Limited Time Magic

OK I am a little behind on reading Disney news and blog. I just read about the 2013 Limited Time Magic. Has anyone seen or heard any dates for the special weeks planned? Will any of them be planned in January 2013?

Nothing announced for January yet. I'm cautiously optimistic...

The press release did say 52 weeks of magic. Gave the impression that there would be SOMETHING for each week. Don't know yet what the something might be. I wonder if the Jan/Feb ones will be as neat as some during the busier times.

98 days till we leave, 100 till we arrive at POFQ!!

Excited to see what the "extra magic" is during our week, though since we've never been it's all extra magic for us

I'm hoping for the obscure characters during our week(s). We cross over two weeks, so I'm hoping to see two different bits of magic . My guess is that there will not be 52 different types of magic, that they'll repeat some of them in each season and I'm sure they'll all be pretty cool.

There is a fb page called Walt disney world photopass share in which you can find people with similar dates to yours to share the photopass.however, photopass plus works a little bit different since the plus card has a different system to be able to share, you can read about it in that page

Crowd level in January

Just booked a trip last thursday for the beginning of january

I have been to disney in may, july, and for nye so am used to crazy crowd levels. I have heard that January is "slower" but was wondering what we should expect?

About how long are wait times for e-tickets?

I have heard that fp is sometimes not used during slower times? is this true for january?

tia

I was there this year Jan 7 to 14 and was not crowded at all. Wait times for most attractions went from 0 to 20 mins most days. We did use some FP for big attractions like splash mountain which did have a longer wait time.

For us it was a great time to visit don't know about e tickets since we stayed on property.

We will be there from 1/19-1/26!!! It is a surprise so don't tell DS 12 & DD 10! We haven't been since 2008 and we are staying at CBR for the first time. I am hoping the park will not be too crowded, it would be great to have lots of room to move around in the parks.

That is an interesting take, if the repeat the magic throughout the year. Here's hoping an character week happens in January.
