How well do you know Disney theme park lingo?

We'll catch you after MiSi and meet you at CRT

By Thomas Metevia - Digital Content Producer

"I'm just getting to DAK. I moved my FP for FoTLK to 3 p.m. Want to meet there, then head to Poly after and watch HEA tonight?"

Translation: "I'm just getting to Animal Kingdom. I moved my FastPass for Festival of the Lion King to 3 p.m. Want to meet there, then head to the Polynesian after and watch Happily Ever After tonight?"

Some Walt Disney World, or WDW, guests are unlike any other people you will ever encounter. They share a common interest, their love of Disney, but also share the ability to speak a second language.

While this language isn't taught in schools, it can be learned over time with frequent visits to the parks. We'll show you some of the different abbreviations that are used by Cast Members (CM) and parkgoers alike. Use these abbreviations the next time you're making plans or messaging someone about the parks.
