The Beginner's Guide To Speaking Disney

The Beginner's Guide To Speaking Disney

Let’s go to WDW and get to MK for EMH. We’ll ride thunder and space and then get a spot for FOF. While we’re at it, may as well sit in the Castle Hub or find a spot next to the Partners Statue to be front and center for HEA. Too bad DEP isn’t here anymore. I guess we’ll have to come back for MNSSHP so we can see a nighttime parade.

Does this sentence make any sense to you? Are you a Disney newbie? Do you hear people talking in the park or in daily life using random acronyms and have no idea what they're talking about? It was brought to my attention that a lot of people don’t know what I’m talking about sometimes when I speak Disney so I wanted to give a quick guide to Disney acronyms.

*NOTE* These are just a few of them...I refer to these ones on a weekly basis. There are so many more out there, I'll update this list as I come across more!
