  • [Question] Mice Chat Acronyms????

    Sorry... I am new to this site and all of the acronyms are killing me. Is there a list of them somewhere for easy reference????
    I wish I had a cool signature to insert here, but I don't.

        I wish people would spell out the phrase the first time in their post unless it's extremely common (like DLR is Disneyland Resort, WDW, DCA...) and then abbreviate it later on. If it's been explained in the thread before, it's fine to go ahead and abbreviate, but there has got to be a limit. I've been here for a few months and still struggle with some of the acronyms people use here. Don't feel bad, tensixmom!

          DD DH DS killed me for a long time! Would have never guessed this was daughter husband and son with Disney attachednto the front! So I agree other then attractions and resorts most of the abrevations seem unnessesary to me.
          BGood! It's not just my motto its my name!

            I always wonder about that one too. I actually browse a couple of non-Disney forums ( ) and a couple of those use DH and DS too.

                It is Disney here to state that said family member is a fan of Disney as well

                  DH, DS, DD, etc. are standard internet usage for dear husband, darling husband, or d*mn husband depending on your context. It's used all over the place and has nothing to do with Disney. Nobody uses "H" for a husband who ISN'T a Disney fan. It does not carry a Disney connotation.

                  I know the acronyms can be overwhelming. For someone who's been poking around on the internet since the early 90s, it's hard to remember that people may not get everything. Don't feel foolish about asking .

                    I totally agree with ths post. Really, it's not that hard to type the full thing out at least once.

                      Some of the attractions I will use the acronyms, but I try to spell them all out more often than not so people won't get confused.

                        Other than the most common web acronyms, I think it is best to first spell out the term and then use acronyms in the rest of the text. I've found this to be standard operation in the business world and it makes for a clearer document and prevents confusion and possible misunderstanding.

                            yeah I didn't get the DH, DD, DS son thing for awhile.
                            why call them dear I don't get it, they aren't that hard to type out
                            it sounds old fashioned or something.

                            i also didn't understand some of the long ride name acronyms, but it isn't hard to figure it out once you get the hang of it:

                            ex: TOT obviously = Tower of Terror

                                As others have said, some acronyms are fine (DL or DCA) but I don't care for overly long acronyms... the likes of JttCotE (Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Tokyo DisneySea)), naturally not something you want to type out every time, but surely its easier to just type 'Journey'?

                                Its funny how some attractions become acronyms in forums, ie. ToT whereas some don't - Indy.

                                And on a separate note that whole "DD/DH" thing really grinds my gears. Just had to get that off my chest! [/mini rant over]

                                But hey, each to their own and all that.
