Is it the "DIS" boards or the "DIZ" boards? (pronunciation)

Pronunciation, I guess you would go with "diz" as in dizney.
Coupon / Qpon Your guess is as good as mine. I say DIS.
I say DIS and he says DIZ...hmmm...
I pronounce it as DIZ.
I say Dis, as in discussion. Of course, I'm from the south and alot of people think I talk a little different anyway!
Hmm..in the podcasts they pronounce it "Diz", like Diz-nee...
But ever since I started here for some reason I have said it "D-I-S", like actually saying out each letter, and I just can't get that way out of my head!
I say diz, never gave it any thought
I say Diz like in Diz nee.
I say DIZ as well
I say DIZ and my friends say it the same way
I agree with DIZ as in DIZ-nee!
Count me in the "diz" gang.
Another one for "diz"
DIS, as an acronym for "Disney Information Station", should probably be pronounced Dis, not Diz. But then again, many other acronyms and abbreviations for such examples as LASER and Show Business, are pronounced as Lazer and Show Biz.
My DW and I have had a somewhat similar argument going on for some time now - I say tomato, she says tomato...
I say dis but I think it should be Diz.
Also does Dis really stand for "Disney Information Station".
I've never really thought about this one. I've always said Diz.
Yep. A truly useful thing to know on a WDW trivia game perhaps.
Another for Dis here, but I'm an Okie....
... but the point is that it was named the Disney Information Station BECAUSE the acronym is the first part of the name "Disney." It's not like it was a happy accident.
It was someone or someones brainstorming, trying to get creative about it. I'll bet a box of Mickey bars that the name DISboards was dreamt up before they thought of what words those initials would stand for.
It started with DISney, not with Disney Information Station.
Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong ....
Separate names with a comma.
