Disney World Acronyms and Abbreviations

Ever heard Disney speak and just been lost and confused? I know when I first introduced my husband to Disney he was lost with my Disney speak. Disney World Acronyms are everywhere! I would say things like okay let’s park at the TTC and then take the tram over to the MK to ride the TTA! And naturally, my husband (then boyfriend) was very lost.
