    Ok, call me newbie, retarded, stupid, or whatever, but what the heck to all the acronyms/abbreviations mean that are on this board. Can someone help??

    I found a post with "CRT" and had no clue. I've seen many others...

    I'm not going to call you "retarded" as that is not a nice word to call anyone but CRT is Cinderella's Royal Table- a very hard ADR (advanced dining reservation) to get in the MK (Magic Kingdom).

    What else can we help you with? :)

    People use "bump" to bump the thread to the top of the page so it isn't at the bottom or on the next page, etc. They basically use that to keep the page on the front so people can reply to it so it doesn't get lost.
