Disney Lingo: That Grey Stuff It's Delicious!

You are planning your first trip ever to a Disney theme park and you are trying to find out all the information you can. Except on that forum board someone is talking about MK and FP+ and then that person is staying a Pop? What does all this mean? It means it's time to learn some Disney abbreviations! It's a quick and fun way to express what you want to about Disney!

Yes there are a lot but once you get used to them you realize that it's helpful in a lot of ways. So many times in a text or an instant message it's easier than writing out the whole thing. Plus sometimes it can be fun to confuse your friends and coworkers, or even your family. Trust me I love the look on a coworkers face when they see a letter with the abbreviations and they are trying to figure out what it means and they have no clue.

But here are the ones I could think of off the top of my head that I have used. If you have some that I don't have just comment below!
