Don't forget ROA--Rivers of America

DangerMouse 07-18-2007 06:57 PM

You may also consider including the closest airport abbreviations: LAX, SNA and LGB.

Already had LAX. LGB and SNA were added. Thanks.

DangerMouse 07-18-2007 07:02 PM

I see another demand for a Hydro sticky in our future! :wizard:

DLR29 07-18-2007 07:35 PM

RRCtS-Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin. I don't call it RR
ETR-Enchanted Tiki Room
SWSA-Snow White's Scary Adventures
MI:M&SttR-Monster's Inc: Mike & Sulley to the Rescue

These are just abbreviations that I use, you don't have to add them.

kiwitravel 07-18-2007 08:11 PM

Just a couple
 
CI - Carousel Inn
FI - Fairfield Inn
MB - MailBoomer
TMAWP - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
GGC - Gadgets Go Coaster
MTP - Mad Tea Party
PPF - Peter Pans Flight
MB - Matahorn Bobsleds
SLCB - Storybook Land Canal Boats
MTWR - Mister Toads Wild Ride


I thought SW should be Sun Wheel

I have seen Monster's Inc: Mike & Sulley to the Rescue called just MI which I listed. But even that is not that common. The others you use do not seem to be commonly used, but I am open to the opinion of others. For now I would like to keep Roger Rabbit as RR and Monsters Inc as MI until more feedback comes from others. Thanks for the ideas.

I have GGC already, and I usually see Peter Pan's flight called just PP. I have seen SLCB (sometimes called SBLCB) and added SLCB. I also added SW as I forgot that one. The others I have to confess I have never seen, so would like input from others whether any or all of these have some level of common use before adding them. Thanks.

DangerMouse 07-18-2007 11:14 PM

I personally prefer the shorter abbreviations. Trying to figure out what "MI:M&SttR" is just way too confusing for me.

Another couple that are frequently used on this board, but not listed are:

TL - Tomorrowland
FL - Fantasyland (I realize it could also stand for Frontierland, however, most people here use it when referring to FL during EE)

Thanks. I debated whether to add these in the first place, especially FL for reasons you cited, but will go ahead and at them.
