Limited Time Magic ..... just a huge disappointment!

Ok, who else is with me?
4 weeks into the year and I think Disney really dropped the proverbial ball here!!!!
This entire "Limited Time Magic" has been so LAME.... it's a joke!

Come on Disney!!!..... Really??? This is all you can come up with??!!?

I agree. How disappointing. It would have been MUCH better if they had just come up with 12 ideas, one for each month, to run all month long...this really just feels like they keep trying to pull something "limited" out of their proverbial butts each week. sigh. It's particularly disappointing to see them offer things they have every single year as a NEW special thing. We expect better Disney!

Exactly...one a month would have been great.

Or they could just do nothing. Why does every year need a promotion? I think Disney shot themselves in the foot on this by creating an expectation. And after The Year of a Million Dreams promotion. Everything after that is a giant let down.

However, it being only 4 weeks in, they could still pick up the ball they dropped and attempt to run with it. Time will tell.

This one was a clunker right from the get go based on name along. The "Limited" made it feel like you were somehow getting less magic if you weren't there during one of the promos. Lame.

IMO that's what they've been doing so far... January's was long lost friends, which was the most appreciated an d February's seems to be love week.

The rest is all crap.

So, as I'm arriving the day love week is ending, I'm bound to getting crap.

I'll be there. That's all it matters!

Yes, but it would be really nice if they carried the one good idea on for the whole month. Even if they couldn't do it everyday, they could do it on weekends throughout the month, kinda like the Disneyland Bayou Bash/Mardi Gras deal. That'd be better than this! Seriously I am really beginning to feel that nothing extra would be much better than them trying to play off some of this "limited time magic" as a special perk to guests...LOGO week?! I mean COME ON! It's like they think we are all stupid!

I'll be there the same week as you, and I was kind of thinking the same thing. Love week ens when I get there, so I guess I won't be "feeling the love" the week I am there. Oh well- being there is ALWAYS better than being at home in the snow and cold! Let my own week of Limited Time Magic begin- I'm there, I'll enjoy it!

You mean possibly even worse than last years non event. That very few people could take advantage of, THE ONE I WAITED FOR ON NYE, THAT NEVER REALLY CAME.

I certainly don't go for the special weeks but if Disney says they're doing 52 weeks of special things, I expect that they'll do it. That's why everyone is so upset. It's not really because we care so much about the weeks themselves but the fact that Disney really has dropped the ball.

This is well stated, MrsDuck!

I really liked this idea when I heard about it on NYE. I thought it was ambitious to have something "new" every week, but if anyone could do it, it would be Disney. I say recycle the Long Lost Friends week for folks - there was great feedback on that week

Looks like Disney changed things up a bit......
Instead of something "new" .... Limited Time Magic... every week...
they are doing a 2+ month long LTM trolley show!?

Seriously??
all they did was give them new costumes..... which they desperately needed anyway! and put some nice flowers on the trolley.... to go right along with the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.

I love the singers and the trolley and look forward to watching them every trip. And it will be GREAT to see them in new costumes.
But.... seriously ..... to call it limited time magic??!!
