Doc...I think that's an excellent idea. I'll have to put my thinking cap on, but I think you've hit most of the main ones.

I suppose you could add DVD, which we sometimes refer to when referencing the Disney subsidiary that actually sells DVC. I suppose you could also add:

BWV PV = Boardwalk Villas Preferred View

BWV SV = Boardwalk Villas Standard View

I think that 1BR, 2BR and GV are self-explanatory but who knows?

I've seen PH = pool hopping.

And EMH is brought up from newbies wanting to know if they qualify for it when staying at DVC resorts.

I'm sure there are others.

I've seen some others, but the DIS has rules.

One new one I think we need is HYS (Here's Your Sign).

This is great info. I know it's posted elsewhere (Technical Board?), but this would make a great sticky on each DVC board. That way, we'd have all the info nobody reads in one place!

I've also seen:

MNSSHP-Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
and not sure if it's exact, but

MVMCP-? Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party?

It took me a few guesses to figure these out when reading posts.
