    Question Disneyland Abbreviations

    Okay. These message boards are LOADED with abbreviations for Disneyland attractions. Now, I know some of them, like POTC is Pirates of the Carribean, and DCA is Disney's California Adventure, they are no brainers, but some of them are really hard to figure out. Would somebody please make a list of all of the abbreviations and what they mean? If its already been done, I apologize, but I am LOST! :confused:

    TDA = Team Disney Anahiem
    POTC = Pirates of the Carribean
    IASM = It's a Small World
    HISTA = Honey I Shrunk the Audience
    SM = Splash Mountain
    DLR = Disneyland Resort
    SoC = Soaring Over California
    ToT = Tower of Terror
    Those are the most common ones I see.

    Actually, I've found it kind of fun to try to figure these out!

    SM isn't very good it can be confused for Space Mountain or Splash Mountain. Space and Splash are the typical shorthand for those... or at least the correct shorthand, IMO.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    TDR = Tokyo Disney Resort
    TDS = Tokyo DisneySea

    For rides...

    RotA = Rivers of the Americas
    CBJ = (was) Country Bear Jamboree :-(
    PM = (was) Peoplemover
    CoP = Carousel of Progress
    TT = Tarzan's Treehouse

    Maynard is a very enthusiastic Attractions CM- he is usually to be found as an HM host.

    yeah, I think so- have never met him personally- only heard about him. Any Maynard stories out there? Or has that been in another thread already- if so, please provide the link.

    Terms I often use when I'm with friends at the park:

    SE
    DB
    WT


    SE == stroller envy. When you see someone that takes your breath away pushing a stroller.

    DB == distant beauty. Someone that looks great far away, but quickly goes from Dream to Dud as they get closer to you. *hums Mystery Date theme*

    WT == white trash. Self-explanatory.


    People watching is one of the best things to do at the park :-)
