I could be wrong but a lot of people would be tickle with special meet and greets bringing back characters that are no longer daily- you wouldn't think that would cost a lot and tickle a lot of guests

And just to be fair, DISNEY WORLD is dropping the ball. Disneyland's next event (which starts Thursday, as opposed to the three day event last weekend) sounds great!

How about a positive spin on the Limited Time Magic? What would you like to see for limited time magic?

I'd enjoy a forties week (maybe the 40th week of the year?) with showings of classic Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse cartoons, and maybe a special retro parade with antique vehicles and old fashioned floats.

So has it been said that Disney is officially limiting Limited Time Magic?

When they first announced, I had a few ideas.

Princes. They don't get a whole lot of face time.
"Pets" think 101 Dalmations, Aristocats, Land and the Tramp, Pluto, ect. Would be really cool if they donated part of the profit to shelters or rescue groups.
Maybe something about Disney sweets? Special edition sweets and being back discontinued goodies.
Game show week?? Get chances to play famous "older" game shows, family feud, price is right, ect. I realize this has nothing to do with Disney. I think it's just part of my deep desire to meet Bob Barker.

That makes sense, though... If the events are going to be announced last-minute they're only a draw for locals. Most DLR guests are locals; most WDW guests are tourists. So you'd expect the parks division to concentrate the "52 weeks of magic" at the park where they're likely get the biggest revenue boost from it.

Disney Parks is a single entity. If they have 40 events unique to DLR and 12 that are either unique to WDW or celebrated on both coasts, they've delivered on their promise of 52 weeks of magical surprises.

The World of Walt site says that some of the events will be surprises... which I kind of like, because it's a hint of suspense. I wonder if there is something going on this week there and we just haven't heard about it yet?

I'll be there rom 1/19-1/26 and will let you know if there is something happening that is not announced beforehand.

Yesterday, outside the Golden Horseshoe at Disneyland a former cancan girl was showing off moves ( and she still had 'em). A CM told me her daughter would be dancing in the new show. They were really talking it up to anyone who walked by.

I bought one of those Minnie headbands on our last trip in Sept/Oct.

Limited Time Magic at Disneyland blew me away today! The Salute to the Golden Horseshoe was a fantastic show. As a girl who likes Disney history I was entertained and so was my 5 year old who won't sit still for any show! Yeah Disneyland!

January 14-20 Limited Time Magic

"Winter Wonderland

The forecast at Walt Disney World Resort is sunny with a chance of flurries! For one week, from January 14 to January 20, 2013, the Canada Pavilion at Epcot is hosting a magical Winter Wonderland location where you and your family can play in the "snow." Here, you can also meet, greet and pose for photos with some favorite Disney Characters."
