    What do you think is above the shops on Main st. and Buena Vista st?

    Do you really know whats used in that space? or in New Orleans Square? (Besides Club 33); or if you could change what they use the space for, what would you do and why?
    When I was a young girl I used to think it would be so neat if they made the upper floors in to hotel rooms. Doubt that would work now, ever. My choice would be elevated ceilings in shops and possibly more gallery space, shops or even restaurants. Possibly a walk through attraction. What would you do?

    Not counting the buildings in Town Square, there isn't a true second story down Main Street. If you go inside the shops, you will see that the ceilings tend to be a bit high in many spots. There would be no room for a second floor. From what I understand, there are narrow hallways that connect the second story facades for access to the windows (accessed from backstage), but no actual rooms. When the time comes to put pumpkins in the windows or change the interior lighting of the windows, it is done from these hallways. Some of the facades have a third story, and I think those simply have a ladder for access from the second story hallway of those specific locations.

    Next time you are on Main Street at night, look at the Emporium's second story. You can usually make out the unpainted plywood that lines the hallway for that store as it is lit by interior ceiling lights.

    They're lounges and game rooms for Tilly and the other AAs to hang out in after hours.

    New Orleans 2nd story has a Green Room for the NO performers. If I remember correctly, there are also some small offices up there.

    Well let's see. If I remember correctly, there is a dentist, a piano teacher, a land title guy, perhaps a seamstress somewhere living up there.



    In all honesty, a lot of sound processing, networking equipment, lighting dimmers, above the camera shop I believe is a fireworks control area. Above the new gallery I've seen a bunch of TV monitors with a big time code display.

    There is a CM area above the French Market. (yes, I looked behind the curtain) The rest of NOS is the Dream Suite, backstage above Blue Bayou, and Club 33. What is above the French Market... I don't know, but I'd like to.

    what does "CM" and "NOS" stand for?

    By the way, did anyone find out what's above the french market?

    CM = cast member, employee of Disney parks
    NOS = New Orleans Square

    I would imagine there isn't much space in the Main Street building "second stories" because the buildings were designed to have a full first floor with only the illusion of having a second full sized floor. It's trickery at its finest

    Its the backside of the 33 lobby, and the upper area butts up to the trophy room dining room, and housed the trickery control center for said room.

    As far as I know all buildings in Town Square besides the train station have second floors big enough for offices. Not entirely sure what they're being used for. I could Imagine them as break rooms and offices.
