Disney Abbreviations

One of the more challenging things about planning a Disney World vacation is trying to figure out all the abbreviations people use when giving tips and hacks. These are especially common on Disney Facebook groups. Here is an example of something you might see:

“Be sure to RD SDMT because you can’t get a LL but you can buy an ILL, however, it might interfere with your CD at CRT.” Translation: Be sure to rope drop Seven Dwarfs Mine Train because you can’t get a lightning lane but you can buy an individual lightning lane and it might interfere with your character dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table.”

We have rounded up the most common abbreviations you will see in regards to Walt Disney World – or should we say, WDW!
