Cast Member Lingo!

So I have noticed multiple times throughout the Facebook pages that many people get confused when they see different Cast Member acronyms or terms. It can be confusing at first to understand all the Disney lingo at first or even while you are in the applying stages! I decided to make a little list of the basic terms that Disney College Program participants and Cast Members use to give you a little idea in what the heck we are talking about! Enjoy!
