'm ever reading a blog or article about Disney and run across an acronym that I'm not familiar with I try to run down a mental list of attractions and resorts.  I can usually figure out what they are referring too, but sometimes I am stumped!  Here is a complete list from Deb at All Ears if you need help.
