“I got a 107 at WLE!” | Common Disney Acronyms

  

disney acronyms

I think every business has some sort of acronym that represents their company’s motto, safety tip, or what have you. They are a great way for employees to remember important bits of information and relay them in a quick manner. Disney is no different, expect in one way: instead of just one or two acronyms, they have HUNDREDS.

I am not joking. Literally, everything I was taught throughout my training and work experience was shortened into some sort of abbreviation. Magic Kingdom is often referred to simply as “MK.” A GAC (pronounced gah-ch) is a guest assistance card. At my job, WLE and RPW were used to signify which station you were working at.

My favorite acronym was the one for Animal Kingdom. Anyone that has worked for the Walt Disney Company hardly ever calls Animal Kingdom by its name. Instead, everyone says “DAK” (dah-kuh). I still call Animal Kingdom DAK, which is funny when I am talking to non-Disney employees and I realize they have no idea what I am talking about.

Disney is also a big fan of codes; codes that only their employees would know. The reason behind this is really quite genius. Cast members employ talking in code so that they can discuss things that are not quite appropriate for guests to hear. Take for instance there was an issue with a ride that required it to stop momentarily. Instead of saying this verbatim, the cast members would use the code that represented the issue. At my work location, when the train had to close, we said it was “101.” When it was back up and running, the train was then “102.” These are common codes used throughout the Walt Disney World attractions. Another common code is a “103”, which is a bathroom break.

And being the mature adult that I am, my coworker (Hi Nichole!) and I came up with our own set of codes, which were not exactly Disney protocol. Not to be crude, but there were a lot of hot dads roaming the Disney streets. So whenever Nichole or I would see one, we would radio each other that we spotted a “105”, and he was giving us a “107”, which is family fever! Definitely not the most appropriate use of the radios, but it was funny nonetheless. =D

So next time you are vacationing at WDW, listen out for those codes and abbreviations! Maybe you can even impress a cast member by asking if the ride is “101”…or freak him/her out by giving them a wink and declaring them a “105”, ahahaha! =P
