Permits 2021

A few notes about the purpose of this thread...

Despite the name, this thread actually lists Notices of Commencement (NOCs) for construction projects around the WDW property. A NOC is a document that must be filed before work on a specific project can begin and is usually filed shortly before work starts. It's main purpose is to assure that contractors get paid on time once the work is complete. NOCs will sometimes have an explicit expiration date, but most of the time a date is not specified in which case they expire one year from the filing date.

The documents generally don't contain much information. They will list the location where the work is being done, for example the name of a ride or store. They also show a description of the work being done which is normally very vague, for example "Electrical" or "Construction". Some of the NOCs I post will just say "BVCC". This stands for Buena Vista Construction Company which is Disney's internal construction company. The work description on BVCC permits is almost always the very vague "Provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction".

In recent years I have just been posting "interesting" permits. With the lower permit volume that I am now seeing and with improvements in the software I use to track permits I can keep up with posting all permits. I will make a new post for these every couple days.

The post will contain permits from the South Florida Water Management District. These are filed whenever a project will effect storm water control in some way, for example creating new hard surfaces like building or roads where there were not hard surfaces before. These permits are not as common but are normally for larger project and contain much more detail them the NOCs.

I notice 2 or 3 permits for plumbing work on Tom Sawyer Island. Installing restrooms I wonder? IIRC I think there was only one set near the landing stage.

Can someone explain Disney's permits to me? Are they required to file any changes to the parks with the local gov or something, or are these just their plans? I've never known and always wondered! Thanks for any info!

Although we call them permits, what we mainly discuss in this thread are actually Notices of Commencement. These need to be filed for any constriction work over $2500. It in a notice that work is about to start at a specific location and is important for making sure contractors get paid when the work is complete.

Occasionally I will also post about South Florida Water Management permits. These are a much more involved document that must be filed whenever work will impact storm water run off.

Dan - How do you know which street address relates to which building, attraction, etc. in a given park? For example, how would one know that the address for Universe of Energy (Now GOTG) is 1350 Avenue of the Stars? Do the addresses just move around like residences, so Play! is 1352, M:S is 1354, etc.?

My apologies if this has been asked before.

Yes, it was great when I learned about this a year or two ago. Prior to that I had a spreadsheet that had been handed down from previous permit maintainers that had been gathered from various sources. Occasionally you would get permits that listed both the address and name so I would add these to the spreadsheet.

To make things even easier I recently wrote a tool to scrape all the address data from the RCID mapping site. I use a piece of custom software to record the permits, so all I have to do it type the first part of the address and it will lookup the full address and location name from that data.

That is really cool. Thank you for sharing this and the explanation, and more importantly, the time you take to share with all of us!
