Yes and no. Jason's an Ops guy. This is a normal shuffle as far as he's concerned. Means his bosses think he's smart and on an upward track within the company. More significant is Sam and Erin's moves with regards to Epcot.At first blush this seems to just be a general mid-level executive shuffle.
But the important sentence would appear to be that they've promoted a Californian named Jason Kirk who was part of the wildly successful DCA re-build/re-launch and made him the VP of WDW Transportation. Hmm...
I'm not advocating expansion but the current state of transportation infrastructure other than the bus systems at the Magic Kingdom is mediocre at best. Monorails with mold, chipped paint and a knack for being hit by work tractors. Ferryboat system for the resorts that can barely handle a crowd on a night in January. Watercraft has for years wanted another large ferry to bring the total up to four and to replace the small launches with more large cruisers but what did Sam decide to spend transportations money on? Bendy Busses and more bus stops for the MK. Sam loves buses because all he ran in San Francisco was the bus division. Anyone who doesn't love buses as much as Sam is a step up for transportation department and anyone visiting the Magic Kingdom.
