Secret Decoder Ring

Everyone remembers the scene in the movie “Christmas Story”, where Ralphie, listening to the radio show, decodes the secret message using the decoder ring he just received in the mail;  “Drink Ovaltine” was the secret message.  Today, we’re not going to decode a secret message, but I thought I would provide a list of acronyms frequently used on Disney blogs and bulletin boards to help you understand the lingo.  Here are some of them:

DME-Disney’s Magical Express

ADR-Advanced Dining Reservation

BWV-Boardwalk Villas

SS-Saratoga Springs

WDW-Walt Disney World

DVC-Disney Vacation Club

VWL-Villas at Wilderness Lodge

BLT-(not the sandwich)  Bay Lake Tower

MNSSHP-Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

MVMCP-Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

MK-Magic Kingdom

TOTW-Top of The World Lounge at Bay Lake Towers

I know there’s more of these, so please feel free to respond and add your own.  Now that you know the lingo you can post with confidence on the boards and blogs.
