Glossary of Terms

Here's the thing - the more you begin to hang out with Disney aficionados, the more you realize that they have a language of their own. Here is my attempt at being a translator. The terms will be alphabetized and I will come back to this post often to update when I come across new terms.

You are also welcome to ask for definitions or to add your own in the comments.

ADR - Advanced Dinner Reservations (this is what you need if you plan on eating in one of the many table service restaurants on property)

DAK - Animal Kingdom (the full name is "Disney's Animal Kingdom")

Dark Rides - A "genre" of ride that involves getting in your vehicle and riding through various scenes, usually reliving the movie from which the ride is based.

DHS - Hollywood Studios (the full name is "Disney's Hollywood Studios", also known as "the Studios, formally known as "MGM Studios")

Epcot - formally known as the E.P.C.O.T. Center (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow)

The Fab Five - This refers to Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy. The fifth member of the Fab Five often switches between Daisy and Pluto.

Gate Buster - an attraction that draws the big crowds. Expedition Everest and Toy Story Mania are examples of gate busters

MK - Magic Kingdom

MNSSHP - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (An annual event running from September through the beginning of November)

MVMCP - Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (A annual event beginning shortly after MNSSHP ends, through the beginning of the following year)

TTA - Tomorrowland Transit Autority - A slow moving ride in Tomorrowland. Not thrilling, but a great place to rest and get out of the heat (or rain) and gives you a great view of Tomorrowland
