    Finally caught up on the permits this week, nothing else really exciting. There were a ton of permits for the S.A.M.S project all over property. We have seen this abbreviation in the past and I think the consensus was that is as cast member access control system.

    I wouldn't mind finding out what 'Norway VIP Space' is all about. Corporate sponsor lounge? DVC/Chase lounge? Club 33 east? Or, god forbid, cabanas?

    I believe there was always a corporate lounge above the entrance to the ride formally known as Maelstrom.

    There was.. This brings up a good point though. How many "lounges" are sitting unused at Epcot right now?

    MS
    Norway
    Seas
    Land
    ..What others am I forgetting?

    And with all these empty spaces, they turn Image Works into a DVC lounge smh

    It's not used?
    Doesn't Canada have one as well?

    You overestimate the abilities of five year olds.

    I have a ten year old who can come close to being that neat, but my five year old, nope.

    Seas is still used for private events. I don't believe its a sponsored lounge though.

    On February 13th we started to put together the pieces of the gondola system puzzle based on two recent permits. On Feb 14th Disney files 39 notices of commencement, a large number of which are for the SAMS project.

    On March 6th, I post the permit that shows what it likely to the AOA/Pop gondola station. On March 7th, Disney files 35 notices of commencement, a large number of which are for the SAMS project.

    More then 25 NOCs in one day is very rare. I see maybe 1 or 2 days a year with the many.

    Let the conspiracy theories begin! ;)

    This project has popped up from time to time over he past couple years and covers areas all over WDW. Best guess is that it's some sort of CM access control system.

    Looks like they don't want to delay things and want to get moving forward....

    With Star Wars opening soon.. they will need a lot of transportation. I can bet the monorail and buses will be outrageously busy or failing.
