Cosmic Rays will sell you some soup. This week only. Because it's winter, I guess.
I was wrong about this. It's the SOUPer Bowl.

Quote:
Plus, stop by Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland for Super Sunday menu items, including "Soup-er Bowls" of lobster bisque and tomato basil bisque.

And from what it says, the soup was available only on Sunday.

I'm not grateful for that pun, for sure.

They better be careful.

Surprised the lawyers didn't have them call it "The Big Game" soup.

We head down on the 23rd and if they do nothing at all, I'll still be grateful that I was able to go, and I'll be back next year. I'll be grateful to my God and to my husband for agreeing that we could afford it. But I won't be grateful to Disney for trying to sell me a bowl of soup or "allowing" me to vote on something. I could be wrong, but this is my outlook.

Honestly, most of us make our own fun in the parks. We take a wonderful place and put our own spin on it. We get up early or we sleep in and stay fresh for the fireworks. We sit down for most of our meals or grab burgers when we feel the urge. We ride the rides all day long or we stroll the parks taking in the details. The promotions really don't matter that much. I think most people on here that seem to be complaining are simply stating that they think this is a silly promotion and an inconsistent one at that. They think Disney could have done better and I think they could have too. Will it affect my trip at all? Not in the least, but its fun to discuss.
I don't mean gratitude to Disney specifically, I mean it as a way of living/being.

It was there Saturday but I didn't check Monday. It was pretty decent, but not as good as the lobster bisque in Epcot lol.

Magical upgrades, magical free cookies, magical fastpasses, etc. But with LTM, everyone has an opportunity to participate in the week's events, whatever they may be. Everyone who is there that weeks gets the chance to buy the soup, buy the special merchandise, etc. No one is left out. And the people arriving the next week get the same chance but just with different stuff or themes. I get the concept of the promotion and I do like it. Face it, everything in life is limited. Our kids are only little for a short time. Some people are only with us a short time. Some people's good health is only a short time. For others, finances might be limited. I like the idea of grabbing on to the time we have and making the best of it. I for one am just happy that I am going to Disney with my boys this September. And if I dance with a villian or get to talk like a Pirate, then great. If not, I will probably talk like a Pirate anyway and make my own LTM!! Argh!!
OK. That just made my day! Thanks for sharing some LTM!

I think they will listen to the fans on this and figure out some engaging ideas. I think one of the surprises is Spectromagic coming back for the first time in years. That would make a lot of Disney World fans happy. I wouldn't write off Limited Time Magic quite yet. I was impressed they did the Super Bowl Parade for not just the MVP day, but the days before also. I think the point of Limited Time Magic is not to do something over the top every week, but to do different little moments of magic thoughout the year. The 13th hour event sounds cool and I'm tempted to do this.

If they do bring Spectromagic back, but only for a limited time, I hope they announce it ahead of time. That I would book a separate trip for!

well the limited time magic that had 3 little pigs, big bad wolf, scrooge etc seemed to go down well..........the queues to see these characters was ridiculously huge.

we got pics from afar but that was it.

It's an Extra promotion! Idk to me it's just bizarre to complain about a lot of things people complain about on here. We practice daily gratitude in our family, and it's a beautiful thing.
I'm with you!!

We will be there for a couple of days during True Love week. I hope that my husband and I have the opportunity to get a photo with one of the Disney couples! Wouldn't that be a great memento of our trip?!

so I didn't care much for the Limited soup. However, I got to meet Yellow Rabbit and Tweedle Dee & Dum this week. Why didn't they advertise that?
