If you have ever read something along the lines of this...

"AK has EMH on Monday so will try and get there early to do FoP as I couldn’t get a FP+ and I have an ADR at TH for a CB”

and just stared at the screen in confusion, then this is the blog post for you!

Whether this is your very first trip to the House of the Mouse, or you are a seasoned visitor, Disney acronyms and abbreviations can still pop up somewhere and make you say ‘What on Earth does that stand for?’

Say whaaaaat?
Say whaaaaat?

There are many, MANY abbreviations out there, Disney lingo can seem like a foreign language to most until you get your head wrapped around it. Here at Ticket Rangers we thought that we would list a few of the more commonly used ones to give you a heads up of these shortened little blighters that pop up everywhere from blogs to forums and social media planning groups.

So here we go… get ready to start impressing your friends by speaking fluent Disney!!
