WDW Abbreviations

Hollywood Studios

So I have come to the conclusion that the Facebook page is actual a really helpful forum. I have found information such as the WDW abbreviations below. Okay so, no I don’t post, or respond to anything because I am too nervous that I wont get in and yeah I don’t want to post anything until I do, but reading everything that everyone else is saying/ asking makes me feel like I’m not alone in this torturous journey of waiting through these waves. People are posting the same questions and the same emotional posts that I am feeling so its nice to be able to read through those and to feel like everyone is in the same boat.

Anyway, one of the posts that I found to be really helpful is one about abbreviations commonly used at Walt Disney World. I have compiled the ones that were posted on the page below for both your benefit and my benefit as this journey continues.

There’s a lot there, but even more that aren’t there, I’m sure. Once I get in, trying to stay positive people, I hope to start learning the ones that aren’t so obvious. In the meantime, I continue to worry that another wave will come tomorrow or this week whenever it will be and I wont be in it. So much is riding on me getting into the DCP, that I’m beginning to second guess whether it was a good decision to make so much dependent on an acceptance. I keep reminding myself that only a small percentage of acceptances have gone out so far and that mine could come any day. But its that “any day” that is killing me! Waiting, waiting, waiting is no fun, but on the other hand the waiting, when/if I get in while make getting in even sweeter! But id be more than happy if I didn’t have to wait past tomorrow. Shew, I think from this you can tell how scattered I am! I just want this so badly. Tonight was the celebration of Disneyland’s 60th anniversary and watching that program was magical! It made me want to get accepted even more if that’s even possible!
