  • 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:

      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.

              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
                TR, ETR = Enchanted Tikiroom
                DLRR = Disneyland Railroad (I think this is an "official" acronym)

                And a bunch more for WDW (Walt Disney World) attractions...

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

                        Oh, is he the older CM who really gets into it in the stretching room? He's cool.

                          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 :-)

                                  Because of land locking Maynard lost his Haunted Mansion knowledge! (if you don't work there for a year, they say you cna't wprk it again until you get retrained!)
                                  Personally, me being a cast member, I think that Maynard is a little overated. Maynard is a GREAT guy but ... there are TONS of GREAT cast members at Disneyland who deserve just as much praise as he does. But that is just my thoughts ...


                                  A few other abbreviations:
                                  AP = Annual Passholder
                                  CM = Cast Member
                                  DL = Diseyland
                                  DLR = Disneyland Resort
                                  DCA = Disney's California Adventure
                                  TZToT = Tower of Terror


                                  There are more ... but I am drawing a blank!!

                                    IMO (In my opinion) We should be using the slang the CM (cast members) use in the parks. When I worked at WDW (Walt Disney World), each attraction had a short name, here are some that I remember/know (although some of them don't exist any more you can probably guess what they were/are)

                                    Tower
                                    Coaster
                                    Splash
                                    Walking Tour
                                    Shuttles
                                    Honey (or Honey Hell)
                                    Muppets
                                    Movie Ride
                                    Mermaid
                                    Turtles
                                    20K

                                      he no longer works at mansion, land locking went into effect and he lost it. you will mainly find him at disney story, jungle or tiki.
                                      i have no idea

                                        I agree that there are tons of excellent CMs at DLand. But there is just something a little special about Maynard. I loved Maynard before Maynard started receiving all this attention. I think it's okay to acknowledge someone when there is something particularly special or touching about someone. I still have a picture that Maynard drew for me almost 8 years ago (or so).
