A List of Common Abbreviations, Cruise edition


DIS Veteran
Jun 16, 2019
I looked through the thread A List of Common Abbreviations and did not see cruise specific terms listed. Since that thread is closed I cant simply add a list to it so I am starting one here. I will self report to a mod if I dont hear before then in case its something they think would make a good stickie or should be added to the other thread. I am just getting this started now with a simple C+P of the common abbreviations from the other list. I am debating leaving the parks specific terms and just making the cruise entries another color (currently green) or deleting the parks specific terms. If anyone has a preference LMK. Will edit this OP with new terms as I find them by searching the DISboards.

Feels good to have a constructive cruise project to work on right now. :)
