    The DIS has an abbreviations list that is slanted heavily towards WDW here: www.wdwinfo.com/abbreviations.htm. There is no such list for DLR that I have ever seen. So I compiled one.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
