633AP’s, KRR, HDD…can you decipher the code? Whether you are new to Disney vacation planning, or you have been at the game for a while, it can be a challenge trying to figure out what in tarnation people are talking about.  You scour the internet, join Facebook groups, join chat lines, all in the hopes of getting some key information you can use on your vacation planning.  Then you keep stumbling on those Disney acronym roadblocks.

Wonder no more my friend.  I’m about to give you a list of Disney-related abbreviations, along with the meanings of said abbreviations, so you too can be in the top-secret, unofficial Disney Acronym Club, maybe even earn your Disney Wilderness Explorers Acronym Patch.  Okay, that’s not really a thing, but you will feel like you belong to a special club once you have this list!  Please keep in mind, this list is only a list of the most common acronyms.  I’m sure there are probably a ton more out there that I’m not only not aware of, I probably never imagined they would even be a thing.  This list will include Disney Parks, attractions, resorts and other Disney related abbreviations.  You won’t find DH, DS, (Dear Husband, Dear Son-or for Disney fans like us Disney Husband, Disney Son)etc…here.  So…let’s get this secret code going so you can get that imaginary patch!
