Ok boys and girls it's time for this public service announcement. Outside of NASA, there is one place where abbreviations have grown almost uncontrollably. Almost all threads here have abbreviations in them and I found it really frustrating to have to stop each time to figure out what they meant before continuing to read those threads. The culture here makes it difficult for new comers to understand what many threads are talking about. For those who do not frequent these threads as much as some do here is a list I compiled so I could decode what people are talking about. There are still a couple of them I haven't figured out even after looking at the point charts for DVC (Disney Vacation Club). If you have other abbreviations to add please add them to your reply to this thread. I will then edit this post to add them to this list from time to time. If I am so bold as to suggest that they be kept at the top so people can refer to them as needed. So, here they are: Disney World: AKV Animal Kingdom Villas BCV Beach Club Villas BWV Boardwalk Villas HHIR Hilton Head Island Resort OKW Old Key West Resort SSR Saratoga Springs Resort THV Tree House Villas VB/VBR Vero Beach Resort DWL/WLV Disney's Wilderness Lodge Villas DCR Disney's Contemporary Resort BLT Bacon Lettuce and Tomato hehe BLT Disney's Bay Lake Towers at the Contemporary Resort POFQ Port Orleans French Quarter GFR Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Disneyland Resorts: VGC Villas at Grand Californian GCH Grand Californian Hotel PPH Paradise Pier Hotel DH Disneyland Hotel Other: DCL Disney Cruise Lines UY Use Year Still Unknown: HIFS Keep them coming.
