    Is there a glossary of acronyms anywhere? Most of them I can figure out, but some leave me stumped. Planning a first trip to WDW in December for my family of 4 (two boys 5 and 4).

    Hi Pamela,

    I have just recently entered the world of acronyms myself and it can be very frustrating when you really can't figure out what they mean.  I also have learned most of them, but there are still many I am sure that I will never figure out.  I used to think that DH, DS, DD, etc.... stood for Disney husband, Disney son, Disney daughter, etc... but just a little while ago found out that it really stands for "DEAR" or "DARLING" and not "DISNEY" (I think Disney sounds better than Darling.....(BTW) by the way!).  I did just very recently find out though that some people do consider "DISNEY" to be what it stands for, so I guess I wasn't all wrong!   Another example is "LOL".....I thought this stood for "Lot's of Love", but really it stands for "Lot's of Laughing".....see it really does take practice!  Anyhoo, I do know that Moms Panelist Bret has answered a similar question about acronyms where he actually explains the main ones out there and this is where I picked up most of my recent knowledge of following this lingo. HERE is the link to his answer and if you use the "Search" tool on the Moms Panel main page and enter the word "acronyms" and GO! then you will see a few more answers given on this subject.  Have a magical WDW trip in December!

    Best wishes,
