Common Theme Park Forum Abbreviations | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

*Sticks thread*

Wow, some of those even I didn't know. :lol:

Instead of SM for Space Mountain or Splash Mountain, I like to say SpaM or SplaMo. :lol:

Some of them are used quite frequently over at several Disney sites I post at... plus some of them I've heard of at work (DDP, DDE, etc.)

Ha, I just call them Space and Splash, but hey---doesn't hurt to put them as both SM's. Although, SplaMo and SpaMo are interesting takes on them, Sledge. :)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too many acronyms! Spare me them and call them by their actual name (unless they're common.... like MK). It took me a day to figure out that ATL was Atlanta.

C'mon guys. It was a commercial. You've never seen the commercials (I think Sprint) about people that text too much and then when they are talking in normal conversation they are still using the text abbreviations.

All I remember from the cell phone commercials is the Cingular guy. Wait.... wrong company. Wait..... he's gone and been combined with AT&T?
