    • Free-D
      A pin with a rubber embellishment. Acronym for Fastened Rubber Element for Extra Dimension.
    • Fab 5
      The big guys: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto.
    • WDW
      Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Includes the four major theme parks, Downtown Disney, and the Disney resort hotels.
    • DLR
      Disneyland Resort in California. Includes the Disneyland Park, Disney's California Adventure, resort hotels, and Downtown Disney.
