Acronyms, Codes, and Other Terms

Post by mechurchlady » Wed Jun 13, 2007 6:42 am

This list was originally created by MeChurchLady. Ye Moderators have taken over maintenance, but we still need all of you to send in new acronyms and abbreviations as you hear them in the Parks, Resorts, or in SGT forums.

The "D" and "W" before the entries marks a term as in-use at either Disneyland or Walt Disney World -- guess which is which! Because the moderator doing most of the editing works at WDW, I hope that Disneylanders will help me out with this part.

Because the original post was so large, it has been broken up into separate posts for each letter of the alphabet, plus one for numeric codes. Please don't blame the listed posters for what follows. I'll try to clean it all up later.

Please post updates, corrections, and confirmation of which codes are actually in use at each resort to this thread, and I'll put in the updates as time permits.


Churchy also says:

This list is to be used at this site only. I worked on this list so that it could be published here. Please do not publish it elsewhere.

I have tried to make sure the list is accurate but at times things can get muddled. 10-100 is a classic example of how one term can mean many things. This list is meant to help people understand what is being said at SGT.
